Antique Hydrangeas & Time Away

Hi everyone. 
I feel like it has been so long since my last post.
 Between homeschooling my son, working and photography school, the time has gone by so very fast. 
My mom has also been here over the last couple of days which has been so nice. We took my boys whale watching today and had a great time. This was their first time out in the middle of the ocean on a boat which is a bit of a shock being that we only live like 15 minutes from the beach. Note to self, more beach outings!! :) 
Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and show you these gorgeous hydrangeas I picked up from our new Whole Foods the other day. They are called Antique Hydrangeas and the heads on these beauties are huge! Their colors are actually on the darker side but I softened them up in PSE.

I also wanted to tell you all that I will probably be away from my blog for awhile. My creative focus is on my photography right now and getting ready for my first photo projects that are due soon. I am having such an amazing time with it!!

So until next time, take care and thank you all for your continued visits and support!
