a few months back, i had my lovely andy & yoko’s wedding in tulum.
i couldnt have wished it to be any better than the wedding was. except my sweet prince got to come along, so it actually was better than i could have imagined.
i go to so many wonderful places, 99.9% of the time, its just me solo. so this was especially special for me. i dont want to say it, but i shoot better when he’s there. i do. there’s comfort in knowing the one you love is a few feet away, all while I’m doing what I love. those two together, pretty powerful for me.
last night, in talking with him about growing and how my business is changing. he explained, well dont worry about me, you can work late and see me less, its ok. and while i appreciate that, its quite opposite of what I’m wanting. to me, success is not having so much work i never get to see friends and family, and spread so thin I see my boyfriend for an afternoon. no. i feel so blessed to have him in my life and for those 2+ years of growing my business while single and not even entertaining the idea of a boyfriend, i am not in those days any more. i get to choose what success means to me, i have to work to make sure that i am balanced, so i keep on loving all these areas.
having someone to love, has only helped me in my business. i work harder when i work because my time is valuable. i cherish a weekend we can have together. i have a sounding board to throw my ideas and thoughts of growth to. and in the rare chance that i get to have him along to another land I’m shooting on, I get to experience that warmth when the two things I love very much, collide. it cant always be that way, so i’m so thankful for the few times it can.
here are some moments of our time spent together in tulum.
sometimes i think mexico is overdone. but then driving down the tiny road leading to our bungalow resort in tulum. i immediately knew this was my kinda mexico. quaint. authentic. romantic. some of the best food. i cannot wait to get back.
with some very guided instruction, the babe is learning to shoot. so we dont end up 7 years down the road with a huge collage of only his face.
