Yesterday, I was driving home from school. All I could think was, "things are way too good...something is bound to happen. My boyfriend is amazing, I've finally found the best friends a girl could ask for, my photography business is bursting at the seams, I've been doing surprisingly great in school, and I love that wedding season is finally here. My luck is oddly good."

I should have knocked on wood because wouldn't you know it, this morning, on my way to work I had to pick up a sign from a place in town. As I was putting this sign in my back seat, I realized that my back driver side tire was completely FLAT. Like down to the rim. YIKES! What do you do about that? 

Well, I'm not so smart when it comes to driving and the right thing to do for a vehicle, so I drove about a mile away from where I was and put some air in the tire until it was filled and figured I'd make it to work....well then I realized that I really needed to get it fixed and not wait around at work because I had to drive into Savannah later that afternoon. 3 shops and a few hours later, I finally got an answer. I had to get the tire patched and it would be ready an hour later. 

UM, I had to get to work! We have a wedding this weekend and I had a ton of things to do! 
So, my sweet boss came and picked me up, took me to lunch and then to work. We got the work done and I made it through the day. 

Tonight we had our final rehearsal for The Vagina Monologues and our big show starts tomorrow night! It's so bittersweet. I've loved every moment of getting ready for the show. I love the new experience I've had and it's definitely gotten me out of my comfort zone. Tomorrow night, I go on stage for a production for the first time in my life. 500 seats. My goodness!!!

After rehearsal, I was driving through downtown with the windows rolled down. What a beautiful night. So I couldn't resist, I had all of my camera equipment in my car. I had to stop and do something I've been waiting to do. 

My favorite of the night.

It felt so good to kind of go back to my roots. Lately, it's been a lot of business photography for me lately. A lot of editing. A lot of work. But these photos were simple and I love how they turned out. No editing. Just the way they were taken. As I was waiting for the shutter to open back up, I just got to stand there and watch traffic go by. The breeze was amazing. I loved it. It set my mind at ease and it was like a new-found therapy. It was the perfect ending to my complicated, horrific, wonderful day. 

And at the end of the day, I still have the amazing boyfriend, the best friends a girl could ask for, 3 new photography jobs (1 is a wedding!) a day off from school tomorrow, still wedding season, a patch in my tire, and some lovely new photos. 
At the end of the day, life is still good.
