5-minute vacation, please!

For about 5 minutes, I'm going to breathe deeply, smell the warm salty air, and pretend I'm back on this black-sandy beach on Maui. I'm watching the boys play in the surf, find treasures, and wrestle with my husband. I'm taking photos that the boys will get to share with their children one day. My bones are warm, I'm relaxed and perfectly content. My to-do list has one item on it, and it's already marked off. Enjoy your day.

{ sigh }

Can I take 5 more minutes?

Catching a fleeting moment.

I have a dentist appointment today, and it reminded me of the time when Sam lost his first tooth. We'd been working on this stubborn thing for quite a while and daddy "helped" loosen up for the final extraction. I LOVE, love that I can see my son's emotion right there on his face. Incredulous. Wondrous. Fantastic.

Loose-Ends Monday

Spring Break was great, but I'm feeling like I have a TON of loose ends to tie up today! My To-Do list has 16 items at the moment, and I'm certain I've left off at least 10 more. Let's see how many I can cross off - starting with "Daily Blog Post"   Check!

I'm lovin' me some CHARACTER in the Studio!

I have so much fun when my boys spend a few minutes under the lights for me. Last Saturday night was no exception! I was testing the lights for Max's party later in the night - and broke out our goofy glasses. Sam chose the LOVE glasses... and hammed it up for one tickled mama!

A Growing Family...

I had so much fun sharing the morning with this family! 
Thanks for dropping by –  I can't wait to meet the little one!

It takes a village...

My good friend and admired colleague, Tambi Lane and I went today to Oasis Day Spa and the ever fantastic Annie Simmons created 2 masterpieces. I took a bit more work, as I went in for the full-hair transformation - and she came through (like she always does) with flying colors! I'm very lucky in that Miss Tambi Lane Photography captured my "after" shot. Isn't she fantastic?? Thanks Tambi!

What do you think my husband will say???

A few folks have asked how I feel after this makeover... 

Well. It has been a long 3-4 months of busy-ness, business, not feeling great, surgery, recovery, recovery, and working into feeling better oh so slowly. Finally, feeling better (thanks for asking), and while I still have my ups and downs (mostly dealing with what I can/can't eat and digestion stuff) - I am starting to feel like I am on the other side of my surgery. 

Today - an almost spontaneous day of pampering and playing in studio - was wonderful. I DO feel amazing, and while I've got a to-do list a mile long - I'm very excited to go home tonight, and show my husband that I can look sassy after a long, long winter. 

Although now, I've been told... I need to go shopping for smaller jeans.
