Lunch w J&M!!!

Ugh! Sorry we've fallen off the face of our blog lately, but that nasty flu bug that's been going around officially landed at the Marantz household and we've been out O' commission. Our official theory is that we got it from our buddy Steve. We think it crawled out of his house, jumped in his mini-Cooper and drove Italian Job style going mach-three with its hair on fire until it landed smack dab at our front door. You can see that right...


Anywho, Mary & I have been having a blast going all over the country meeting photographers, and we realized that in the past two and a half months we've been to over 20 states!! That's so crazy to think about! But it's been amazing and we've gotten to make so many awesome new friends this way. We actually have three whole weeks off at home before our workshop in Chicago and then we'll start back in with some West Coast stops on the tour. So with all this traveling, we realized that we haven't gotten to really connect with photographers in our own backyard in wayyy too long. So we decided to start "Lunches with J&M" (yea...we need a better title. Our fevered little brains just aren't working right now). We're going to have the first one on Monday, April 14th and it'll be a chance to just get together, talk shop, and ask us anything you want (so long as it's not "when are you having kids!" :-) Just shoot us a line at justin@justinmarantz.com if you want in on all the fun!

K, Chicken soup time.

I'm glad that Steve is the culprit and not yours truly! I was on the same flu schedule as Steve - his blog post was right in line with what I went through. I hope you feel better soon! Miss you bunches!

You know I may have given the flu to Steve but I am confident I got it from David Burke- he had 'just gotten over it' before coming to wppi! hmmmm.... I shared food with him at Tao!!

I may be able to make this fabulous Monday lunch as well... we'll see how I do after wedding number 2 on the 12th!

Looks like I got most of the eastern seaboard sick. I blame Carla for my sickness so I guess Carla ( is the root of the problem. Wait didn't she get it from Burke? So....Uhhh...wasn't Justin sick going into the trip? I'm so confused!
