madison is a rockstar helper.
she often times comes with me to my noonday shows
& is a huge help
she might come with me to a photoshoot
& help me check out lighting for a maternity session~
savannah came home from college & had her wisdom teeth removed.
i stood there in the office while she was in her drug induced semi-coma
& got a little overwhelmed with all the home care instructions.
when the nurse informed me she was going to show me how to remove the gauze
i had to remind myself i am an RN and can handle this.
didn't remember what a rough few days that was going to be for her.
although i kinda wish i had the option on having mine removed
post having four children. it would have been a fantastic start to a weight loss program!
btw, the pomegranate acai blueberry & the lemon grove sorbets from kroger
are seriously delicious.
little bit is wrapping up 5th grade with many fun activity days
my little herb garden ( & i do use the term garden loosely as it's basically just an area
where i planted said herbs but it's no fancy cute marked garden)
is growing like a beast.
so are the bunnies that are enjoying my basil & blueberries.
i'm probably not even supposed to plan blueberries & herbs together
which is proof that it's not technically a garden.
mothers day morning i woke up to a downpour. major downpour.
the thought of staying inside, in my jammies with no where to go
& people bringing home take out honestly sounded fabulous.
i might have made the remark, i wish we celebrated mother's day on saturdays
so mom's could sleep in
but we rolled out ( sans medicated child post wisdom teeth extraction)
to head to early service.
in the downpour.
& this is the shot of sweet dan using the hairdryer on my
soaked cd holder thanks to my suburban window staying down all night long.
in the downpour.
we had a wonderful lunch.
they loved me extravagantly
& wrote priceless love on their instagrams & cards picked out pre-surgery.
even brink got in on the mother's day love
not only did we not stay inside in our jammies
we went to not only one church but two
& then proceeded to eat out again at dinner.
it was awesome!
in keeping with my new slower than a turtle reading pace
i finally finished books 1 & 2. debated on starting book 3 as i had heard it was a disappointment.
life's too short to read a 400 pager only to regret the time spent
but then a friend gave this endorsement,
"Having close family and friends live threw extraordinary circumstances like war, PTS, loss, etc., I think book 3 is her best book yet. I understand why some feel disappointed, but Collins' purpose is not to entertain. She brilliantly conveys the thread of HOPE to the book's conclusion and eloquently describes the depths of healing in a realistic light. Many of my said friends had found book 3 therapeutic. Coupled with a biblical viewpoint, this book changed my perspective on the world and our role in it."
so yeah, i'm on it!
smk recovered quickly &
despite a still puffy face, has been hanging out at
braves games & shooting ranges.
heaven help me.
i'm spending today finishing editing photos of sweet hutton.
remember the little girl who i asked for prayer months ago
after she was life flighted here to atlanta?
she's doing fabulous. almost to the one year mark post her heart transplant.
her mama has been one of the most encouraging friends i've met in the blog world.
we might as well have been neighbors for years as i love her just the same!!
we've talked about our photo shoot with hutton for months...
eat her up!!
