In the craziness that has surrounded these past two months I have emerged from it all with lots to share. I recently launched First Wife Studios, Ltd. (pics coming soon but for now check out #FirstWifeStudios on Instagram and @FirstWifeStudio on Twitter) which is a new 3,000 sq ft studio in Chai Wan, HK and it is busier than I ever could have hoped for. I’m shooting nearly everyday and in a whirlwind of sequins and flashing shutters seem to be managing it all just fine. Also, my son just turned one which is a huge accomplishment in my book. He has even grown larger, appears to be significantly smarter, and still has all his fingers attached so we are really succeeding over here (if you knew how much he gets into on a daily basis you would applaud these small triumphs too)! He slept through the night for the first time the night before his first birthday (that other time doesn’t count because he was hopped up on drugs form the doc appointment that day). My goal was to get him to accomplish this feat by his big numero uno bday and darn if he didn’t drag it out to the last bloody second. Over the past few weeks I have managed to get a few good nights sleep again and wow oh wow does it change ones clarity. You really do lose yourself when you haven’t gotten more than 3 ½ consecutive hours of sleep in 18 months. I’m starting to feel like my old self again… and just in time as I have my 31st birthday next month. Now to figure out what to wear to celebrate going “in to my 30’s” <insert emoji of eek face>.
