Our weather last week, that had been so gorgeous... ceremoniously went to crap on Friday with 35-40 mph winds and sideways rain. And my hopes for a gorgeous day to shoot at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival were swirling in the bottom of the drain. *insert very sad face here*
So when I woke up to heavy grey clouds... my heart was more than a little heavy. I have had Lisa and her family on the books for months- and I'm unavailable the next two weeks for any kind of a make-up- so it HAD to happen this weekend or we'd miss our window to shoot them in the tulips.
Apparently- we five were a force to be reckoned with- because not only did it NOT rain on us- but the sun even flashed us a smile for a bit! (of course that's not to say that after we wrapped and I was walking around enjoying the views that the rain chased me all the way back down south....)
Lisa and I have talked a lot recently about the fact that we've lost several folks close to us the last 6 months- and that we all need to stop procrastinating- stop waiting for the perfect hair cut or perfect outfit or size..... we need to just BE- be happy and be present- and have photos snapped of us- with our families without worrying if it's perfect. LIFE isn't perfect- make the most of what you have-every single day-smile- hug and kiss those around you- and it will become more perfect than you first thought.
