Change of Venue

After almost a month of no posting, I am sure you would rather see some photos of the boys, but am going to switch gears tonight...

I was reading a magazine a month or so ago and came across a little tidbit that dealt with inability to think of conversation topics.  They were specifically referring to a date night with a significant other, and gave a list of topics to discuss over the various courses.  One of the questions was something along the lines of, "What would you do if you could change careers?"  That isn't exactly how they worded it, but it is close. 

I immediately thought of one career/job that I would want to try - Midwifery.  After reading a book called Midwives by Chris Bohjalian and watching "The Business of Being Born" a documentary by Ricki Lake, I became caught up in the more natural side of childbirth. 

Second on my list is Food Stylist.  I am amazed that this is actually a job, but it makes sense with the huge boom in the glamorousness of food.  I love food and presentation can make the appeal so much stronger.

Third would be photographer...I am not skilled in the photo snapping department, I do think that this requires a talent I may not possess, but to express life through a still frame can be so breathtaking.  I love The Pioneer Woman's photography section when she does her contests.  If you haven't ever clicked through these, there are some amazing photographs she showcases.

So, there you have it...What would you pick?

I would choose photographer as well or florist.

I think I would want to have a store full of pretty things. Mainly, because I have always thought it would be so fun to go to market and pick everything out!
Or perhaps party planner. I see so many fun, elaborate parties out in blog land. My sister is letting me live out this dream with Mason's birthday and I'm so excited about it all. The best part is she is doing a lot of the work and I just come up with the ideas. haha.

Some of the many include: event planner, personal finance counselor and professional organizer. I would also pick photography if I could make someone else edit the photos! :)
