Seriously, what a dreary weekend we had 'round these parts indeed.
BUT, before I get into depressing weather mode, here are a few snaps of Rosie in her SLEEVELESS rainbow Mitz dress from Friday when it was glorious and warm out.
Holding onto those for warmth through today.
Saturday morning I was able to get in my ONLY session of the weekend before it started to pour and then dropped to cold temps...so that was great. I mean, I am SO GLAD we got those pics in, but kinda a hassle now to reschedule all of these other sessions! This is definitely not mid-April weather AT ALL! GAH!
I'm sure you saw my c-section post from Friday...but yes, still honoring that it is cesarean awareness month and I am SO EMPOWERED by my birth stories and birth experience with a c-section! I feel like I could go on a speaking circuit talking about how much that experience means to me! But I'll spare you guys :)
After my shoot Saturday morning Robyn and I went and visited one of my former students who's in the hospital battling a LOT. Robyn is incredible and I've spent no shortage of time talking about her but Kristen, my goodness, this is the strongest gal I have EVER met. What she's been battling for the past few years and the strength she's had to endure all that she has is incredible. Robyn sent her a TinySuperheroes cape a month ago before her big surgery at the Mayo Clinic and on Saturday they got to meet for the first time in person! It was one of the best mornings I've had in a while watching these two chat and interact!
The big kids went to the lake this past weekend with Kate, so this 'bout sums up what the rest of us did...Mike slept, we played...kind of :) Did some errands in there too!
Annie girl and I had a fun little Saturday, clearly :)
On Sunday morning we decided to drive down to pick up the kiddos since my shoots got postponed and to save KiKi from making a trek back up here!
Aren't they cuties??!? P and R wanted to run around in the field before we left so duh, had to let them! And I had my camera with me too (duh. #always) so I snapped some pics of them before we jaunted back home.
Patrick and I hit up the grocery store (for ingredients for this DELICIOUSLY AMAZING recipe I blogged about earlier, in case you missed it) while everyone napped and then gave him a fresh new buzz once we got home, per his request. He was DYING over his pics ^^ and demanded I post them on 'the instagrams' to have others laugh at too. DONE.
Anyways, this is a crazy busy week -- shoots nearly every single night and then my last round of spring minis on Saturday! Fingers and toes crossed the current 'overcast and 60' forecast doesn't change to rain!! EEEKKKK! And if anyone is reading this that usually does my minis, in the fall I think I'm only going to be doing one weekend of fall minis and then maybe a November weekend of Christmas ones...trying to just wean myself down to one mini weekend (because it is a TON of prep work and work during that actual day to do!) per season. We'll see if I stick to that!
Welp, that's all I've got for you on this Monday! Have a good one friends!!!
