this and that on a Monday



  • Life's been crazy busy on many levels. I've been neglecting my blog greatly(I'm sorry) but will do a post about Thanksgiving on Wednesday.

  • I had my last 2 outdoor photo sessions this weekend before the snow flies here. Thankfully I got them in because we're supposed to have a measurable snow on Wednesday. I guess I'm ready for the next 5 months of Winter, as ready as it gets.

  • I've really enjoyed taking pictures of families and it makes me happy when they love the results.

  • I'm thinking about setting up a little indoor (using our guestroom) studio to start taking pics. I'd set it up after Christmas.

  • Speaking of Christmas...wow! it's coming up quickly. I have started my shopping.

  • Yesterday it was 58 degrees outside so we put up our outside decorations, and my favorite wreath is on the front door.

  • I originally was hosting Thanksgiving for my entire extended family, was planning the menu and then last week my Mom decided she wanted to have it at her house. Thanks Mom!

  • What are y'all doing for Thanksgiving?

Hi Gail,
I have been neglecting blogging in general. Not enough hours in the day. I popped on FB for a moment and linked over from there.

What a beautiful wreath!! So glad to hear you got your two shoots in and may prepare for indoor winter shoots.

I'm hosting Thanksgiving as usual - 27 people. I'm looking forward to it, because 16 of them haven't met Kara. Now, ask me Thursday morning if I'm still looking forward to it, and you might get a different answer! :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Have a great Thanksgiving! I have been ignoring my blog, but for quite a while! I hosted Thanksgiving for the last 2 years, so it feels a little strange to not be worried about it this year! Enjoy it!

Your pictures are amazing - I wish I could come get my kids' pictures taken by you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My blog is going to the wayside too. I am just so busy now with Sophia home and other things coming into my life.
I hope you have a very blessed Thanksgiving.
Your photography is beautiful.

Gail, I understand the being so busy thing. I think it's just part of the package with kids in the house.
We are going to my sister's house. Mom/dad's house is tore up with a remodel, so my sister took Thanksgiving and I'm doing Christmas.
Have a wonderful Turkey Day with the ones you love. ;)

Love your favorite wreath on the door...how did I miss this post?

So glad you will continue your amazing photography through the VERY long Wisconsin winter indoors!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Gail!
