Today was a hard day. My best friend Jennifer moved to Indiana today. As much as I know that this is such a wonderful opportunity for her and her family it still hurts. I never realized how hard it was going to be to say goodbye. I met up with her and her family and friends for breakfast this morning before she headed off. I did fine through out the entire breakfast. I was supposed to take pictures but I just couldn't bring myself to do it, as taking pictures just made it seem so final. So we all ate breakfast together and I had to say goodbye to my boys Dylan and Deven, and then lastly Jenn. I couldn't hold it any longer and started crying, which of course made poor Jenn start crying which just made me cry harder. So after tearful goodbyes we got in our cars and one last time headed in separate directions. My husband tried to comfort me and said that we would definitely go visit her this summer. So that at least makes me somewhat happy. Then he was cute and said, "Well you still have me, even if I'm not as cool as Jenn". That made me laugh because he knows he isn't as cool as Jenn lol. We then decided to take a trip to circuit city to get my mind off things. We walked around for a little bit and then wandered over to Petsmart, I was hoping they would have the puppies in but nope just kittens. Now I am NOT a cat person but dang those kittens were cute. William told me I could get one hahaha all I could think was I could just see those little terrors tearing up my new couches and attacking my kids as they played so of course I passed. Again I am NOT a cat person. Anyways, Jenn has been keeping me updated on their progress of driving there. Right now they are in Flagstaff, AZ, they should hopefully finish their trip by Tuesday at around 3pm. So now all I get to look forward to is talking to my Jenn online and hopefully saving enough money to make a trip there in the next month or two. Anyways, today was a hard day. :(
Sunday I had a great time meeting up with Shannon and her fiance Erwin to do an engagement shoot. We met in Lake Arrowhead and it was completely beautiful! If I weren't such a chicken when it comes to all of the fires I would seriously consider moving there! Anyways, here is your sneak peak :)
It seems that lately I can only get pics of my kids if they are strapped down to something lol. IE the carseat, the high chair and what not, well there are only soooo many photographs I can take before they all start looking the same, so I've come to the conclusion I need to edit my pictures differently! So here is one of my little man edited out of the norm :)
For Mother's day my wonderful husband took me and the kiddos to the beach! It was such a beautiful day. Poor little Rory was deathly afraid of the sand lol, but my little Logan just couldn't get enough!
Tuesday I had a maternity shoot for PK. I love maternity shoots they are so wonderful! Being pregnant is such a blessing and PK is an absolutely gorgeous pregnant lady! She has the most perfect baby belly! She kept talking about stretch marks but I think she is crazy because I could hardly see ANY I mean I had to HUNT to find them hahaha! Well congrats PK I can't wait to meet Alyssa when she comes!
My dear friend's daughter, Kylie, turns two on June 13th exactly 3 days after my son turns 1! Last year her daughter's birthday party was June 9th, I went and was miserable the whole time. Silly me I thought it was the plastic lawn chairs but in reality I was in labor hahahaha. The entire party she kept telling me I was going to have my son the next day and I kept saying I wish but yeah right! HA! I had my beautiful bundle of joy the next day at 4:16pm!
My sweet little Aurora made my day yesterday! For the first time ever she told me she loved me :) I had just got done making her lunch, and I came over to give it to her, then bent down and kissed her head and said "you are so adorable, I love you!" She looked up to me with those big huge blue eyes and tried to say it back! It came out I Low Lu. Those three little words, that came out sounding wrong like everything else she says, made me completely break down! As I felt my eyes swell, I couldn't help but think, nothing can top this. :)
My name is Jenilee but you can just call me Jen. I live in Southern California with my husband and three children. I love being a mom & wife more than anything! My second love is photography! I am a professional photographer and I love the fact that I get to do something that I love for a living!
