The 411

Today, I am realizing just how great life is. I mean sure, there are always going to be bumps in the road, but overall..things are good. I am hoping to get back into blogging..I like to keep a record of things and one day I would like to put it all together in a book (at least the funny/exciting posts!)


So here is what has been going on..

  • I am still not working other than my photography business, but trust me that has kept me busy enough! October is booked with 3 weddings, a completely filled boudoir marathon, and many portrait sessions. I am truly enjoying every second of it. I could continue on and not get a full time job, but like I've said before I (we) want to save as much as we can for the future (I hear children aren't cheap!) and it'll be nice to be able to have a cushion.

  • There is a plus sign of being home..there are always vacuum lines in my carpet..and I LOVE vacuum lines. :-)

  • Since today was Oct 1 it's officially "Fall" to me. Today consisted of the yummy aroma of pumpkin spice candles lit in various places around the house.

  • Today also marks the first time in our married life that we sat down at the table to eat. Isn't that crazy? We've been married over a year! We like watching our favorite shows and eating at the same time..so the couch is where it happens. It almost felt like we were at a restaurant, except that I had to clean up afterwards! :-) I think we will try and keep that up a few times a week. It's nice to sit there with no distractions and just talk.

Oh girl!!! I love vacuum lines too. Nothing makes me happier than walking into a house that has been freshly vacuumed. :) Glad you are doing great and welcome back. :) XOXO

Great to hear from you again! I'm glad things are going so well with your business and I am wishing you lots of luck in finding a job.

We don't usually sit at our table either...only on special occasions But those are my very favorite!

I wondered in here because I liked your title!!!! Enjoy the nights at the table for dinner especially if you are going to have kids :) My husband and I have 4 children and we eat dinner at the table every night and say a prayer before we eat. When the kids were small it took so much effort and seemed to be a pain somedays but now that they are older and one has left for college they have thanked me over and over for the dinners at the table..... It is where we connected once a day!!!! Hearts and Hugs, Marie

I also love vaccum lines! I cannot believe I admitted that either!!

I love this optimism, everyone needs more of it these days.

My dh and I did not eat at the table until our first son was born. It was always on TV trays in the living room while watching TV.
