My mom and me at the Olympic Training Center
      Colorado Springs
      January 22, 2010

      ‘ve been neglecting my blog lately, but it’s been for a good reason: I’m in the middle of my slowest month of the year, and enjoying it. Every year I work hard through November and December to prepare holiday orders, and my schedule picks up again after Valentine’s Day. That leaves me with January to catch up with friends, family, exercise, hobbies, and sleep. I love the seasonal nature of my job.

      Last week my mother came to Colorado Springs to visit. We had a relaxing week together, spending most of our time chatting over coffee, watching girly TV shows, and going out to eat. On Friday, Mike and I took her to the Olympic Training Center for a tour. I can’t believe we’d never been there before! It was fascinating to get a glimpse into the world of Olympic athletes. I had no idea that some of them live there for a decade or more!

      The week before, Mike and I went to Nashville for the annual convention of the Digital Wedding Forum. We explored the city, spent time with friends, and took zero photographs. It must sound ironic not to bring a camera to a photography convention, but occasionally I need to spend time socializing at parties instead of working at them, and exploring a new place without seeing it through a camera lens. It invigorates me and helps me to see the world differently.Give me a couple more weeks, and I’ll be missing weddings desperately. For now, I’m loving my down time.It’s been several weeks since I picked up any camera other than my point-and-shoot or my iPhone. Here are some snapshots from our trip to the Olympic Center, and one from Breckenridge. I don’t normally post personal snapshots here on my blog, so if you’re interested in seeing them, feel free to add me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/charlotte.geary


      Mike and I pretended to share the gold medal platform…


      … but really we tried to throw each other off.


      Of course our favorite way to spend the winter is skiing. Here we are on Peak 7 at Breckenridge. Colorado is a great place to have free time in the winter!

      Going To Vancouver??

      If you do, I’ll bet your photos of Olympic action will be better than anything in Sports Illustrated!

      There can be only ONE! XD
