Priorities!

IMG_0350

Tonight I received a wake up call and it couldn't have come at a more crucial time. Tonight, Paige told me she misses me. She said that I spend way too much time taking people's pictures and editing them. I agree! She then went on to say that she missed me taking her picture (she must really miss me to say that :)

I have been SO busy taking fall portraits. I teach during the week and am averaging three to four sessions a weekend. Then I have to grade papers, edit pics, take Paige to and from her extra curriculars, help with homework, etc... I am not willing to mess up any quality time with my mom, sister, brother, sister-in-law, friends, etc...

I lost a childhood friend last week. He died in an automobile accident. He was 35, newly married with a one year old baby boy. Life is far too precious to not spend it enjoying every last second with your loved ones!

I am hoping to blog more and post about all of the wonderful things my family and I are doing since I will have some free time!!!! YAY!

Well your blog is titled LIve Big and Laugh Often and all work and no play will take that away!
Sorry to hear about your friend. That's a wake up call to opening our eyes to what is important, that's for sure.

Such a sweet photo of you two! And so sweet that she would tell you that. Can't wait to hear all that you've been up to. I'm so sorry about your friend. That is so sad and heartbreaking. Take care.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Over the last 5 years have lost several dear friends all under 40 years of age. Life is too short, enjoy every moment with your wonderful family.
