oh summer, are you finished with me yet? because i am finished with you. nothing personal, it's just that a girl can only take so much heat before her skin starts to melt and her hair turns into a permanent frizzy fixture atop her head. need proof of how hot is it? well, a} how often do you ever see me in shorts and b} i next to never go sleeveless. or, i guess you could always just check the temperature in phoenix via weather.com. either way you go, you should take note how hot it's been. 110 degrees and counting. now you understand why i am not smiling in these photos.
anyway, off the weather subject.. i'm beginning to sound like an old man.
husband and i just realized today that there are only two full weeks until we shoot our short film, the matchstick house! oh my goodness, so much to do, so little time! insurance: check! purchase equipment: check! obtain city permit, schedule police officer, receive authorization from the department of transportation: in progress! now all that is left is our rehearsal next sunday and the purchasing of props! boom. as intense as this journey has been, there is something to be said about the gratification that comes when you are pursuing your dreams. things won't be perfect in the beginning and there will be hiccups along the way, but it is pure bliss. no one is going to pursue your dream for you.. sometimes you've just got to put yourself out there and take a risk!
