July

July is officially getting crazy. It is possible I bit off a little more than I can chew. Or should chew. But damnit, I will chew. All of it. (What?)

Anyways.

I spent the last four days up in northern California, catching up with friends in SF, shooting a beautiful wedding, having a lazy day of recovery in our hotel room, and acting out my inner Julie Andrews circa: The Sound of Music's "The Hills Are Alive" in Half Moon Bay.
We got back Sunday night and now I'm focusing solely on the extremely busy few weeks ahead of me. In addition to two Renegade Craft Fairs (come see me in L.A. July 20th-21st, and S.F. July 27th-28th!), I have a feature coming up that I now am also preparing for. Practical Jules almost almost considered turning the opportunity down, but I kicked her to the curb. I can handle it.

I also have a bit of a revamp idea that I am going back and forth on. Making business decisions is so hard for me. I have always been an indecisive pain in the ass (just ask any guy I've ever dated) but when it comes to my business it's on a whole different level. It's not that I am scared of change but I guess I'm scared that JAA fans will be scared of change. I'm scared that what I think may be a good move, may be a disappointing move to others. I am trying to stop worrying so much about that, and to focus more on the big picture.  I have to do what I think is necessary to reach my big goals for the future.

How is your July looking? Full of business? Or taking advantage of summer time? (If so, can I live vicariously through you as I run around like a stress case for the next three weeks?)
