Macro Monday - {Tampa Bay Photographer}

Macro Mondays...I bet you thought I'd forgotten or given up on them it's been so long!  But I didn't.  This summer was crazy busy both personally and professionally.   At the beginning of this summer we decided to put our house on the market and to our surprise (and pleasure), we sold it!  Quickly, at that!  Although a blessing, it was incredibly time consuming.  We found a place to rent and had to pack (we did it ourselves), move (thank you friends that helped!) and I had to shoot as well...there were family sessions, a baptism and photos for a theatrical production and more!  I'll share more of those sessions in the coming weeks, but for now, I thought what better than to have my return Macro Monday post be of some of the new things we have in our current home...

Lots and lots of boxes, many of which are gone, but alas we still have boxes to unpack!

Can't have boxes without packaging for the breakables. 

We have a gas stove!  Never had one of those before and I won't lie, I was a little afraid of this, but it's been pretty cool. I am learning to adjust my cooking techniques because gas is so different than electric, but I'll get there.  My husband is in heaven because he's wanted a gas stove for years.

We have a pool and a hot tub!  While we've had houses with a pool before (military relocations have moved us into serval homes),  our last home did not and I didn't realize how much I missed it!   

The pool deck has pavers and the power of water has been felt on the ones nearest the roof line.  

The stone has worn away revealing the grave underneath.

There are some different landscaping plants here as well which will be fodder for future Macro Monday posts.  Very excited!



  1. being busy is a good thing as long as it's not a super stressful kind of busy. Good luck in your new home
