Weekend Reading

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

Weekend greetings! At last the kids are back to school, we’ve settled into a schedule and new teachers and bought school supplies, things feel back to normal again. It’s a collective feeling among all the parents I’ve encountered this week :) As the summer blooms fade and the calendar turns, I’m finally feeling ready for fall.

Weekend Reading

Friday, August 7th, 2015

It’s almost time for school to start, only ten days left of summer. I always have mixed feelings about that this time of year. I love these lazier days and the warmer weather, I’m not quite ready to let them go but I’m forced to. The family is off with Matt on their annual camping weekend which leaves me three days by myself, it’s their tradition. I think I’ll take myself out to the movies and do some leisurely window shopping while they’re away.

I took a quick trip to Las Vegas earlier this week, I was in and out in 2 ½ days, and while I was there I photographed the kitchen remodel. It’s such an amazing transformation! I’ll go through all the photos and write up the story soon. Meanwhile…
