Snapshots from a happy life

Sometimes you just need to step away from the internet and go enjoy life outside a computer screen. I've been an internet addict (certifiably) since the moment I first logged on (love at first byte?) in the mid 90s, but after my parents bought me my first PC in early 1998, hooked up to the internet in my room, my fate was sealed, and I have spent far too much time online ever since ... precisely why I'm finding it more and more necessary to take breaks as I get older. Smartphones have really accelerated this technology burnout. In short? Blogging got exhausting and nothing was happening. So I took a (long) weekend off.

Ahhhh.

It felt great. I've had a great couple of weeks. Going through these photos and posting them really made me realize why I feel so busy, and why my heart feels so full. Here are some highlights:

I have some great posts planned for this week (in my not-so-humble opinion...) before we jet off to Los Angeles on Friday morning to shoot a wedding (in Malibu) on Friday & Saturday. We're also going to be staying with my BFF Christina on Sunday night before flying back home on Monday. It's going to be a great time, but I am a wee bit stressed out about everything as well.
