Where Am I?

I tell you, the last two weeks have been a bit of a blur. Now, I like to stay busy, but I also like some down time now and again. Guess that's what the lazy summer days will soon bring, but for now, I'm going full-blast in every direction.

Last Monday (week) I had to drive down to our corporate offices at the beach for a quarterly sales meeting, spent the night there, and came back. Then Wednesday, we went to the beach for Memorial weekend, came back Monday. Wednesday I had the awesome opportunity to take a ride on our corporate jet to an event I managed in Gettysburg, PA and came back last night just in time for my little guy's graduation from pre-school! They were so adorable singing their songs and each graduate had to say what they wanted to be when they grew up. Walker said, "A baseball player." No shocker there.





Today I'm headed to Charlotte to spend the night with my cousin and her family, then taking off to Columbia to photograph sweet Hudson's first birthday party! Erin from Blue-Eyed Bride asked me if I'd be interested several months ago and I'm excited about meeting her in person for the first time along with all of her precious family!

And, it doesn't stop there! Next weekend I'm directing the wedding of a dear friend. Mike is actually in the wedding and I've got to squeeze 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsman, a Jr bridesmaid, a flower girl and a ring bearer (not to mention bride, groom and preacher) in the front of a small baptist church. Wish me luck!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
