i couldn't believe it. there i was---all set to gather my things for my flight to boise for a weekend of work--go to double check departure time, and what do i find? i'm not scheduled to leave until next week. next week? next freaking week?!!! i needed to be in boise by the next day for work at 9am. the best part? non-refundable. good-bye $200. looks like the 6 hour drive to boise i was so proud of myself for avoiding this time around would come to pass after all. on no sleep. my eyes were already bloodshot. sigh. martin and i brainstorm, what's the best way to go about this little venture i was now referring to under my breath as the boise weekend from you know where (i'm so bold). we talk to our clients, and are able to push back sessions until 2pm the next day. martin and i would make an early 6am departure from provo. all would be well.
then it turned out a lot better than well. not only did martin and i get to spend some much needed quiet time together (girls were left home with grandparents) on the drive, we also got to meet trish and justin. then we got to spend the entire afternoon with them. trish and justing were so easy going and lovable, it was more like hanging out with friends than work. martin and i pushed ourselves creatively. we drove to a middle of nowhere type location (my favorite sort!) per justin's brilliant suggestion. and we got some of the loveliest photos we've taken.
so even though we turned right back around for a quick drive back home to our babies, logging in 12 hours of driving in one day total. martin and i arrived home feeling refreshed. that's what having wonderful clients can do for you. thanks trish and justin, let's do this again real soon (as in april for your wedding).
