So I am sitting here with my cup of coffee this morning listening to my children run amok, their breakfast half eaten still sitting on the table, the TV on Girl Meets World LOUD as anything (can’t find the remote & honestly to lazy to search for it), and I should be cleaning right now but lets face it… NO ONE LIKES CLEANING! And now I am hearing my son scream at his sister, “You don’t like me? That fine. I go tell Ma!” Oh the joys of Mommy-Hood, lol.
Well as I sit here listening to the everyday sounds of life… I am trying to finalize things for next week. If you didn’t know yet I will be traveling to my first destination wedding… In Iowa. *insert screaming with joy*
I’m not going to lie. I am full of mixed emotions these days… I’m scared, nervous, excited, fearing the unknown, overwhelmed, and every other emotions there is. But the truth is I wouldn’t have it any other way !!! This is my first time traveling so far away to capture someones memories they will cherish for life. This is something I have been dreaming of. And next week I take my first steps in to the world of destination weddings. But then when I return I get to travel again to The Outer Banks of North Carolina to capture another wedding. OH MY DREAMS ARE GROWING! Excited to see what our Lord has in store for me. Trying to have faith and keep calm. But lets face it… That’s very hard to do right now, lol.
So now as I sit here finalizing the rest of this months shoots before I leave… And making list of things to get done. I can’t help but smile and enjoy these moments.
My children are excited for me as well. And although I will be gone for a week and they will be left with a friend. I find myself excited for them as well. After all they will have a break from their Mommy and be able to have an adventure with a young lady who they love dearly already. Such a blessing God has supplied us with. A young soul who is going to be with our babies day and night, ups and downs, meal times, and bed times. And I feel as though I am leaving them with a version of myself. I see such love and strength in this young lady. I pray their adventure that week is one to cherish as well.
And with that said I now must finish up some things, clean house, do laundry, and make sure to snuggle with my babies as much as I can before I have to leave for a few days. ❤
This is the VERY FIRST time I have ever had to leave them this long or in another’s care. Please pray for us all. I don’t know the emotions I will have so far away from them. And although I pray they don’t miss me as much as I will miss them… I pray most of all they have a blast while I am gone.
