A Disappearing Act

By Erynecarter06

Yes. I did it again. I had a few solid weeks of posting, and just like that, I disappeared. It wasn’t on purpose. I promise. Life just got so busy that the blog took a back seat again. So, today’s post is simply a life update.

Foot: I’ve been on crutches with non-weight bearing since September 22nd. I go back on October 20th (5 more days!) and will be handing my crutches in. Well, I’m hopeful that is what will happen. I had a solid week of straight depression from being on crutches. I felt useless, and didn’t want to leave my house. It was hard, but I kept reminding myself others have it way worse than I do. I kept telling myself that 4 weeks isn’t that long, even though it felt like an eternity. But I slowly forced myself to get out and do more. And now, here we are, just 5 days away. Keep your fingers crossed that the crutches will be gone and I’ll only be in the boot a short time longer. I’m ready to be out walking and enjoying our beautiful fall weather!

Photography: Unfortunately, the business took a bit of hit during the month of October due to the whole crutches thing. But I’m truly lucky I have such amazing clients who didn’t mind being shuffled around to other dates. Seriously, they rock. The Etsy Shop seems to be picking up. I’m getting more sales that are from different parts of the country, which is super exciting! My goal was 10 sales for the year, and I hit 14 already. I’m hoping for a few more before the year is up.

I also started an Instagram account for my photography. I figured it would be a nice way to share my portfolio, both personal and professional work, without bombarding those on my personal Instagram account. I’m not sure why I didn’t do this before. Sure, it’s a pain to switch between the two, but it’s also pretty nice to have a social media portfolio of all of my work! And in a week, I’m already over 50 followers! Win!

The Reading Goal: This has been a bit of an…adventure. I’m right around 65 books read for the year. I have just under 3 months left. So somehow, I need to read 35 more books in the next 2 1/2 more months. And if I don’t make it this year, I will next year. (I also said this in 2012 and 2013!)

And that’s pretty much my life update. My foot, photos and reading. Oh… and if you missed it on Instagram… we bought a new couch over the long weekend. It’s pretty amazing, and I kind of never want to leave it again.
