Well, I survived the past week . . . barely. But indeed, I do believe I survived.
Tony and I make a habit to try to not share when we're gone from our house, but especially to refrain from sharing when Tony is gone. I'm getting to be a little more of a big girl when my husband is gone, but I still hate it and sleep with the shotgun within easy access.
So, Tony left for the BWCA [Boundary Waters Canoe Area] which is an uninhabited and undeveloped area between Minnesota and Canada. This also as you can imagine, left us out of communication for 5 days. Five days. Seriously, five days. It's so hard to be apart, but worse yet to be unable to speak to each other to top it off!
I started out strong on Thursday, by getting Ezra dropped off at my Mom's, jetting over to drop Isaac off at preschool, but I had to succumb to a freaking migraine before I could even get into work. I was so annoyed because I was actually going to be on time and I was already taking Friday off for a wedding. After sleeping, medicating and caffeinating the headache away, the boys and I managed an alright evening.
And the next day, I had one of my most amazing weddings ever. Period.
Can you even handle it? I couldn't.
My Mom watched the boys and I returned home, super late, stayed up super late uploading cards and then got up super early with the boys to continue uploading cards. My Mom and Dusty took Isaac and Ezra to the Nowthen Threshing Show [aka the John Deere Show aka Isaac's version of heaven], while I . . . I got to shoot this amazing wedding.
This bridal party was one of the most fun of the year, and how could it not being that my good friend Abbey was the matron of honor! My bride Jenni ordered these Ray-Bans for the bridal party and they came just in time [literally the day of]. The guys killed it.
Yesterday was pretty low key, as I tried to keep my head above water with both weddings, the boys and seasonal allergies. The highlight was probably teaching Isaac how to "slingshot" his underwear. We had way too much fun going back and forth in the living room.
And for the grand finale.
My husband returned!
