The week is almost done!

This has been such a long week. I guess it is dragging due to the holiday next week. We are so excited to be hosting Thanksgiving. We never get to see anyone. I think we saw people more when we lived 4 hours away than we do now. Its understandable. We all have crazy busy lives and its hard to make plans. When we were in Pa we would come down for a whole weekend. So we would see everyone alot more. The visits were always crazy but at least we got to see people. Now it seems there is always something going on during the weekends. That would be my fault as I am the one constantly scheduling things. Oh well, Thanksgiving will be really nice. I cant wait. Then the Christmas season is here in full swing! I cannot believe how fast it came this year. I feel like it should still be September. I love the holidays, don't get me wrong but they always seem to creep up on me.

I did a photo shoot about a month back. I took some pictures of my best friend and her brother. They wanted to give it to their parents for Christmas. I was so happy to do it as I need the practice shooting and editing. Here are a few of my favorites.

Rainy Saturday

UGH!!! Its a rainy Saturday. I am somewhat bored out of my mind and its only 10 am. I really dont feel like cleaning at all (who does). I have tons of pics to edit from a photoshoot last weekend. Dont want to do that right now either. What to do! What to do!!!!

I did a photoshoot a few weeks ago for Owen. Here are some of the shots. It was alot of fun!

Wants and Needs

So Brian and I have been doing alot of talking about our move and whats next. For those of you that do not know we are moving to Boston in June or July.

Here is the short of it...
Brian and I decided it was time for him to look for a new job. His commute is too long and we don't have any quality time together, we never get to eat dinner together! He comes home around 7 or 7:30 and is wiped, I am wiped from working all day, doing house stuff, Owen etc. Needless to say he would spend 20 min with Owen before he went to bed. Once Owen was in bed we would both be zombies. That is no way to live life. So we decided he should find another job that is local. Are we happy with where we are? NO but we were willing to settle to live a somewhat simple, normal life. Well Brian found a job within two weeks of looking. He accepted, went to Boston (Triumvirate Headquarters) to give his official notice to all the bosses. Well they weren't having it. They decided to counter offer and gave him an offer we couldn't refuse. They offered to move us to Boston and send Brian to school. All expenses paid up front. For those of you that have to pay a college tuition, you know how much that is and how hard it is to get a loan.

I know this sort of goes against what we were looking for but not really. We will be living less than 10 miles from his job, he will have a 9-5 schedule, a completely different job and 90% less stress. He will be in school full time. It will be difficult but will pay out in the long run. Neither of us have a degree. If he were ever to leave his company it would be impossible for him to get another job at his level without a degree. We have been talking about one of us getting a degree for some time now. There is never enough money or time. Well now we don't have to worry about the money and we will make the time.

I really can not wait for this. We will all benefit from it. It will be the move for a long time. We will be settling up there until Owen graduates high school. Or I should say until the next one graduates high school. Owen will start kindergarten a few months after we move, Brian will start school and I will probably take some Adobe and photography classes. It will be the best thing for all of us.

Lately we have been talking about having another baby. We were on the fence because it will be so chaotic with Brian working and in school. I think we have finally come to an agreement that we should try in August of 09. I can not wait. I think we are both ready.

OK that wasn't so short but ya know!
