Wizard of Ahhhhs

Personal

I don’t know when it started exactly. But I love it.

When I first started shooting professionally, I’d return from a wedding completely wiped out. My legs ached and my feet pulsed from walking for eight to nine hours straight. My good friend Greg Bumatay granted me the awesome opportunity to second shoot with him consistently when I first started which was great for gaining experience, but totally did a number on my feet.

After every wedding, I’d go home and plop on the couch and, like clockwork, JD would squeeze lotion into his hands and massage my feet. Being so tired from shooting, the only thing I could manage to mutter was Ahhhhh. It was such a treat after a long day…and, yes, I realize I’m totally spoiled.

These past couple of weeks having been absolutely insane for the both of us and I’ve been shooting a ton…which means I’ve been getting a lot of massages, and I’ve had to also give a few in return too! 😉

JD will be out of town on a business trip until Thursday night, but he made sure things were taken care before he left…he stocked the fridge with everything I need so I can focus on editing and making sure my business is staying on track, cleaned every room (sans the bathroom…he doesn’t “do toilets”), and he rubbed my feet last night while I indulged in reality tv (just kidding mom and dad…I totally just watch National Geographic and the History Channel!). To make things even better, our amazing dog Polo gets a little action too…the two of us will lay on our backs and get a massage simultaneously. I promise, I’m not the Dog Whisperer or anything, but I can hear Polo saying Ahhhhh.

So, yes, Dorothy had Toto and they made their way to visit the Wizard of Oz. And, well, I have Polo and we somehow managed to find our way to the Wizard of Ahhhhs too! 🙂

This is Polo hiding in our closet…whenever JD leaves, Polo becomes melancholy and will find solace by JD’s ties…I think it’s cute! 😀
