Not sure what to title this since I have been gone for so long, so I'll go with a really long title instead of something easy like "catch up".

I've been away for some time. Not sure why, just busy I suppose, but at least I remembered my log in and password for this here blog. I kept meaning to jot things down, blog the little things and even the big things, but time escaped me. That is happening more and more as of lately. Time does fly when you are having fun, and I can honestly say that I have been having fun. Not the "I spent 2 weeks in Hawaii" kind of fun, but LIFE fun. For once in a very, very long time. That folks, is well, worth basking in and enjoying, right? Right.

So yes, time for catch up...random style.

*Eden is almost 9 months. Holy shit, when did that happen? She is crawling like mad, pulling up and standing. ( I keep trying to tell her to sit her pretty butt down because I am not ready for this at all. AT. ALL.)

*I shot my first wedding a month ago and have been buried in photo editing every night since (once the baby goes to bed). Since Miss E has taken a liking to not sleeping, well the photo editing is taking me longer. But shooting the wedding was a blast and I loved EVERY moment of it. Like every moment , even where I broke my $400 lens and had to use money that I got paid to go QUICKLY buy another. Yeah....lesson learned, don't set camera down.

*The no sleep thing? Yeah. Eden was sick about 2 months ago and stopped sleeping after this. I only sleep between 12-4 am lately. AND that is not counting getting up 2 times with the baby in that short, VERY short period of time. It is beyond me how I don't fall asleep while typing this. I'm tired and wore out.

*As if things aren't stressful enough with working full time, having 2 kids and such, we have put our house on the market. FINALLY. House hunting? was fun just to look but now I worry that we won't find that perfect house or that we'll find a better one as soon as we move in somewhere.

*JC is doing well, enjoying summer. He's getting so tall, tan and handsome. That boy. I love that boy.

*Mr. CE and I got to go out of town BY OURSELVES for the first time in about 9 years. (of course for someone else's wedding. I took an insane amount of photos and would like to show them off, but I have been buried in wedding photos and have not even gone through our weekend out of town photos. Soon. Very soon.

*My nephew is getting so big and cute and I just love the daylights out of him. I have photos of him too. Can you guess why you aren't seeing them? Yeah, I need like 10 more hours a day to get everything done, but honestly I would try to sleep for like 5 hours instead.

* I was losing weight, nicely too. NOW? Ha. Stress, meet 5# weight gain. That is all I will say about that...

That about sums things up. Life is beautiful, life is busy but pretty darn amazing.

I'm so happy that things are going well for you. Being happy is the best. Wish I could get a few more hours in the day for us both. Enjoy the rest of the summer and maybe we'll see each other at the market.

It is so nice to see an update- I miss reading about the fam fam, Little E, your life and whatnot. Don't be a stranger, m'kay?

PS- that part about being tired and busy and enjoying the Summer? ME TOO.

Thanks for catching us up. I was thinking about you today actually.

K is doing the same pulling up thing too. And I can kinda relate on the sleep issues as well.

I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying life girl... :)

Life and everything that comes with it has been taking it's toll on my blog, too. You are so not alone.

Post pics when you can. Cause I like to look at your pics.

Which sounds kind of dirty, but it's true.
