{bit of the South}

I’ve been such a bad bad blogger.  I have so much to blog, so little time to do it (not to mention, wordpress went wacko on me and prevented me from posting for a while).  Wow, life has been so crazy busy since moving here.  I’m not taking any clients here (except for commercial clients) until the fall, so I thought I’d have time to ease into life here but it seems that’s not going to happen.  It’s all good fun but I find myself going to bed when the kids do since I’m so tired by the end of a very busy and active day.  I think this summer is going to be even crazier…hate to admit. 

I’ve been editing a few sessions from my last few days in South Carolina. It’s fun editing them, but it makes me want to start photographing children now… then I step outside and remember why I decided to wait until fall to resume my sessions.  It’s been unseasonably hot here, in the low 100′s. The only time I can photograph kids is at ~5  in the morning…since the temp is nice that early (a cool 75 degrees).  My kids are the only ones that I dare bring out that early {giggle, giggle}.    And I will be doing that soon since they get up early enough to give me hugs and tons of kisses before my morning runs.

Anyway, I have a bunch more to blog about but I have to run out and take my kids to their swimming lessons.  I’ll be blogging again soon… stay tuned:)  Thanks!
