How quickly

Things change pretty fast around here!  You saw the pictures from yesterday morning right?  Well this was yesterday afternoon!  Mid 40s, breezy, SUNNY! No snow left on the ground.  Crazy.  My son and I went out for a quick photo shoot about 4:00 yesterday and got a few cute ones!  There are always so many unexpected great photographs when he is my photographer, and he loves to set the timer and run into the frame with me!  He likes to make funny faces and hand gestures.  Its classic.  That one of me crouching was a surprise while I was trying to help him with a setting.  He was checking his aperture and f stops.  Just joking.

Another new change,  My clinic is closing up.  For good.  Hope and Gumption do not always trump reality.  But it makes my choices very easy for me.  I have been working on my business plan for expanding my Etsy shop (I have not added to it for about a month since I have had some plans simmering on the back burner) and I have some great new plans for the blog as well.  I love how being ready for transition welcomes it right in sometimes.  

One more really quick question,  Is anyone going to Coachella?  :D

oo love your dress, I was wondering when your adorable son was going to pop back into these photos, nice to see him again. cute star wars shirt haha

sorry about the clinic closing, as much as I know you loved your old job and really helped people, maybe now it is good to move on and do something for yourself via this blog and etsy shop. I wish you the best of luck, Christina and look forward to hearing your future plans

the weather changed really quick... there wa sooooooooo much snow on your last post. and today? wonderful weather!

and most important, you've got very nice dress.

SarahAnn said...

Sure enough we're getting snow today and it'll be warm in Denver again by Friday. Weird western weather!

You and your son are so darling together--and I love the dress you're wearing.

I'm sorry to hear about the clinic--I know it was dear to you; but funny how things always work themselves out, hmm? Can't wait to see the next big steps!

Francine said...

Such cute photos. I love that your son is a little budding photographer! And the snow one day, dry ground and sun the next makes me giggle. We had that a couple of times here in CT over the past few months!

briannelee said...

Love this outfit! The dress is so pretty!

Sal said...

Wow, and I thought MN weather was changeable! Love those sassy shades, beautiful.

So sorry to hear about the clinic ... fingers crossed that something even better comes along for you soon.

Gorgeous photos, look at that lovely sky behind you! That dress is gorgeous and so is your hair!
Your son is adorable, what a little ham!

Alyson said...

So sorry to hear about the clinic. But with great sorrow also comes great opportunity. I am excited to see how you grow and how your etsy shop grows. It will be good, that's always one thing you can count on. :)

Desiree said...

OH my, look at that handsome little guy! He is so adorable.

I love this dress with the boots. So cute.

Panty Buns said...

You look gorgeous posing outside in that pretty blue dress, wide belt and high heeled boots and then looking straight into the camera in that fourth photo. Yes, that's an unbelievable change from the photos yesterday! The one thing that didn't change is that you look fantastic and relaxed posing outdoors! Your hair looks lovely too.

what i would have worn... said...

What bonkers weather! All we get here is hot and dry…
This dress is totally cute but it’s just no competition for your son. Seriously adorable!

Sorry to hear about the clinic- for you as well as all the people whose lives you could have touched. But time to focus on the future- isn’t it just exciting? Anything can happen!

Morgan said...

Sorry to hear about the clinic closing, it must be hard to walk away from something you truly enjoyed.
I am however excited to see what else you have up your sleeve!
I'm not going to Coachella. La Roux and She & Him are going to be there! So jealous.

Prefecta said...

You guys look just adorable!
I wish you a lot of luck, as you know when a door closes...
I'm looking forward seeing what's gonna happen!

luv, P

(PS. If you ever have a minute to take a quick look at my etsy and maybe even tell me what you think! I'd appreciate it a ton!)

Charlie said...

amanda said...

love this dress! and your glasses are so cool. how fun is it that your son likes to help out. mine always says, 'you're taking pictures AGAIN?' he's funny. anyway, super cute. and i love how things are working out for you right now. i know it's a hard reality with the clinic closing but it does open up so many opportunities for you and that's pretty cool.

Love the outfit...so polar opposite in terms of weather of your last post! :o) Sorry to hear about the clinic closing but I am also happy to hear that you are going to put your plans in action now as well! All the best!

Erin said...

what an awesome and abstract photog! sometimes life has a way of pushing you in a certain direction. hopefully there are still options in your area for those suffering from eating disorders.

Lea's Suitcase said...

Spring is HERE! and YAY for dresses with boots. Good luck on your new career adventure. I am a true believer in Good Risk :)

Jen said...

