hi friends! i wanted to drop in real quick & explain my little absence. the last week has been busy busy busy.
i turned 48 on april fools day which i always think is sorta a waste of a good birth “date” as i’m not a prankster and never remember the punch line to any jokes. but nonetheless. it’s so weird to inch on up in years because truth be told, i feel like i’m 36. forever. in fact in my head i’m always gonna be 36. how does that sound?
dan & i celerated our 15th anniversary in a whirlwind. i spent the day taking brinkley on his longest card ride ever. savannah graciously offered to keep him while we took a little trip. she has some sweet pics of their time together & truth be told, he had the adventure of his life! i’ll share more of that later.
the rest of us packed up & left early friday morning to head down to seaside. caroline has been cheering on a travel squad & they competed in that area earlier this week. it’s been such a treat to watch her compete but i gotta tell ya, allstar competitive cheerleading is quite the gig. let’s just say, it has made for interesting people watching.more on that later.
we were only set to be there for 3 1/2 days. 2 of which the forecast was horrible, severe thunderstorms. thankfully it wasn’t near as bad as predicted and we had a great time. we left yesterday on what i am CERTAIN was the most glorious day ever. 70 degrees. no humidity. slight breeze and only a few picturesque white clouds in a radiant blue sky. whether i’m there for four days or if i were to be able to be there for four months, i’d honestly never be ready to hit the road.
it’s doubtful we’ll head back this summer which made it even more bittersweet to be there. but i am totally grateful for any time at all on my little piece of heaven.
we rolled in late last night & i was up and at ‘em early this morning photographing madison’s best friends from 1st grade–triplets that have grown into beautiful young women. i’m heading out in the morning to spend a couple days with my precious friend edie girl. i may or may not come home from there because she’s promised we’re hanging out on her porch…with hank the dog.
alrighty ya’ll, be back soon!
