The weekly news...

I've been TRYING to be a good girl and blog once a week. Not sure how well it's going for me.
I came to admit that I've been slacking lately on my 365 gallery. As much as I wanted to stick it out to the end I don't think I can. I love hearing from so many of you who said you followed along. That alone took me through the winter and now that spring is here many more things have taken priority. I'll get what I have on my CF cards uploaded and posted soon. I thought about 'cheating' to catch up, my days are SO routine I was boring myself. Though I thought about just using an image a day instead of a photo of me a day.

In other news, I'm working on collections for maternity/newborn/first year and seniors! I think offering collections will help guide you in ordering photos. It's hard to know what you want or what you need. Wall gallery placement ideas will also be something to look forward too. Lots of things going on, just no time to get them out there!

The new website is currently on hold but should be finished by summer. Keep your eyes peeled!

Lastly, heathercicione.com is no longer the domain to my site. It is www.heathercicionephotography.com. A while back I mentioned how my domain expired and went into redemption, yadda, yadda, yadda. WELL, it seems that it was auctioned off and since it was getting a lot of hits (GO ME!) someone decided they would buy it and put their advertisements on there. Honestly I could see if my name was common, ya know?

Speaking of which I just want to put out there the correct pronunciation of my last name. It gets butchered constantly (since my maiden name is DiMarsico I'm used to the butchering of the last name). For those of you who are not so familiar with the Italian language I will give you a quick lesson. Italian CI is like the English CH, just as the Italian CH is like the English K. Thas said, how would you pronounce CI CIO NE? Correct, CHI-CHO-KNEE. or as my father in law says 'CHI CHON'
Now who can pronounce Bruschetta?

I'll miss your 365, but I'm right there with you. I just couldn't do it anymore. I have unbelievable respect for everyone who makes it through the whole thing, but it wasn't for me! I've decided to do a 52 week project instead - a self portrait a week. Maybe something like that might work for you?

I will be sad to see the 365 end, hell it is the only way I feel like I know what is going on with you. However I TOTALLY understand. Maybe still post random pics every now and then (because so many of us like to have a sneak peak inside your beautiful family)

~Kristin of Finnish decent so my lesson to you is "SAUNA" pronounced SOW-NA not SAW-NA. that is all for now.....

Whoa! New color, eh? =) I'm sorry about your domain - those sneaky buggers. But I think it will work fine with the new one! Bummer about the 365s... I absolutely have loved following yours. But life gets in the way. And if it's a chore, it's not fun. I see no shame in doing a more relaxed version. =)

And thanks for the pronunciation guide! I was saying "Sissy-ohn" in my head. I'm a little Irish girl with absolutely NO Italian in me. (Is it Broo-sketta?) =)
