Catching Up

Well, hello world! Western District Youth Convention is now over. WOW. Can we say EXHAUSTED?!? I think Youth Convention is always exhausting, but on top of that, Evy’s Tree had a booth so that really made the week MUCH more tiring. And then poor Brandon is even more exhausted. He didn’t get home until, get this, SIX AM this morning. Right, that’s 6 AM, for those of you who thought I wrote it wrong the first time. ha. The kiddos were bouncing on our bed at 8 AM this morning, {and will be crying their eyes out shortly since they went to sleep at midnight last night and Jake didn’t nap at all yesterday} so here the kids and I are sitting in the family room watching old Disney re-runs, trying not to be too loud so Brandon can get just a little more sleep. {Currently we have this one on. Next will be this one. Don’t you just LOVE those old movies?!?}
I have a TON of thoughts swirling around in my brain today. I have wanted to blog at least a dozen times this week regarding different things. I really wish there was like 30 hours in a day. But if there was, I’m sure I’d still lack for time. ha. 
I just wanted to show you a beautiful picture from the Sam Hassas Evy’s Tree spring photo shoot. Have you checked them out yet? If not, you must!! Anway, here’s my favorite image from the shoot:
We were escaping the rain and found the coolest old vintage shack. Sam is ULTRA creative, in case you haven’t figured that out. :)
{Side note…have I told you that I lost 10lbs doing weight watchers?!? Well, I have, and I’m just a couple lbs away from what I was when I got pregnant with Jake, but why in the world do I still look like I need another 10lbs in these pictures?!? Please don’t comment on that! ha.}

We are running out the door to catch up on life a little {which is basically code for getting the car washed, grocery shopping, etc, etc.}, but I always wanted to remind all of you San Diego area people that I will be down there very shortly! PLEASE come see me and stop by the Evy’s Tree booth! I would love to catch up! Here’s all the info:

Lastly, I just want to leave a couple of my favorite scriptures with you in lieu of a beautiful Easter Sunday coming up. 

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”
Romans 5:8
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay”
Matthew 28:6

I am so thankful for the death, burial and resurrection, aren’t you? My hope and prayer for you this Easter week is that you feel the power of the resurrection more this year than you ever have. It will change you life, that is for certain! 

God bless you all!

PS… Brooke {rightleft studios} and I are working on updating the blog. We’re just testing a couple little things out, so hang in there with us, its slowly coming together. :) An as for combining Evy’s Tree and Family blog: no can do. We thought about it and thought about it, and for now we’re going to keep it separate. Business is business, family is family. I HAVE to draw some boundaries or else I will go nuts….and you, as my followers, probably will too! ha. :) xoxo
