As most of you know, I’ve had some big changes in my life recently (ie. getting married about 6 weeks ago), and taking a little time off game me moments to plan out for the upcoming year.  I’m expecting some big things in 2010, and I really wanted to push my own creative boundaries in the process.  In addition to just a business-perspective change and such, I thought it was about time to bring on a little bit of a new look.  For those of you who are reading this on facebook or in your favorite rss reader, then you probably haven’t noticed anything, but I re-tweaked my site for an bit of an updated new look!  Go there to check it out!

For starters, I’ve got a new color!  The color actually came when I started to furnish my new office (which I’ll post pics of soon), and the lime green just fell into place.  It’s that little burst of energy that I think I needed.

So the look is just the beginning of changes to come up from this time moving forward.  The other major thing you’ll notice is the new branding on my images.  You like?  I do!

Enough about branding, this past weekend, I had the pleasure of going on a ‘family vacation’ with my wife’s immediate family.  9 adults, 4 children, and a lakehouse in Wisconsin for the weekend was a great time for me to get acclimated with the family better, and for them to get used to me. There weren’t any huge activities planned out, which was good as things were pretty chill most of the weekend and I was able to catch a breather as well.

Most of our time was spent in the basement of the house, as there was table tennis, a billiards table, and foosball to keep us occupied for most of the time.  Here’s a little frame-by-frame of my intense battle with my father-in-law :)

The house was right on the lake, so we went down there a couple times for some fishing and a little water fun.  My father-in-law loves to fish, so he was out there early every morning, and I caught a few as well!  The house also had a paddle boat, so some of the family took the kids around the lake.  However, my wife’s team had a few issues and needed to get ‘rescued’, and you can see the a video clip below…

I’ve posted a handful more on my personal facebook page, so feel free to ‘friend’ me and check those out as well. All in all, a nice weekend with family, and a great escape.  I’m back at editing and getting ready for a busy October!  Thanks so much for all of your patience during this past month as we got settled into married life, but you’ll definitely be hearing more of me now!  :)
