Life's been a little crazy the past week and a half. We took an unexpected trip north and I've been tripping on project due dates and lost in email responses the past few days since I've been home so I've completely forgotten to tell you my news... This coming Wednesday I'll be talking to the Business Practices in Photography class at Texas A&M Commerce.
