Just a little catch up for ya.

12.10.2012 has been going at a million miles a minute lately. Sorry for the lack of posts last week...but this lady was a busy, busy bee. This week is going to me no different, but I'm not complaining. I'm working on getting all of my photo sessions completed, weddings completed, working for Hey, Sweet Pea, networking events/parties, squeezing in lunches with old friends, and getting ready for my trip to Santa Barbara on Friday. I'm literally anxious just thinking about all that needs to be done before I leave. SO, this blog will probably be a little neglected for the week. I will try to catch up on photo sessions and such. Aye aye aye.

OH, and guess what. I still haven't done ANY Christmas shopping.

PA-thetic. It hasn't helped that it has been 80 degrees here in Austin. Getting in the Christmas spirit has been hard this year. I don't know why...but I blame it on the weather. Is it me or does this year feel different than most? I guess I've just been too stressed out beyond belief. I'm going to try and focus on getting caught up so I can breathe and maybe go look at Christmas lights with DDHP. Can I just say though... Owning your own business is not easy. Just has to be said. Mk!

Anywho, I hope that you guys had an awesome weekend! Elise and Scott (Hey, Sweet Pea) came in last Wednesday and stayed til' Sunday. I also had the chance to partake in the Color Me Rad 5K on Saturday and that was SO much fun! Other than that, it's been work, work, work!

 Workin' it. ;)

Make this week count, y'all. Knock out those to-do lists. Smile. Breathe. Relax. Focus. I will try to take my own advice too! :) AND to all you other photog's out there...YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Sending y'all a big Texas hug! XOXOXO~ Happy December 10th! :)
