A couple days ago, I updated my Facebook status with the following: Packing for the East Coast and my mind can't even wrap itself around the idea of 35 degree weather. I don't even own a coat. You know where this is leading, right? Riiiight?!
More than a few people had an opinion on the matter (It's not THAT bad... We wear capris and no jackets when it's 35 degrees... This weather feels like a heat wave...) and someone even described the weather as...wait for it...BALMY.
On Sunday JD and I headed to Hartford for the CT Professional Photographers of America Conference. We arrived just past 1 a.m. in the morning and groggily checked in. I was sure I'd be able to fall asleep, but at 3:30 a.m. I stared at the ceiling in despair. A few hours later, I heard a voice outside our door and he said it was snowing. I sprung from bed and opened the window and saw snow! falling! from! the! sky! Should I repeat that last part again?! SNOW! I jumped on the bed and shrieked It's snooooowing!
Later I was corrected when someone told me it wasn't snow, but flurry. Umm, I suppose there are different descriptions of snow, but for people who claim 35 degrees as balmy, I think it's safe to say they're not likely the most trustworthy weather sources! ;)
It was an honor to speak and share the stage with Justin and Mary Marantz and Zach and Jody Gray...we were treated so well and welcomed with opened arms. I'm incredibly thankful for the amazing people I met and I'm excited to see where the industry is headed!
