See that picture up there? That’s a picture of us, at work, doing our actual job on Wednesday. We were shooting photos for Modcloth’s swimsuits (more to come, but MAN do their swimsuits rock for all body types). And that meant we got to spend a very warm spring day by the pool, which was pretty magical. Plus, Maddie and I went to see Beyoncé on Monday night and it was AMAZING. (Jareesa, who flew out from Minneapolis for the shoot, is going this weekend, so don’t you worry about her.)
Which was good, because while life can look super perfect in a picture like that, it was not an easy week. I’m dealing with a family emergency, I’m still up to my ears in boxes post move, and I’m starting to hit my limit on living with two tiny children in near squalor. I can’t decide if I should just throw money at the problem to get all the functional things we need. You know, shelves for the bathroom—who puts in a pedestal sink with not a single cabinet I ask you?—or to just continue trying to make do. Okay, fine, typing that sentence convinced me it was time to take a trip to IKEA, where particleboard will solve any number of woes.
