Karl and I went out on a photo shoot today. We traipsed through swamps, twigs, branches, and thick brush. We got mauled by small insects and scratches on our legs. Not to mention that we lost a cell phone and locked a set of keys in a car. And yet in the midst of it all we still remained inexplicably hott. I got to play around with my new toy, a 5 in one light disc reflector. Oh how I love you so, you reflector of light...you master of the glare...you blind me with your grandiose rays of shiney...I heart your violent light...
Yes, so anyway...pictures will be coming soon. Karl's a hottie. And after the morning with Karl, we made our way to the Wilson household for some Ken, Meg, G and soon to be Rainey photo love. I can't wait to see what we get out of those...
So this past weekend a few of us spent the weekend at Sandy's mountain home in Little Switzerland, NC. It was exactly what I needed: quiet and the lack of a schedule. We did a lot of nothing which was everything to me. Not to mention that it was surrounded by pure beauty. In the quiet and simplicity I hear Him loudest. And what I heard Him saying was "shh...I've got you." It was good. Not to mention that there was a bookstore that I wanted to live in. Wall to wall BOOKS! There were old books, new books, used books, ceiling to floor BOOKS! Two floors of BOOKS! It gave me much joy and I walked away with two new additions to my collection. A 1866 edition of Milton's Paradise Lost and a 1882 edition fo Chaucer. As for the rest of the weekend there was a lot of rain (which just made it even better), Stacks, yummy food, foosball and a LOT of The Cosby Show season one on dvd accompanied by cookies and milk. Can it get better? I submit that it cannot. (Well actually it could have and I'm going to be really mushy when I say this but it could have been awesomer (yes, I'm making it a word) if Joe could have been there). Thanks Sandy for opening your home to us and letting us share a weekend with you. Lbzy has some photos and there's some up on my flickr page.
I would call this the weekend update, but it is in fact a week late. I will say that the weekend in Charleston was wonderful. And Pudge and Meghan's wedding was completely enchanting. Complete with a rainstorm soaking everyone and yet not one person complained. It was all smiles and laughter. And it made me happy and I got to spend the weekend with my favorite people and I loved it!
