It's a much needed break. I tend to underestimate myself, A LOT! Like, the photoshoot turned out to be jammed packed with people moving by the half hour until 8 pm both days! The work that needed to be done to show my clients their photographs. My calendar class that turned out to be a hit! Which I am so happy about! Not to mention all the cutting and preparation into that. And with little time I had at home and with family this past week.. I did a lot of journaling. At one point, I debated whether to pull over to the side of the road to write my thoughts down.
You know as a stay at home mom for 11+ years, I always wondered what it would be like to step out side of my four walls, into a whole new environment, out of my realm and out of my comfort zone. I often wondered if I could juggle work, kids, their extra curricular activities in between. And found it quite hard this week. I found out that I miss them.. I miss my family. I miss spending time with them and just being lazy all day. I miss watching our shows on tv, sleeping in, and keeping the house tidy! I know it's not like this everyday and I don't try to stretch myself all the time, but those times that I do, it makes for quite a ride! But it's those times that I can't wait to revert back to my comfy self, and it's those exact moments, that makes me feel so blessed for all things ordinary. And it's within those busy moments that make me realize that even though you have what you've always wanted and reached certain heights in your life, it's NOT worth it without the love of your family beside you. Cause at the end of the day, it's nice to come home!
The temperatures are in the 45's which is really good for Halloween night, it's always been snowing, freezing, or just too much ice and snow outside. But on this night, it's actually quite nice! I spent the day with Keri and her girls trick or treating over at the base hospital, which is nice and warm :)
And so I'm off.. my hubby's in charge of this house and the kids... and I just know he will do an awesome job! I promised to bring him along with me on my next trip to CHA in Anaheim in February! Until then, one trip at a time. I hope everyone has a great week!! Off to do some shopping, I hear the shopping is WAY better than Alaska :) Until then, I have updated my Photography Blog with just a few more pics! Enjoy!
