Checking In Again

August 20, 2012

Oh my goodness, it’s been a long time since I’ve stopped in to this little corner of the internet.  Work and life have been busy and this seems to always fall to the bottom of the list.

Since I’ve last seen you, I’ve moved my space work into a new office/studio.  Finding a space, furnishing, decorating and getting settled into a new work routine has been fun but it’s also been time consuming.  It’s totally been worth it because I’m loving having a place to go, a place to work and stay organized.  There’s plenty of room for moms, babies and photography and it’s giving me a lot more time to devote to all of it now that I’m not spending hours a day in my car.

 

In addition to moving two businesses out of the house, we’ve also sent two kids out on their own.  Sam and Katie are settling into their new apartment, new jobs and a new college.  It’s a little strange still, not having them around but everyone’s adjusting.  Now to decide what to do with the empty bedrooms…

 

Finally, the entire family celebrated Christmas in August with a trip to Captiva Island.  With 11 of us it can seem a bit like a traveling circus at times but we all had a great time.  Cheers!

Weekend Getaway

March 29, 2012

A couple of babies so thoughtfully arrived before their due dates, giving me a one-weekend window to slip out of town.   Deciding where to go and what to do was the hard part.  A hotel room on a beach?  But which beach? A weekend in a city?  Which city? Sharing a fully-booked and crowded resort [...]

Impromptu Day Trip

March 17, 2012

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy and we’ve been feeling the strain.  A getaway was most definitely in order.  Since I’m still waiting on babies and can’t really leave town, we took a short little excursion to stop and well, smell the roses. After a little work this morning, we hit the road [...]

A Grand Afternoon Out

February 20, 2012

It’s not too often that we all get to go out together, especially for music, dancing and food. We were missing one but the rest of us had a grand time!
