Where did the time go?

Wow…24 days since my last post.  I know it’s been a while.

We went on an off-roading/camping trip and I took all of my camera gear.  I lost a teeny tiny piece of my camera, and the dang thing wouldn’t work without that piece!  Imagine that.  So, I had to order the piece and wait for it to come in.  So, I haven’t been able to do my daily 365 challenge.  I will start it back up…probably re-start in May for a fresh start to a new month.

A lot of things has been going on that have been keeping me busy lately though.  Hubby and I went to San Diego over the weekend for our anniversary.  We have been married for 11 years now!  When we lived in St. Louis, we never went or did anything for our anniversary because he was either A) deployed or B) something else was going on.  Since moving to Tucson, we have gone out of town for our anniversary for the past 2 years.  Last year was Las Vegas.  Had a lot of fun and did way too much in the small amount of time we had.  This year, we headed to the beaches of San Diego, and had a relaxing time.  We both loved it so much, we have already decided to go back there again next year.

I took a ton of pictures, but have yet to upload, cull, and edit.  I will be working on them this week to post.

We are also in the process of moving houses.  Still on base, just a different house.  This one will be a one story with a lot more room!  I’m excited about that.  Now, we just have to start the packing process.  Hubby is taking the week off all next week to move us in slowly.  Then we will have people help us move the big stuff at the end.

Also, next week I am going to go see Kenny Chesney up in Phoenix.  I can’t wait!  I went to one of his concerts several years ago in St. Louis, and had so much fun.  Not sure if I will be able to take my camera in for that.  I guess I will find out!

And finally, my baby girl.  She is a freshman right now in college; living in the dorms. She was trying to find an apartment or house to rent with other students and move off campus; but money is an issue and she just won’t be able to do it.  It’s too late to try and stay in the dorm, so she is moving home for a semester to save up money.  I know it’s not what she wants, but she understands it is what she needs to do and has accepted it.

I was going to take the largest spare bedroom in our new house for my photography studio, but will be giving it up so she can move into it and more space.  She is her mother’s daughter…she needs lots of space!  I’m excited because I’ll be able to see more of her.  Her?  Not so much about spending more time with mom and dad.  🙂

Here is a collage of pics I took from San Diego with my phone this past weekend.  Can’t wait to dive into the pics on my camera and see what I got!
