{Off to the land of corn}

I'm off to Iowa to do a massive 4 days of photo sessions with clients.

Iowa will always hold a special place in our heart. The 5 years there, as poor students while Bret went to Veterinary school, are years we look back at fondly. We recall how creative we had to be with our very limited funds; we hold dear our friendships we made there with all the other poor medical school/law school/veterinary school families, as well as the wonderful church family we had there.

It was in Iowa where our relationship as a couple became so much stronger and our family learned to really rely on each other.

Yes, I am excited to go back, but I'm so very sad to be leaving my little family here in California.

They will be fine. The girls will be fine even if their hair isn't quite the way I like it. I'm sure they will all love the junk food they normally wouldn't get if I were here and the time they will spend with Bret and my brother Adam.

You can bet I've laid out their clothes for each day and typed up a daily schedule (my goodness we are a busy family!).

Iowa here I come!
