Monday In A Moment #51 – On Going Home


1 :: Homeward Bound – At long last we finally received word on where we are moving for the year 2015! Drum roll please….. …. …. …. We are moving to ABILENE, TEXAS!! Who would have thought? After three long years of being over 5000 miles from home we will move three hours away from Garland. My brain simply cannot process this information! Not to mention the fact that my husband and I have only experienced our marriage living abroad, never living in the good ‘ole US of A. We have never had simple conversations like, what kind of delivery pizza would you like, papa johns or domino’s? or Where do you want to go to the store, Kroger or Whole Foods? There is a whole new chapter of our life racing our way and the best part is? We’ll be home for Christmas this year! Stay tuned for more details…

2 :: No More Bookings – In line with our moving day news, I am making the official announcement that I am no longer taking new clients for the year 2014. With all of the PCS paperwork, packing, housing closeouts and more, my time is extremely limited and my calender is booked through December 1st!  I want to thank everyone for letting me be a part of this outstanding community full of talented photographers and amazing clients.

3 :: Ode to Kate Spade – Browsing through the new arrivals at Norstrom shoes, I found myself choosing Kate Spade design after Kate Spade design… and figured why not? She’s awesome… she deserves her own MIAM shoe pick shoutout. Without further ado, I give you Kate Spade New York… how I love her so!

6 :: Giggles – D and I had the pleasure of babysitting are two favorite monkeys this past weekend and I still can’t believe how much the girls have grown. S was particularly giggly that day and I was enthusiastically trailing after her with a camera to capture the joy. The one to the far right is my favorite…. her laugh is absolutely infectious!

Happy Monday Ya’ll!!! It’s my hope that Monday In A Moment brightens the beginning of your week so you can power through to the end!
