Ok, so I have already failed at posting once a week. But at least it hasn't been 8 months since my last post.
Life for us has been pretty busy recently. I've started a new job working at a civil construction company here in Renton. I think one of my favorite things about it is the 5 minute commute! The people are really great and it's a good company. Right now I'm working as a temp but I'm praying that some contracts will go through and they'll be able to hire me permanently.
Other news on the job front, Bergen and I are giving our entrepreneurial skills a shot. No pun intended! We are working on drumming up a photography business. So far, we've gotten a few paying clients and are having a blast! Our spare time has been filled with designing business cards, reading whatever we can find about photography and Photoshop, pinning poses we like and having fun getting out with the camera. Check out our photography portfolio and if you or anyone you know in the Seattle area needs pictures done, be sure to let us know! Bergen has done a great job at editing and actually had his very own photo session this week that, might I add was a success! Photography been one of my "Life in the Middle" projects and I'm glad with lots of help and support from Bergen, family and friends it has been put into action.
My dad came to visit in September and we had a great time. We followed him around Seattle getting classic city landscape shots. As always with any Power get-together, we ate great food and got in a couple rounds of different games at Phyllis and Jeff's (my aunt and uncle). He was here for his birthday, so I made him strawberry shortcake and Bergen made white chicken chili for dinner.
There have been a few different things Bergen has talked about since we first started dating and I was able to experience one of them with him this past month: The Puyallup Fair. It didn't disappoint! We got fresh baked scones, saw the show animals, walked the exhibits and had fun with Karen, Stian and Kjellden. Being from Wisconsin, I've been to my fair share of fairs, but I'd never been to one like this! If any of you out-of-staters ever come to the area in September, you should definitely put this on your list.
Well, it is a rare occurrence for me to be up past 10:30 so I best be signing off to get some beauty sleep. Thanks for visiting!
