Back in the groove

I hate coming back from vacation. Don't get me wrong - I don't hate it enough to stop GOING on vacations, but still it's a pain. I just finally got my carry on unpacked and put away and I've been stepping over my still-packed suitcase for the last week hoping that - SOMEHOW - it will magically clean itself out and put itself away. Sigh. certainly wouldn't want to give up on vacations. Especially girls weekends. We had so much fun....laughed so hard...stayed up till the wee hours of the morning (with two pregnant girls, might I add).....and didn't bother sleeping in - afraid we might actually miss some of the fun.

So - to my girls - truly some of my closest and dearest friends....I had a BLAST. So, so, so much fun. And, I can't wait for next year.... ILYS!****************
Before I delve back into some session images, I wanted to tell you what I've been entranced with for the last short while. The Twilight Series has completely captured my attention. On a recommendation of a friend (and one of the eight fabulous girls pictured above), I grabbed the first book in this series on a whim the day before I left for my trip. I was more engrossed in my People magazine at first, however, than to start reading the book right away. I did manage to delve in on Tuesday on my way home though. By Wednesday night I was finished. With this 500 page book. Meanwhile, sensing the end was near - Wednesday afternoon I frantically purchased the other two in this series from Amazon and impatiently waited their arrival. Since I was so entranced in this book, I started it over - Thursday morning - and was finished, once again, on Friday. Much to my surprise and delight, my order arrived late Friday afternoon. I finished both the remaining books - 500-600 pages each - by Sunday. Ummm.....yeah. You could say it's a good read.

I do have to warn you, though....these books are addictive. HIGHLY addictive. So much so that I've read through the trilogy yet another time and have started again this morning on the first book. You might say I have a problem. :)

But, if you like to read (or are like me and you loveD to read - before life brought you children and housework and responsibilities) buy these books. I promise you won't be disappointed. I will caution you - you may want to wait to get this trilogy until the last week in July....cause, I have no doubt you will fly through them at the speed I did and then you will only have to wait a very short amount of time for the fourth - and final - book in this series to come out (set for August 2nd, I believe).


So, enough of my Public Service Announcement on those!! I am already back at work, proofing sessions as we speak. I hope to share some of these with you in the next coming weeks, but my schedule - as it does in the summer - is full and my time will be sparse! For those that e-mailed to book a session for July, August or September, I believe all e-mails have been responded to so if you haven't received a response, please contact me again.

For those that didn't e-mail but are interested in a session, please contact as soon as you are able. July is nearly full and August is close behind. Just a reminder that mid-September will be the cutoff for 2008 Sessions. Regular sessions will resume at the first of next year.
