{ Weekly Menu } 9/30/13- 10/6/13

Last week, I took a much needed break from technology to focus a little more time with my family and form a solid business/work schedule.

This week feels SO much better already as the weather begins to change, and schedules begin to slow down.. we are finally settling in.

I’m resolving to try to keep my working hours to the hours Connor is at Mother’s Day Out. Mondays, and Thursdays will be my computer work time, emails time, call returning time, and editing time. The other days will be our regularly scheduled events such as playgroup, library, park and scheduled sessions/weddings.

It’s a hard pill to swallow to think that he has already started the route towards school and being gone from home more hours out of the day than he will be at home (minus sleep). So, while business and our clients (we love y’all) are important to us, we are striving to balance and create an efficient work atmosphere that is completely separate from home life. 

I will be present while he is home. I will be off the phone while we play. I will be intently focused on our family affairs and molding a little mind purposefully.



So if I don’t answer your texts or calls right away, know that I WILL, and when I do, I will be fully focused on you! The same goes for my family! 

Tomorrow = getting caught up on beautiful brides, returning emails, and sending a few invoices. 

So, with that, here’s our weekly menu!