I cannot believe the difference! You were wearing a huge coat in the previous photo! Madness, I tell you!

You look nothing less than adorable, however. And I'm completely inspired by your career developments - I want more time to blog and develop my eBay business. I just need a little push! :)

Starr Crow said...

your outfit is so great. love the color of that dress on you. some of your faces remind me a lot of Maggie Gyllenhaal.

i'll be at the east coast coachella.. aka Bonnaroo.

caffeinerd said...

Love this whole look! The dress is great belted and with those boots.

merly k said...

My first comment was going to be: "do you live in narnia??" because for some reason the unbelievable landscape in your backgrounds made me think of this vast wonderland with fields of green, and grey majestic cliffs.. But then the more of think of it, I'm pretty sure I'm getting my children's books mixed up and I have no clue what literary reference I'm trying to conjure up.

In other news, I'm so happy you're not leaving blog land.. you would be getting way more texts since I still need a way to stalk you.. ;)

Jenn said...

Such a cute dress!

I totally, totally empathize with your statement about hope and gumption not trumping reality, my life is in a state of transition too at the moment. Sounds like you have things under control. I hope I get there, too!

That dress is just so beautiful, and your son is such a cutie.

Good luck with the transition- I know whatever you do you'll give your all so I have no doubts it will work out for the best.

Sarah K. said...

aww, these are so CUTE! you have an adorable little boy, you two are so sweet together.

and omg, I would love to go to coachella! who knows, maybe I'll get a goo paying job after graduation and I can save up and finally go!!

anyways, good luck with everything!

Sarah K. said...

oops, nevermind... it's sooner than I thought. maybe next year?

myedit said...

Haha, these are cute and funny pics.
I'm curious to see what you all come up with for Etsy and your blog... when people make decisions in their own lives, it always makes me feel antsy to figure my life out:)...blah, blah, blah...

Leproust Vintage said...

I am so sorry that your clinic is closing, but I am also excited to see what you have in store for your shop and blog. Funny how life changes so quickly isn't it?

You and your son look absolutely adorable! And the change in the weather is crazy!

barefootandvintage said...

your son is so cute! nothing better than a sweet little man to brighten EVERY day. it just keeps getting better...

excited to see what you have in store for your shop!

...and you know i'll at coachella. hope to see you!

Kimberellie said...

Your son is ADORABLE! Love the hair!! Oh, how fun! Can't wait until my baby is old enough to do photo shots with me! Oh, and I am so in love with your dress it isn't funny!

You look gorgeous. Great sunnies. This is all perfection.

Wonderful shots.

I'm sorry to hear that about your clinic. But since you've already made plans and know where to go next, I guess you'll be fine.

Enjoy the good weather.

Annebeth said...

haha the weather is really weird isn't it? Your kid is so cute! I wish I had a son to take my pictures, hahaha
It's great you have such a good bond with your son that you can share this with him! People should treasure this time in the life of their kids where they are like sponges, loving everything their parents do and loving without questioning.

also adore that dress and you as a person, I'm sure your etsy plan is going to work like a charm! you have such a huge following already! Sorry about the clinic, but you know what they say: when god closes one door, he opens a window. I'm not particularly religious, but I believe that in the end, everything works out. You just have to grab every chance you get!

Corie said...

Christina, I'm sure you know that some things happen for a reason (as depressing as it sounds). You should see another door open up soon...

However, I love the look. And, your son is adorable!

Jen said...

I will for sure be at coachella...4th year now. Camping all the way, will you be there?

princesspolitico said...

aaawww!!! the last photo is my favorite from this post... your son is absolutely beautiful... i'm loving the details of this post - your dress is beyond cute, especially with your belt and heeled boots. your hair is getting so long, by the way...

xo.

Adorable photos! I love this dress and the way you styled it.

So excited to see the changes with your blog/Etsy.

I'd love to go to Coachella (definitely the best summer line-up in my opinion) but I can't afford it :( siiiiigh. Are you going?

closet365 said...

This is such a beautiful photo shoot. You look so lovely and happy and I love the photos with your son! Adorable.

Best of luck with everything. I can't wait so see what's comin'!

Tracy said...

I am loving this outfit! and I love that your son does photo shoots with you! I have had child photographers many a time, and they can get some really great shots! I enjoy looking for photo locations and going there with kiddos--one recent one ended up with a long stay at a playground, so the on location shoot was beneficial to my son and daughter as well as to me. Fun stuff and I love your pictures! I'm adding you to my blogroll--your blog is super inspiring to me as a new fashion blogger :D
