Watermelon Weekend

Today is nothing short of glorious. It’s really warm (hot), sunny with a bit of a breeze, and the entire weekend is forecast for much of the same. My day started with a positive bang: an editor of a national magazine contacted me to do a photo shoot for a story he’s covering. I’m delighted — the gig is next week. As if that isn’t fantastic enough, this evening is when I do that fun guy-and-his-vintage-cars shoot. I’m so excited — like a kid anxious to head to the fair. May you all have a warm, sunny weekend filled with good times and plenty of watermelon!

This is one of the sweetest photos I’ve ever seen.

I’m green with envy. Or more accurately, wet with envy!! It rains here EVERY DAY. And when the sun finally came out half an hour ago, it kept raining!! What’s up with that?!

Love the watermelon shot ๐Ÿ™‚

Congrats on the magazine photo shoot. You’ll give us more details soon, right?!

Have fun shooting the vintage cars tonight. Can’t wait to see the pictures and find out more about it!!

Wow! A national magazine!! You just started your photography business and now this!? That’s wonderful. Congratulations.

Can’t wait to see a preview from the vintage car gig too.

(Just so you know, I did write a new column BEFORE I came to visit your blog. ha ha)

P.S. I forgot to say that I love this photo too – my son loves watermelon, and when he was one year old, he ate it even more than he does now! It was so fun to watch him gobble it up!

This made me smile because we cut our watermelons in a different way. Been looking at the posts I missed Diane – enjoying them before I start work. ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a good day x
