Home Sweet Home!

Finally I have touched Utah soil and am so happy to be home with my babies! Thank goodness I met and made a great friend Kathy on my trip home who made my flight here seem like a minute as we dived into conversations revolving around business, photography, family, goals, etc. "Networking is your networth".....I've been so blessed to meet some incredible people within this last week. However, my week away from my babies was pretty hard. I have never been away from them for more than 1 day, so a whole week was almost mere torture. My kids have grown so much within one week and I learned to appreciate them so much more upon my return. My daughter was talking more clearly and in complete sentences, my boys appeared to be so much more mature, and it was krazy to see how much they had grown within a week:) As soon as I got into the vehicle they were all squeeling in the car with excitement. Alan grabbed my hand and wouldn't let go, and at that moment I started crying. As a mother, I find myself constantly evaluating myself and the time I spend with my babies. I plan to make my weeks stay in Vegas work some magical things this year with my photography goals. If anything, its these people you see above who push and drive me to work hard so we can have the luxury of time to spend together as a family! I work hard to do my best, but my family makes me even better. My family is at the core of my inspiration and I am so lucky to have them in my life! Last night was so much fun as we all cuddled up in our bed singing, telling stories, and catching up on all the things I missed when I was gone! Its so great to be loved, and even at one point each of my babies were fighting kz they all wanted to sleep by mom. Gotta love being a mom! I needed to take a break from WPPI kz it was beyond overload, so give me some time to digest it all and I promise to have something posted about my wrap up and J* experience.

Soooo true Jane... my kids wouldn't allow me to leave them since I've returned. Made me so sad. It's tough trying to find that balance, but it's something we'll have to figure out. I love that I spent this past week with you. You are the best and such an inspiring person. You taught me this week to let go of all insecurities and LEARN and JUST ASK the gazillion questions that pop-up during a convention like this. Thanks! BTW- I am like a #1 fan of Jerry Ghionis. AWESOME! AWESOME! and so down-to-earth. Never in a million years would I think he'd be so willing to take for US. So Sweeeet! Anyways, Thanks again for EVERYTHING~!!!!
