Well, my return from the beach was rather exciting.
1) My Knock Out roses are blooming!
2) Construction began on the addition to the house. I walked into our bedroom at midnight to find this, which is apparently helping hold up the house as they begin constructing a new roof.
3) This is the most exciting in my book (Morgan would probably go with construction on our house for his excitement level). Our family portrait session with AK was finished while I was gone, with a CD of the pictures waiting in my mailbox. I'm sure y'all will get sick of my outfit in these pictures, because they will be making lots of appearances!
Oh, I just can't stop looking at them- aren't they just gorgeous? AK did my bridal portraits (although not my wedding, since she was a bridesmaid), and I have not had the opportunity for her to formally take my picture since. I told Morgan that I wanted this to be an annual Mother's Day gift. He was rather bemused, as the boy does not like having his picture taken. Anyway, I guess it's finally time to swap some profile pictures out for something a little more recent- laugh lines and all!
If you are looking for a photographer, AK is amazing. She even corralled this crew- a feat in itself!
Also, I am so glad to have all my hard work on my containers immortalized. The bugs got them while I was gone- they still look beautiful, just rather, um, chewed on. Shaggy pansies and geraniums- thanks unknown bug.
