What can I say in my defense? But that it's summer! Not just any summer, it's summer in Alaska. And I know all to well now, being it's our third summer here, that it's a season that goes in a blink of an eye. So, I'm making the most of it. So when it comes to being home and surfing on the web, I'm sorry to say, it's last on the list. I do stay on the computer to edit photos though but that's about it.
June is pretty much over and so far the summer of 2007 has been amazing in the Land of the Midnight Sun! There is something about summer, it could be because schools are out, flowers are blooming, the sun shines it's warmth... but our smiles deepen, our laughter increases, and our hearts are open! It's just a time to enjoy life's riches rather than having the riches of life, bring us happiness. It's priceless.
I've been enjoying time with the kiddo's. This weekend, the hubby and his friends are out for camping/fishing expedition on a Halibut Charter! I'm anxious to see how he handled the sea life! As for me, spending some girly time with my only girl! Today she and I went to the mall, dressed a like, (Anna's cute idea from Old Navy, we bought our girl's these sun dresses, while we bought the largest kid's size for us!) I can't tell you how many people, stopped to tell us how cute we looked to be dressed alike. And Isabel says, "Mommy, why all the people looking at us, cause you copy me, mommy?" LOL, yes I'm copying you! We bought Ella some gifts at the mall. She was so adamant about getting her clothes and toys! (After all, she adores Ms. Ella) I enjoyed just watching her pick something they both would like! She had her one hand on her hip, head tilted to the side, and one eyebrow up, thinking and wondering if Ella would like this outfit or that outfit! (I wish I had a camera! Note to self, invest in a little camera!)
I've also been busy with shoots! I'm excited and nervous! But working at our Local Scrapbook Store has boosts up my clientèle list! Next week alone, I have 4 photo shoots! Like I said, nervous and excited! July seems like it will be a jam packed month with CHA around the corner, I can't wait! I would LOVE to meet anyone who is going!!! Let me know!
Until then, here are some snapshots from a recent shoot:
