I have been doing my best to wade through the massive amount of email that was waiting for me when I got back from New Orleans.  My email is usually a beast anyway but I really wasn’t prepared for the effects of taking 4 days off.  It was a glorious 4 days off too!  I’d earned it with only one full day off in the last 6 months….yeah, I kind of work a lot!  I think it is one of the aspects of owning your own business AND working from home that catches up with you after awhile.  At least it does me.  There is always work to do, always something calling my name, etc.  Anyway, I’m rambling!  I’ve managed to respond to a lot of email over the last two days, I think I’ve got 60 or so left out of 390+, I’m making progress so if you are waiting on me for a response it won’t be much longer, I promise!

I also thought now would be a good time to post my summer schedule and new office hours.  With the kids getting out of school this week I’ll have to make some adjustments to the hours that I’m presently working since the two big ones don’t nap.  Last year, just days after school let out, Teagan suffered a severe vaccine reaction.  Our summer was filled with dark days as it was a very difficult time for our family.  Summer went by in a blur.  Our family is ready to enjoy this summer and I hope to embrace every spare moment with my children.  I’ve decided to take a break from my personal facebook account (and other distracting time sucks).  The turnaround time for galleries will not change.  I will still post on this blog (hopefully more often!), over on Finding Our New Normal and my 365 project.  I have big plans for this summer, projects and learning and crafts and adventures, I absolutely cannot wait!  In an effort to find balance, I’ve set some new summer office hours for our business:

Tuesday – Friday 6 pm to 10 pm
Saturday 9 am to 9 pm
Sunday & Monday Closed

I am usually out shooting on location on Saturdays.  Those clients with sessions booked in 2011 on either Sunday or Monday, your session will still be held on that date and time!  No other business will be conducted on Sunday or Monday outside of that shooting schedule until the Fall.

As always, if you need anything at all or would like to book a session, please email me at lstradtner@mac.com.  Happy summer y’all!
