So what is your favorite thing about this time of year? I’m going to take a count…maybe I’ll even figure out how to add a poll to this post. My favorite thing about this time of year is that it is lighter tomorrow then it is today!!!! I don’t care how dark it is and I don’t care how cold it is, I just care that the light is going in the right direction!!
…..Ok, so that was the beginning of last Friday’s post. Yikes! My brother was coming to town and I had promised my husband and myself that they would get all of my attention for that week. I kept thinking, “Oh, but I’ll have time for at least blogging.” But this nagging feeling told me to just put it away and focus on my family, “Your business will still be here when you get back,” the nagging voice said. So I stopped my post midway and got every other have to thing done. Now here I am, and you guessed it, nothing changed while I was gone! haha, the joys of being a small business owner.
The most amazing thing has happened that I want to tell you about. On Christmas evening my brother and his wife got to town. We hung out and settled in and I was trying to get the kids to bed early so I could wrap presents (someone told me I was a procrastinator by doing this Christmas Eve but I just always plan to do it then because if I do it sooner and put the presents under the tree the kids would be tempted and would probably open them). Anyways, little did I know my brother, his wife, and my husband were all stalling me. They tricked me by misdirection and when I wasn’t looking my parents sat in the chair behind my Christmas tree! (video to come…my brother has it). They had been lying to me for months, as well as every other member of my family except my children. They had been flying for well over 24 hours from Alaska and had just arrived to show up under my tree!
Since it’s Tuesday here is your tip of the week. I find that when I take pictures of my family the quality is never as good technically speaking because I’m trying to be photographer, mom, wife, daughter and it’s a little too much. But what I’m learning is, it’s ok! The quality doesn’t matter all the time what really matter’s is capturing that moment the best you can and then loving it!
