Outfit: Confetti Day

On a sunny day in May 2021, Nathan Adhikari and I rented a car and made our way out to Whilmette, Illinois in Chicagoland and we had such a fun day shooting two looks in the park and at the beach. We have been friends now over 10 years and his influence on my life has been larger than I could have ever imagined. Thank you, Nathan and Sarah for including me in your life.. I am humbled by your generosity and kindness! 
If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you might know I name my outfits after some of my favorite songs. This outfit is named Confetti Day after a song by Hot Chocolate. I bought the whole LP a year ago and have loved the band ever since.
Much has changed in my life in the last couple of years since the pandemic.. I started attending college (again!) for Diagnostic Ultrasound and now I currently work for the last two years at Barnes Jewish Hospital in the abdomen and small parts department and I love it. I have completely changed my life and added more talents to my arsenal. I still love arranging flowers, styling fashion shoots, photography, sewing and painting. I find myself yearning to tackle more of these adventures now that I have broken into the healthcare world, but I don't see myself ever stopping ultrasound. What a cool job to investigate the pathology or lack thereof of humans' bodies. I love being able to answer the question of why someone has pain. It is so satisfying to be useful in this way to people. I truly love what I do and I love that I have all these creative hobbies from going to "finishing school" I like to call it. LOL
