wide open arms....


so tomorrow we fly into june
~are you ready~
~
i've been working on a little something that i want to share with all of you
~
most of you know that i have a little home for my portrait photography
but 
recently i wasn't loving it and holding it the way that i should 
so
after a long talk with cups of hot tea and chocolate cookies
we parted, knowing that we will both always hold soft spots for each other
~
"be yourself" 
are two powerful words that have somehow magically attached themselves to my heart 
~with help from of all of you~
and 
i really felt it was time to embrace them with my arms wide open
~
so the ruby luna photography that you used to know 
is now 
~
you know how these past weeks i've been bad mouthing blogger along with many of you. well i have to tell you something. blogger did something this weekend that made me stand up and cheer. when i decided to change photography blogs, i had to export and import ruby luna into the new space. well let me tell you something. blogger makes this so incredibly easy to do. i was prepared for a headache and some swearing mixed with some butt kicking, but honestly it took me less than 10 minutes and wha-la, all of my blogs posts were moved just like someone had waved a magic wand. 
now granted, my followers didn't get moved over, but i've learned to control my expectations when it comes to blogger. so i hope that if you followed me before, you'll want to follow me again.
~
so the best part of all of this, is that if any of you were thinking about exporting and importing to a new space and were scared to death to try it, i can help you with it.
~
now
onto a new note that has nothing to do with blogging
~
have any of you seen the movie "easy A" on dvd or hbo/showtime. well, i just recently watched it and i have to tell you that i have a huge crush on stanley tucci. 
i've always loved him in any movie he's been in, but i really loved him in this. and the best part, is that this movie is really good and funny and sweet. i think you'll like it.
~
i'll be going now and spending the whole day all confused and backwards, while i believe that it's monday even though i know it's tuesday. 
doesn't it feel like a monday to you, too, or am i alone on this one.

  5. Congratulations on effortlessly moving Ruby Luna's posts to their new location.
    Last Friday Blogger ate a long post I had spent much time on, so I have to say I am still harbouring a grudge.

    I am so happy to see you back :-)

  6. That is an unbelievable shot!!! Yup. Thought it was Monday until I realized everyone has the garbage out because it's Tuesday. Aargh!
    I'm heading over to your new site now!

  7. I did that back when I changed from Elemental My Dear to Jillsy Girl and yes, it's quite easy! I remember a couple of things got a little screwy, but it wasn't much to fix.

    Great bird capture you got there! And, yes, it definitely feels like Monday!

    Listen to this! My work verification word for this comment is "bless"! I think that is the first real word I've ever received and such a good one for this post! :-)

  8. Oh, that is good to hear. I've been hesitating to switch over my url to another and the work that it may entail. Glad to hear it went so well!

    Great photo!!!

  13. wahoo on that shot!
    I'm glad you're feeling better about Blogger. They do a remarkable service for us.
    BTW, so far I've never got a real word on verification, but I phonetically make them words to make it easier for me to type them. :)

  14. great bird shot .. i am confused, I thought you left blogger ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. First of all, congratulations on such a perfectly named new blog! And good to hear nice blogger words! (I've said a few not-so-nice lately!)

    Some people have mental love affairs with people like Harrison Ford. Mine is with Stanley Tucci -- but I haven't seen this so guess what's on the list!

  16. Truly ready for June and some warmer weather. Great shot as always, and congrats on the changes you have made to nourish your soul and make it right.

  17. Hard to believe that is Tuesday nevermind June!

    I have been trying very hard not to complain too much about all the trouble Blogger has been giving the past week or so seeing how I don't pay a cent for it...but is sure nice that today I can easily comment on blogs again! Love your new blog name:)

  18. Congratulations on the new start! And what an amazing photograph of that bird. (Yes, I've felt it was Monday all day!)

  19. You are most definitely NOT ON YOUR OWN. This is Monday masquerading as Tuesday...

    I love that photo...it speaks to me on so me levels...after reading your post...it is PERFECT!

    Good luck, lady!

  20. Wait...it's not Wednesday?

  21. No, to me it felt like Tuesday so hopefully by Friday it will feel like Thursday and then it will be a surprise when it's the weekend.

    or not.

    Thanks for the movie suggestion. I love Stanley Tucci, too.

  22. holy crap! how did you get that shot.... you are amazing! glad something that you thought was going to be the end of you ended up being not quite so bad!! that is kind of like finding a 20$ stuck in your winter coat pocket from the year before :)

  23. Woot woot for bringing all your parts together, lovely one! Glad too that no headaches were involved.
    I love Stanley Tucci also and yes, he was one cool dad in Easy A. I loved him in "a midsummer nights dream" where he plays puck too. A talented guy!
    Feeling much better myself other than a kind of swollen and numb tongue. Feels like I have a dead dish in my mouth a little. That may take a while but the rest of the healing is going well. Summer helps! :-)

  26. Hey, you. I feel like I have been away for so very long. First there was all the commenting trouble I was having. Then, the crazy end of school fuss. now, it's officially summer and I am teaching summer school this year. What on Earth is wrong with me??!??!!?? Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I've missed you. Hello, friend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, I have a hard enough time keeping track of the days in a normal week... plus a LOT to get done in this one!

    I love Stanley Tucci, my favorite is Julie and Julia.

    Off to check out your new digs!
