A movie and beers, dress fittings and lunch, cuddling up in bed and comedy reruns, writing in the woods and taking deep breaths, Sunday brunch and visiting with family, planning my garden and calling old friends.
Sunday morning was going to be fabulous. We had a plan to finally use the Groupon I bought back before Christmas for a delicious brunch at a farm-to-table restaurant about 40 minutes away.
Too bad I had the thought to check if we needed a reservation when we were only ten minutes from the place. The woman on the other end of the phone was not pleasant. We were not getting in. No way, no how.
Sour moods began to show through as we hurriedly made a second-best plan for getting food in our stomachs, pronto. We dejectedly decided to stop in at the grocery store and buy some picnic food and then search for a place to park ourselves. We got some croissants, olives, hummus, cheese, (and chocolate muffins, too) and found a grassy school yard to picnic. With food in our stomachs, our picnic gave way to photo shoots and rolling down grassy slopes and cartwheeling.
It turned into a lovely Sunday morning, after some adapting! Turns out, changing plans at the last minute isn't as hard as I always think it is...
Yes, it's now been three days since I began uploading and editing these photos. Don't get me started on slow internet connections.
This weekend found me traipsing around a state park with a professional photographer assisting with an engagement shoot. YES! It's true. In a quick turn of events, a photographer contacted me and invited me along and within just a few days I was by her side as she photographed the sweetest couple's engagement session. (Okay, so the only "assisting" I did was holding a reflector. Once. The rest was just fun.) It was so exciting to see her in action and I can't wait to learn more. I'll share photos as soon as I'm able. Thanks, Sara!
Oh yeah, and I also had my Friday night date with myself (which I forgot included Ray LaMontagne on Live from the Artists Den, hurray!), went with Lauren to meet with a florist for her wedding flowers, had an impromptu picnic, and prepared for another spring cleanse (I'll share soon, I promise!). But mostly, I was just over the moon about the photo shoot :)
