10 pounds in a 5 pound sack

That’s my life.  Always trying to do WAY more than is possible in a limited amount of time.  And it’s Terry’s favorite thing to say to me.  He accuses me of trying to squeeze too much into a day.  Now all of the kids say it.  But this Labor Day we managed to actually get that 10 pounds in there!

Starting with Andrew proposing to Jes at 4:45 am on Friday morning–complete with a rose, sparkling wine, and down on one knee–before they caught their flight to Tampa.  And ending with their flight back on Tuesday evening.  Oh yeah, they are all about squeezing as much living as possible into the moment.

In between the proposal and their flight back to NY on Tuesday, we squeezed in two boat rides to swim in Homosassa Springs; a four day visit from Jes’s future in-laws, a scalloping expedition, a party with Darin and Kathryn, a cookout on Sunday with most of the Florida relatives (over 20 people attending), two corn hole tournaments, a photo session for engagement pictures, oh, there’s probably more. Totally did that 10 pounds in a 5 pound sack!

I’ve put a bunch of pictures here for those that attended the festivities.  I put them in gallery style so those readers who really don’t care about these family events can just skip them.  There’s also some outtakes from the engagement photo session.  Pretty sure they won’t be using these!

And what did you do Labor Day weekend?  How much living did you manage to squeeze into that 5 pound sack?

    Love the pics! I think their engagement pic should be with Andy and the rifle!
    It was so good to meet you and your family and friends! Thank you-we had a great time!

  2. Ha ha ha! The rifle (what was he doing with it anyway?), very ‘American Gothic – The Homosassa Version’. I, personally love the shot of them next to the water with him kissing her forehead. So sweet.
