I have so much pretty coming to the blog this week that I am dying to share, but in order to get all that prettiness prepped and ready, I need to have the most productive Monday of my life! Eeek! Not only do I need to do a ton of office work, but I also need to get us ready to go to California this week! Packing up a baby for a 4 hour flight and 5 days in California on top of packing up all of my gear and own clothes is proving to be much more difficult than I thought it would be! But since this wedding season has been so nonstop crazy and we have not been able to log a ton of family time, I thought I would combine a work trip with a little family fun too! So, my little family of 3 flies out to sunny California early Wednesday morning and I will be going nonstop until then. I can’t wait to show my loves one of my favorite places in the US….and to shoot some amazinggg couples when I am there! (Stalk me on Instagram if you want some sneak peek goodness, not to mention a play by play on #babysfirsttriptocali !) It should be a wonderful escape from the stifling Chicago cold…in temperature and creativity! (Even if we had to put off going to cut down our Christmas tree until we get back, it WILL be worth it!)
So, while I try to avoid getting my Cyber Monday on all over the internet and chain myself to my desk until Wednesday, I will leave you with a couple behind the scenes snaps taken at the first wedding of the 2013 season (just 4 weeks after Baby Gray was born!) that I just came across this weekend! So much has happened over the past year that it is crazy to look at these and think of how fast the year goes by!
