Happy Memorial Day!

Hi loves! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your Memorial Day! I was so wiped out from weeks and weeks of go-go-going that yesterday when I got home from a family session that ended in torrential downpours… I laid down in bed and slept for almost 4 hours! (*note* – I never nap, so you know I was tired!) Then James and I woke up, ate some sushi, watched a couple episodes of Season 3 of Dexter (I know, I know, we’re so behind) and went back to bed by 9:30pm. You heard me right. I’m not sure the last time I went to bed that early! I just could. not. think. of doing anything else but sleeping.

But, do you know what that means? That means today I woke up bright and early, feeling completely refreshed and ready to go!



So today will consist of rollerblading on Lake Shore path (ASAP, before it gets too nuts over there… it is supposed to be 90 degrees today, after all!), hanging out with James, tag-team-cleaning our apartment, giving Phoenix a bath, and catching up on some editing I need to finish up!

I hope you all are also having a wonderful Memorial Day with your loved ones, and I’ll see you guys later this week with all the goodies I have coming your way – more adorable babies, families, a proposal, and an engagement session! Yay! 🙂


Until then, enjoy this photo I found buried in the depths of my hard drive, back from the first Memorial Day James and I spent together in 2007 … 2 months after meeting: (Don’t we look so young?! Weird. ha ha)
