Every now and then Art reminds me that I NEED to turn off the computer. That there's life outside of work. That's when I feel a pang of guilt. You see that sign above? Art bought that for me about 6 months ago to remind me to never get too busy that I forget about living our life. I promised I would take it out the newspaper it was wrapped in and put it on the night stand next to my side of the bed. It didn't get done until a couple of weeks ago. Why? Because I am always too busy (how ironic). Too busy for my husband, for my family, for my friends. I'm too busy with work to live my life. I enjoy photographing weddings and capturing the happiness that others live while with those they love that I forget that I too have family and friends that need and want me to share happiness with them. I'll admit it on here so that I can be embarrassed, at times I almost feel that life is getting in the way of business. That is a shame. Nobody should ever feel that way! I get so caught up with giving 100% of myself to the photographer side of me that I forget that I also need to give 100% of myself to being a wife, daughter, sister, cousin and friend to all those I love more than anything else in life. I need to give 100% of myself to...who else? myself! I need to work on de-stressing and doing all the things I love because I am not willing to let life pass me by!

With that said, Art and I went on our first date in a very looooong time! We decided to do something we had not done since we were like 15, miniature golfing. We also played at the arcade, shared a paleta, and he won should I say this?...interesting glasses for me. Afterwards we went to In N Out (yum) and then watched a movie and shared a big bag of popcorn. Perfect date, if you ask me! This is just the start! I promised Art and myself that I will make a lot more time for us, for our life. If I don't, he can always pull this post up and hold it against me, but it won't be necessary because I value my time with Art and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

Here are the spiffy glasses I got to rock on Saturday. Don't hate :p If anyone wants to borrow them, you know how to contact me!

Have a great week, everyone!

Enjoy the love you share with Art like it was the very 1st day!

Love the the glasses...I think I may borrow them :D

The glasses are very Kanye. I'm sure you rocked the hell out of them on your date.

It's great that your finding more "you" time. We suffer from the same thing and I think we need a sign like yours. We promised ourselves at least a monthly date night and we had one 4 months ago, but that's about it lol

In N Out is okay, but next time you have to go to Tommy's! The original one on rampart. Now THAT's some good eats! :D Los envito if you haven't tried one yet too. :)

P.S. I LOVE that you brought back your original photo borders with your name. I missed those. I'm sure they take more time than the current picture stamp you used, but I really like the border best. It's very "you" and I sort of missed seeing that on our blogged pictures. ;)

Hey Hope, I have tried Tommy's. When I was in high school I was addicted to it. I used to hate In N Out back then, but, for some reason, I'll take In N Out any day, now.

I switch up the borders, depending on what computer I'm on. I have to start keeping it consistent :P

Hope said...

Awesome. If In N Outs were bigger and had tons of chili on them, they'd have my heart too. :)

Thanks for explaining the borders thing. I guess I'll take either, so long as you keep blogging pretty pictures. :D
