A Day in the Life of a Photography Blogger – Day 23 – A Sad Day

Sharing is caring!

Today is a sad day.  I learned of the sudden and unexpected death of someone I cared about.

I met Lara Joy a couple of years ago, and although we lived in different cities and only saw each other in person a handful of times, I considered her a friend.

You can see Lara Joy’s obituary HERE.  We met at the Out of Chicago Photo Conference a couple of years ago.  Lara was a  rescuer of kitties, a champion of wild horses, and an amazing photographer, teacher, organizer, businesswoman, and all-around loving and good soul.

My heart is heavy knowing that I will not see photo updates of her kitties Carter, Clemmy, and Lucas, or see her amazing photos of wild horses in my regular social media feeds.

Lara Joy touched many lives.  I wonder if she knew how many.  Take a moment today to find someone who means something to you and tell them how you feel about them.  I wish I could tell Lara Joy just how much I enjoyed our chats.  I hope she knew.

Be sure and catch up on day 22 HERE

Today’s Highlights

Today I spent some time with my young friend at Holland Language Academy.  We have been working on some Diamond Dotz stickers and bracelets.  We have the most interesting conversations when working on a project like this one.

Now Tucker is home from school and we are watching an episode of Little House on the Prairie.  I was so excited when I found the entire series available on Amazon Prime Video.  I’m wondering if Tucker will make it through the whole series with me.  So far, he seems to be enjoying it.

The Evening Ahead…

This evening I have my Leadership Class.  I’ll be taking some photos for use on my new Instagram page for the Leadership School.  I also have some homework I haven’t finished yet, so time to get to work on that.  Signing out for today.

Thank you for reading!  I’ll see you tomorrow!
