Photo Friday 2012 ~ 18 & 19 ~

I think this is the first time I have ever combined two weeks into one post, but I have a good reason.  We were on vacation at the beach.  And it was heaven.  We took our laptop and I used it once. 10 days.  How amazing is that?!  And it was wonderful not feeling the need to check on something constantly.  Not worrying if I have any emails that need attention, or questions from clients that I was neglecting to answer.  I just let it all go.  It was very freeing.  And I needed it.  I am slightly addicted to my computer and I guess realizing it is the first step in my recovery.  I'm trying to step away a bit more now that I am back, but I'm not gonna lie, it's really hard.  I need to use it for my photography and then the temptation to just check on one more thing, or look up one more thing is right in my face and hard to ignore.  But I'm working on it.  I will find a balance eventually.  I loved pretty much every minute of my vacation up until the part I got super sick with what I thought was sun stroke, then I thought maybe it was a migraine, and turns out I had strep throat.  I don't really want to talk about the part where I spent our last day at the beach falling asleep in the waiting room of an urgent care facility.  I feel much better now though.  I was going through the tons of photos (almost 1000, I think I set a new record for myself) and trying to narrow them down to a few to share and I was having a horrible time deciding what to post.  So I've decided to just share a few that I took at sunset one evening.  It turned out to be the perfect sunset for photos.  I have tons of pics of the beach and the pool and putt-putt and everything else that I will try to share in the next week when I get some down time.  Here are my favorites!

I love these two little people more than words can say.

This is just so them.  My girl being a ham and my boy just tolerating her.  I love it.

Love the soft pink light of the sunset in all of these.

My sweet, sweet boy.

I love how soft the sand looks in this one...I wish I were back there with my toes in it!  Of course, I love my little supermodel too.

I love how they are running in stride together.  I have some photos of them racing and jumping and they are literally doing the same exact thing in all the's kinda freaky.  I'll share them a different day.

I love how she looks so young in this photo splashing through the waves. I really have to wait an entire year before I go back?  Torture...

I'll try to post more often now that I'm back.  I hate neglecting my blog!  Also, I'm linking up with my same Project 52 group who has moved to a different blog.  Be sure to check them out.  I totally did not even reference the themes for this week or last since I was on vacation since yes, I even took a vacation from the themes!  I'll try to get back on track for next week though!

  1. I am totally in love with the picture of your kids running down the beach. The sunset is stunning and their placement in the photo is awesome. What beach are you at? The sand looks like you could lounge in it all day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you! These were taken at Panama City Beach, Florida. The sand there is perfect. And the water is always clear and blue. It's my one week of heaven and then back to the midwest...


Comments make me happy.
