Where have I been?

Ok folks, it has been quite the long stint since I last posted here.  Every blogger says it on a regular basis, but life has just been totally crazy.  My last post was in May, before I went to camp, before I got married, and before the current season at the theatre.  It was almost before the summer really started and now winter is starting.  I have been kind of bad about lots of things in the digital world of communication though.  I have been very slow at responding to emails, I have been behind on processing and sorting photos, and apparantly I am behind on getting videos together from the summer to go online.  Then there are the actual things that I havent been doing, like going to the gym.  Great.

So, will this just be a feeble attempt to try to get things moving on the blog again? I have no idea, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

So, if you got through that first paragraph and didn’t have a “wait, what?!” moment, you probably either already knew that I got married this summer, or you just missed that part.  Yes, since August 25 I have been happily married to Ruth and life is pretty good.  The wedding was beautiful, and everything seemd to go smoothly despite being out of the state at camp for the two months leading up to it.  We held the ceremony and reception at the Alta Lodge and we were happy to celebrate with friends and family.  Good times were definately had by all.  The weather was beautiful, the montains were beautiful, and the over atmosphere was great.  With a ceremony that we wrote ourselves, we were married by a mutual friend in one of the most beautiful places I can think of.  Don’t believe me? Here, see for yourself:

Working backwards in time from the wedding, the summer at camp was not one of the best.  Maybe that is why I refrained from writing during it.  I don’t know that I will say too much, though there is plenty to say about it.  The camps were under new ownership as of this past summer, and for some that transition was not so easy.  Suffice it to say, I saw some good friends mistreated in a very public manner and it got dragged out for the better part of the summer.  While I managed to spend the summer flying under the radar, there were grumblings about me as well.  Camp can be strange like that, it is just unfortunate and really hard when friends get hurt.

So let’s not dwell on the ugly past.  The theatre season is in full swing so life has been very busy.  Getting Annie up and open was a killer, but now there is a little room to breathe.  So in the mean time I have been prepping a bunch of my photos for my first ever gallery display!  I will be showing photos at the JCC in SLC for the month of January.  This is pretty darn exciting.  I have the prints on order and should get them soon and I am really excited to see them.  I am having all the prints done on metal with float mounts.  The test prints I had made earlier look amazing, it is a really cool finished product.  It would be hard to show what the prints look like in a photo, so any of you who find yourself in the Salt Lake area during January should stop by and see the gallery!

With that, I think that I need to stop staring at this computer screen. I have spent a lot of time in front of it in the past couple days. Besides being warm in bed sound much nicer!

  1. OooOooOOooh. Stunning picture! Seriously. And, congrats!
    I'm sorry to hear that camp wasn't everything it has been. Perhaps it's a good thing I wasn't there. I had quite the summer anyway. I have also somewhat fallen off the blogger bandwagon, but I do miss it. I'm ashamed to admit I have several three page letters in my notebook that were started to you, and never finished. Summer was nuts! But you're justified in thinking I'm a terrible friend.
    Are you going to be able to ski this year? I'm in school, by the way. Ditched the hardware store and started taking some liberal arts. Mostly for the experience, which has been lovely. We'll see where it goes. Finals right now, and then Christmas!
    There. Now I've written a letter in your comment box! I miss the real ones. But that is entirely my fault! I do apologize 🙁

    • I don't think you are a terrible friend, as I am sure you can tell, I understand that life gets in the way sometimes. I hope that school works out well for you, and if you ever want to take a break and be a Utah ski/board bum for a few days, you are always welcome. The snow isn't so great yet, but it will be. I will be back to skiing this winter, though I have been advised to take it easy since I had an injury and a year off. I will do my best not to re-break myself I suppose.
