I had a busy & packed weekend full of faces I loved seeing.
Friday night, I was going to finish up 13 Reasons Why when I got a phone call from one of my MSM girls. They were down the street at their friends house... the one who is now living in my friend's Steph's house. (That post I talked about that is right HERE)
Anyways, they wanted to know if it was OK if they could run down & say hi....
Of course. I knew this was going to happen but less than a week after they found out where I lived? Made me laugh. But the girls came over & I turned off 13 Reasons Why & put on a lighter movie... The Secret Life of Pets ;) I love that movie.
It was so fun talking to the girls & they were making plans for us all to do things during the summer. I just love these girls & love they want me to spend time with them.
They had walked over when it was light outside & by the time they were ready to head home, sun was set & it was dark. I live on a country road full of hills & no street lights. No way I was going to let them walk home. So I told them to get in the car & I'd drive them home ... & let me tell you, I almost had a panic attack when I turned into that drive way. I havent been in that drive way in 10 years.
& then the girl that lives there, her dad is a police officer & he was anxious about his daughter coming down to my house in the first place so I told her to have her dad come out & meet me so he knew who I was... & she text him & she said, "He said you can come in"
... breath in... breath out...
I am now walking up the side walk of my friend's house... & walked in the living room where I havent stood in so many years... & so many memories were flooding me.
It was so surreal, I cant even begin to tell you....
But I did meet her father & all the girls hugged me & I headed home... crying my eyes out.
I was in the perfect mood to finish up 13 Reasons Why.... & let the heart tearing continue.
OH MY GOSH... I finished it up - those last 3 episodes. I was cringing & so upset. I dont remember the book having that same sort of grip on me. I really need to re-read it. I think I'm going to start on it today actually.
I ended up staying up to nearly 1 am to finish out the show....
so that meant I slept in on Saturday. Nice. Super nice.
I was able to take my time & do some cleaning & worked out my body & worked out my hand lettering... & did some on my Bible Study for the week....
& then it was time to go do a family photo session.
I did this couple's wedding... & then their first baby's pictures... & here they are a family of 4 now. I love seeing these families grow & staying in touch with people. It helps when your clients are amazing people.
We werent sure we were going to be able to pull it off because the weather had been iffy all weekend. But I swear by my app Accuweather & it said it would rain one time during our session & it sprinkled EXACTLY the time it said it would - just long enough for us to hide under some steps & let it pass....
& then it said some large hail was going to come through & luckily, we had JUST finished the session when it came in. & MAN OH MAN... I need to check my car & see if there is any damage.
Chasity had come up to help me since I knew there was going to be a little one. Kids anywhere from 1-4 years old, you need extra attention getting tactics. & Chasity is a pro. But we planned on getting the hubbys & her kiddos to all meet up afterwards & we were able to go out to dinner together.
I cant believe I didnt take any pictures... I was just loving talking to Emerson. She is just at a funny age right now. & still loving Beauty & the Beast. She at one point got up & was walking around the restaurant singing "Belle"... everyone was laughing at her... while my heart was bursting with pride.
I ended up getting home & washing up after that humid photo session & I knocked out EARLY. So much for sleeping in.
|The drive home... the storm finally passed|
Sunday had me at church & MSM... I cant believe we only have 3 more weeks & then our summer break. The girls are already wanting some dates planned for summer get togethers ... a total must.
I had to run to Target to get some stuff & then ran over to see my parents & drop off a heart healthy cookbook for my daddy.
I came home & had to take advantage of cooler temps (Finally) & sunny skies (finally) & finished up my latest book.
Then I finished up m evening by editing... & thinking of the week ahead.. the one before a holiday weekend. That always makes the week more tolerable, doesnt it?
So how was your weekend?
Did you have horrible rains?
Did you watch 13 Reasons Why?
