:: Catch Up ::

Hello Lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful and family filled Thanksgiving weekend.....I obviously survived my first show of the season with Cranberry Creek but I think it'll be a few more days before I'm fully recovered. The weekend had a particular high note when half way through my third eleven hour day (and first break in five hours) my dear husband suddenly appeared. His family had been secretly planning to have him come work the last two days of the show. We also got to have the hotel room to ourselves Saturday night as Trev's parents had gone to a birthday party. We got to my parents house (they were watching the baby) at around 9:30 Sunday night and this mamma wept tears of joy when I finally got to hold my princess again. Man, did I miss her. We had a really low key day today and just hung out together. A few errands, a little laundry and some tidying, a nap, a comfort food dinner and a walk to a friends house and lots of playing in between was just the ticket! My mom was working so I am going to *gulp* cook her a turkey dinner for her birthday on Friday night and I can't wait!

Today was the only down day I've got this week......tomorrow is (weather permitting) a walk with some fabulous mommies and then off to the mainland again for a 1-on-1 session with the very prestigious Jamie Delaine of Jamie Delaine Photography on Wednesday. I am nervous and excited and am looking forward to all this very talented girl can teach me.
The rest of the week holds bible study, shopping for a turkey dinner and then cooking a turkey dinner as well as a dance class, lunch with old friends and hosting a baby shower for a very special friend and her adorable daughter on Sunday.
Things are moving so fast around here but each day I am overwhelmed with thankfulness. It's true that absence makes the heart grow fonder and being home again after being away has deepened my love for my role as wife and SAHM and has again re-shifted my priorities and focus.
I'll try to get back on this week and update my photography blog with some of the shoots I've had in the past month and please feel free to pass along any advice or pointers on how to cook a turkey :)
Have a wonderful week friends!
