It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted a blog entry!  I thought that once Summer was over, our lives would slow down, but I was definitely mistaken!  Life has been crazy between chasing a very active toddler, projects at work ramping up, all of the Fall and Holiday time activities, as well as picking up some new photography clients!  It’s hard to believe it’s November already!  This year is flying by so quickly, so this weekend, Aaron and I both cleared our calendars and spent some much-needed family time just relaxing and enjoying time outdoors.  Aaron’s grandmother and uncle both have farms just North of us.  He has many fond memories of visiting the farm growing up, and it’s a real thrill for him to be able to share such a special place with Nola.  The scenery out there is just breathtaking – I know I’ll be back many times to take advantage of this gorgeous Fall weather and stunning light in those picturesque settings!
