Life, Life, Life...

Even though I've been trying to keep the general "mood" of my blog up, I still feel like my posts are lacking, and inspiration is missing lately.  I apologize for that.  My family is going through some life stuff right now, and while I don't want to disclose all of my personal "junk" here, I do want to let you know that there is a reason for my distance.  I appreciate each and every one of you, and while posting may be a little sparse for some time, you are still on my mind.  I'll share more when I can... for now I'm doing my best to stay positive.  :)  Here's a bit of what we've been up to:

New favorite records. :)

Sprinkler-trampoline fun!

Buddy time.  <3

Packing things from here to there to here to there...

Receiving packages from friends with funny packing materials.  :)

Shopping for Father's Day presents.  Shhhh.

 Doing photo shoots for friends.

Enjoying my favorite summer fruit!!!!

Going to the pool! (Okay, typically I WOULD NOT post bathing suit pictures of myself, but I wanted to show my new suit!  I LOOOOVE it!)

Enjoying favorite dresses and summer days!

Right now we are in the middle of getting a new car as well, so we are keeping very busy.  I think staying busy is the key distraction from other things... at least for a while.  ;)  Anyway, I hope summer is treating you well... also, I hope you'll forgive the heaviness of this post.  I would so much rather be light-hearted ALL. THE. TIME.    xoxo Katie
