When The Housewife Is Away The Ghost Will Play

As y'all know I was away the last few weeks in North Carolina visiting my family. This is the longest I have been away from Jeremy by choice (as oppose to the military sending him away) and definitely the longest I have been away from the cats and our spirits. I missed them. And judging by the messages and pictures I received while gone, it's safe to say they all missed me too.

Katniss In All Her Forms

A few weeks back I joined a group on Facebook called Sounds Weirdly Specific But Ok. It's an odd group with the most random posts. One of the types of posts I like watching the most are the photoshop request ones. Some of the photoshopped pictures are hilarious and some are just genius. I decided to send a picture of Katniss and ask them to do their magic.

Exploring Fukuoka (Family Vacation Part One)

After all the chaos from the Balls was over and done with, Jeremy and I escaped the base and traveled south to Fukuoka. Ever since we arrived in Iwakuni, I had wanted to go see the German Christmas Markets in Fukuoka but never had the chance to see it the previous Christmases. There are two Christmas Markets in Fukuoka, one at Hakata Station and one at Tenjin Station. Since the one at Hakata Station was bigger we decided to go to that one. Jeremy and I like to travel cheap so we took the back roads from Iwakuni to Fukuoka and it took 8 hours to get to Fukuoka. Had we taken the Sanyo Expressway, it would have only taken 3.5 hours but it would have cost us $60 one way. The drive was nice though and we only got stuck in traffic once.

MCAS Iwakuni Marine Corps Birthday Balls

Summer of last year (can't believe it's already 2018!)  I received an email from our FRO saying that the MCCS needed to hire a photographer for the Marine Corps Balls this past November. A few hours later Jeremy forwarded me the same email saying that I need to apply. So I did. I interviewed for it even though I seriously doubted I was what they were wanting. But surprisingly I was offered the gig.

Checking Off Part Of My Japan Bucket List

Last week my friend, Julie, helped me arrange an amazing opportunity. I had found out that one of her friends dresses people in gorgeous kimonos. I asked Julie if she could ask her friend would let me take pictures next time she was dressing someone. Julie messaged me back saying that her friend, Kazue, was going to be dressing some people for a performance that weekend and that I was invited to come take pictures.

Did You Miss Me? I Missed Me. 

I know I have been gone for 6 months. I apologize. These past few months I took off from not just blogging but pretty much everything. I let people get in my head and I believed them when they made it seem I wasn't good enough. Before April I was already struggling with not feeling good enough at photography, being a good friend, and just struggling with my own self image.
