Life Update

I have no pictures to share with you all yet this week, and I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to do any outfit pictures this week, although I certainly hope so. Last week’s little break brought about possible change in how the blog will function: Mr. Owl got a job.

Before last week, he was working from home either making custom furniture for people, or refurbishing/fixing furniture that had broken. It gave him a lot of spare time to, y’know, take my outfit pictures. But then he happened to re-apply at a custom doors place he’s been dreaming of working for, and they called him for an interview… and hired him the next day.

It was kind of a shock; they’d interviewed him for a position in shipping and hardware, which wasn’t his dream position but which he was willing to take… and when the interview was over, he didn’t expect to hear back from them for a few weeks. And then they called, and they told him they’d decided to move someone out of door-making and into hardware and shipping, and would he like to fill the empty position in door-making instead?

The answer, of course, was a resounding yes.

It’s exciting.

But on the flip side, I don’t want to press him to take my pictures after a long day at work, so most likely I’ll either try to take my own (which won’t be as good), or we’ll take outfit pictures on the weekends.

And, seeing as how I’m at the end of my work break, I’ll have to end this little update!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I’ll do my best to get the blog going again!

    Congratulations to Mr Owl, that’s so fantastic! I’m glad he has a job he’s so excited for, it’s always so lovely when the people you love have nice things happen to them. And you just post when you can lovely, we’ll look forward to whatever you have to give xx.

      I’m glad he got the job he wanted, too; I know how it is to work at a place you don’t particularly enjoy, and that’s not the best feeling! <3Β

    That’s a bummer. Was so looking forward to seeing the pictures, however, it’s totally understandable, and you have to be supportive with everything that Mr Owl does.Congratulations to Mr Owl By the way

      I know, I miss blogging with pictures. But hopefully soon we’ll find some sort of routine that works to fit taking pictures after we both get off work, or get enough outfit pictures saved up over the weekends that he doesn’t have to do anything on the weekdays.Β 
      Or I’ll steal his camera. πŸ˜‰
      Thank you!

    YAY!!!! Congrats to the adorable Mr. Owl! Fulfilling your dreams is the best thing ever! πŸ˜€ Come on, don’t worry about the outfit pictures. They look so…not worth mentioning when someone you love, finds the job of his dreams! I mean, apparently I love your outfits and your pictures, but life is more than that, so we all understand! I’ll be glad to see any post, be it outfits or just writing about everyday life! Many kisses! And once again, congrats to your Owl πŸ˜€

    That’s awesome! I know I was really happy when I got a job. Your outfits still look great even when you take the pictures yourself πŸ™‚ hehe.
