Do you ever get that feeling if you don’t get away you’re just going to explode? My husband and I live busy lives. We both have full time careers coupled with two additional occupations- Navy Reservist and Photographer. Add two children to the mix, school, practices, soccer games, and a social life and you start to understand what I am talking about. In my photography world, I’ve been stressed out to the max- in a good way, of course! I’ve had some amazing fall sessions already and I’ve been working on a HUGE project! Yes, one of my business goals for this year was to plan a styled shoot. I am SO excited that everything is falling into place, but I must admit, it is truly hard work. It’s like planning your own wedding! I’ve got some AMAZING vendors on board and have been collaborating with Ali McLaughlin, a sweet friend and fellow photographer. Our preppy and plaid Scottish inspired wedding shoot is just over a week away and I cannot wait to share the images. To relieve some stress, my family and I headed to Williamsburg this weekend and really enjoyed just “being together.” No time limits. No schedule. NO cooking. No picking up after the kids. I LOVED it and I needed it. Even if it was quick getaway, it’s just what the doctor ordered. When your soul needs a little rejuvenation, listen to it and do yourself a favor – Take a break, plan an escape and soak in what really matters- time with your family. What’s your favorite escape? I’d love to hear!
