Three Things

I have some announcements to make.  It totally doesn’t make for good blog reading, but hopefully it will be informative and help you find other good things.

First of all, I am very excited to announce that I have launched my photography company O La La! Photography by Laura O’Rourke.  I will be primarily doing photography in the Halifax, Nova Scotia area.  Between now and March there are some really excellent Promos going on as a way to celebrate the launch, so be sure to check them out, especially if you’re looking for a photographer.  “Like” it on Facebook to stay in the loop and to have an upper hand on future promotions or giveaways.
Secondly, I currently have a photo in a competition to win a photoshoot of my own.  When your family consists of photographers, there are lots of pictures of babies, of other couples and other families.  But I never have a nice photo of my family, all together, or of just Dan and I.  So I would really like to win this. In order to win, my photos needs to receive the most “likes”.  If you head on over to Pam Mccready Photography and add her as a friend, you can vote on the pictures.  (Of course, my picture is a hilarious New Years photo of Cameron).  Please, please PLEASE vote!
(Also, if you live in the Annapolis Valley, Pam McCready is an excellent photographer!)
And FINALLY, I have a suggestion for a blog that I think is going to be really great.  My sister just started a blog called The Rookie Wife where she plans to document her time as a newlywed struggling to live with this guy she married.  I’m really sure that hilarity will ensue, especially if you know my brother-in-law, who always seems to have one foot or the other in his mouth.  So go follow her and leave her a comment.  Those who blog know all about the constant struggle to find your worth when you’re not sure if anyone is reading or cares.  Comments are a blogger’s best friend and a real boost for new bloggers.  So go read.  Follow.  Comment.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.
