Privilege and Division

I’ve hit this place lately in my blogging that is, once again, a place of blockage. I mean, I have composed several blogs over the past few weeks–foraging, recipes, whiny rants…you know, the usual. However, they’re all currently sitting in blogatory (that’s like purgatory for blogs, aka: ‘draft’ form). It’s just that the world has…

I Hate the Term New Normal

I’m sitting here, this Friday evening–and, all I keep thinking is HOW is already Friday? This past week both flew by and inched along, somehow simultaneously. (This blog post was actually started on Sunday. I feel like that was just yesterday, also it feels like last year.) This week, we started distance learning. My teen…

One Bowl Toasting Bread

2019 is all about the word ‘calm’ for me. My mental health needs calm more than it needs almost anything else these days; so, instead of an personal resolution, I’m just doing that trendy ‘word’ thing. (I have career resolutions, yes. That’s a little different though, and for different reasons.) I’m not very good at…

Main Floral’s Blog { Twin Cities Floral Photographer }

Did you notice the right hand column of my site? Over there ———>  and down a bit? You can now see Main Floral’s latest blog posts, since I write them all.  I am easily amused and think it’s cool that it pops up there, too. Do you guys even know how much knowledge I have…

2015 Cell Phone Favorites :: Minnesota Photography

Here’s the last post in my 2015 favorites, three-part, series. (That sounds fancy. Like a PBS mini series.) This post includes my favorite cell shots. None of them are masterpieces, or even sub-par works of art for that matter…but, they are my favorite’s, nonetheless. They all were taken on my Samsung Galaxy and edited, quickly,…

Whew! I Made It. Almost. :: Twin Cities Photographer

Who’s no where…yet everywhere, lately? Me. Because it’s December, and I am a photographer with my own clients, who also works in retail as a blogger, social media manager, email blast writer and creator, website updater and, of course, photographer.  (See old blog, about ‘other jobs’, here.)  This blog is going to focus on those…

It’s the Big Day! :: Wedding Photography Near Dassel

About a month ago, I got the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous wedding, in the little town of Dassel, Minnesota.  (Remember the engagement shots from awhile back?  Yup!  It was that couple.)  Dassel, from me, is just about an 80 minute trip west.  I showed up right around 10:30 in the morning, and met up…

A Day at Home :: Post 2/10

  My life in a nutshell?  I’m a part-time employee, as well as a stay-at-home mom.  Thanks to being able to primarily work from home, and my husbands schedule, both of those things are possible (though, together, they can be exhausting).  I, literally, do it all.  I change every diaper, clean every mess, make every meal,…

Anoka Headshots :: Male Portrait Photography

Client post!  I spose I have to take a quick break, here and there, from my regular posts to show off my clients, huh?  A few weeks back I posted a photo blog about the Saint Michael Head Shot Session, I did.  Well, sure enough, the beard came off and here we are, again.  This…

Trying Something Different…

Let me start this blog by saying…I hate this blog.  I hate my website.  I hate my postings on Social Media.  (What a way to start, huh?)  My first grade teacher would say that I just ‘strongly dislike’ these things…and, she would have asked me what it is about them that I strongly dislike.  My…
