I’ve been procrastinating.

I just couldn’t get myself to edit our vacation photos due to the fact that I have one billion snapshots to go through. It’s daunting to say the least. I packed my good DSLR and between the 5 of us, 5 iphotos are full of pics. Now that’s ridiculous.

I finally spent some time today sorting through my Lightroom folders. I don’t even want to admit how many hours I poured into this task. Let’s just say… I get the Bad Mom Award today. Ev might have watched more Tinkerbell movies than usual. I had know idea there were so many Tinkerbell movies. Wow.

While I still have more editing to do, here’s what I have so far.

What I Wore one day in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

  1. What an amazing family trip!! Your family is beautiful! And I love that first outfit! I am searching for a bathing suit for my teen daughter and love your daughter’s coral and black suit. Could you tell me where you bought that? Thanks!! Susan

  2. Gorgeous – your pictures, your family, your dress! We just got back from a cruise and I hear you about the tons of photos. They’re nice to have but finding the time to go through them really is daunting.
