I know you know that there are big things a-brewing in Allison-Suter land. Beautiful things, exciting things, adventurous things! Today, I’m so excited to tell the world (or at least that little part of the world that reads my blog!) of our big, beautiful brilliant, life-changing plans!
29 sleeps from now, on December 15, 2011, we pack up our lives start a new adventure! Goodbye Toronto! Goodbye tax law! My relationships with Toronto, and with being a tax lawyer are both stories for another day. Suffice it to say: I’m ready.
I’m ready to be an entrepreneur. An “under taker”. A do-er of things. I’m going to be a wedding and lifestyle photographer; run a small creative and business business; learn basic programming skills; and after a bit of time, start a business or businesses with the hubs (who will also still be employed by his current employer).
On January 3, 2012 we get on a plane and fly to Buenos Aires! (Don’t worry, we aren’t doing any funky time travel – you know how I feel about time travel – we are spending the intervening 18 days in Alberta and California).
On January 7, 2012 we are shooting a wedding in Punta Del Este in Uruguay, and on January 10, 2012 we settle into a Palermo apartment for probably three months. I’m going to spend most of that period starting things. We hope to spend some of that period going to Antarctica on a last-minute trip! As the next steps of our plans unfurl, I’ll let you know what they are and where we are going to be.
I don’t know what direction this blog is going to go in with these big changes, but it will continue to be a collection of my random thoughts and musings about stuff I love and stuff I do! I will continue to run Allison Suter Photography (concentrating on bookings in the Vancouver market for next summer). We also may take up our travel blog again. Though what we are doing is something different than travelling. It’s going to be our life. I really hate the term “lifestyle design” (it sounds so snooty to me), but really, that’s sort of what we are striving for!
