O Christmas Tree

tree skirt (West Elm - old) similar here, here & here

This weekend was all over the place. I was so excited to already have a handful of clients for my burgeoning photography business. So off I went with rain threatening my first shoot. It was a combination of a lot of things but I basically left feeling defeated. I blame a lack of confidence on my part and some hyper children on the other! Needless to say I think this weekend was a great learning lesson. It was also a great lesson to myself that I've got this - I just need to get out of my own damn head.

Sunday I had two sessions that got cancelled due to the rain so we trekked out to find our Christmas tree. It was actually just what I needed for a reboot. We were on the hunt for a silver tip but found they were pretty hard to come by. I think the one we got is one - but who knows!

All night P was enamored with the ornaments and wooden cranberry beads and by enamored I mean pulling them off! So the bottom half of the tree is all stuffed non breakables and the top half our nicer ornaments. No way is this mama putting a gate around the tree!

Now I am cozied on the couch watching The Affair - this show is too dang good I am bummed it's almost over! Monday we meet again...

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
