Weight lifted off my shoulders.

Greg declared a couple of weeks ago that we must take a drive up Hobble Creek Canyon and see how beautiful the golf course was there. So on a rare October evening I didn’t have a photo session or Young Women’s(church stuff) to attend to we took that drive. And as you can see, those leaves on the golf course did not disappoint. Lydia loved throwing them around and stomping in them and Hazel loved picking them up and trying to stick them in her mouth.

This fall has been nothing short of crazy.  I have done more photo sessions this fall than ever before, trained and ran a half marathon, was in charge of a huge Young Women’s activity, and had a nursing baby all along the way.  Whew!  But guess what?  That huge Young Women’s activity was last night(Young Women’s in Excellence) and with the cold weather now here, my life has gotten a loooooootttttttttt easier.  I practically came in the door dancing last night I was so excited the night was over with and, most importantly, that it was a success!  For months I had this night on my mind hoping it would come together and it did.  Such a huge weight off of my shoulders!  I kissed each family member a million times last night telling them thank you for bearing with me through this crazy busy fall.  I hope that I don’t sound like I am complaining.  What I want to express is quite the opposite.  I love all these things in my life that make me busy.  The photography, the running, the Gospel, and being a wife and mother.  It just happened to all collide in a couple of months time where everything was full speed ahead.

But now!  Now!  I get to decorate for Christmas.  Actually keep my house clean.  Spend more time with my husband and daughters.  And perhaps get more sleep?!  First, I have many more pretty images to send off to people and then enjoy the Christmas season.  Sounds amazing.
