The Business of Being Busy

I’m having one of those days where I look at the calendar, see half of the date boxes crossed through and think “Holy moly July 12th! How is it July 12th?” (I just wrote that as June 12th and had to correct it, BECAUSE IT’S JULY not June. See the theme?).

I think I got lost in the time warp somewhere between engagement photo session with my fiancĂ© (imagine a crazy bride-to-be high on viewing hundreds of professional engagement photos, a dusty, hot mountain top setting, a father/photographer with his own agenda and FLIESx100), the 4th of July holiday weekend (picture a BBQ, cocktails and a sandy beach), and the subsequent void left by my lovies out-of-town work trip. Good news is the Lovies came back and engagement party invites will include the photo above. How’s that for being productive!

Down Under

“Welcome to Australia. We would advise you not to swim in the water because in the unlikely chance you survive a shark attack, the deadly jellyfish will finish you off. We would advise you not to hike through the bush. The fangs of a funnel web spider can easily penetrate a fingernail or shoe, and the death adder snake will do exactly that – add a lethal dose of death to your life. The air is safe. Although the largest hole in the ozone layer is growing towards us, so maybe it’s not…. Anyways, enjoy your stay in Australia mate!”

Him + Me

This is the happy couple. A week ago, they were a happy couple that went about their business watering the garden, folding the laundry, paying the bills and enjoying a weeknight movie just like any other couple. That was until a Friday night bike ride ended with a proposal of sorts. Hmm, it actually wasn’t a “proposal of sorts”. It was in fact a PROPOSAL!! Holy June bugs!

Now one half of the happy couple is slowly driving herself insane by looking at thousands of wedding photos, because you know what? She did not anticipate aforementioned PROPOSAL, and now feels light years behind schedule, especially considering that most girls have been planning their wedding since the age of 5.

Yet look how happy she is in the photo. She gets to spend the rest of her life with that guy. And not much has really changed. Their love remains … as does his attachment to the cell phone.
