You think you've seen me freak out on a shoot? Heard me hootin' and hollerin' over the light and how awesome it is? How everything is just 'OH MY GAWD!!!!' And then more yellin' and stuff...?
Well....you should have SEEN me last NIGHT!! OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!!!
Dave and I decided to do a family date night (we normally go on a just a mommy & daddy date night every Friday) to check out the sunflower fields at the Buttonwood Farm in Griswold. I have been looking forward to this for over a year, when the Marantz's did a shoot there. But I just missed it and they cut down all of the flowers. And so I waited!
Then all week it rained! BOO!! And so I waited again! And then with Friday's promise of sun I was internally freaking out all day, looking forward to it and even threatened to leave Daddy-O in the DUST if he came home even a minute past when I said I needed him there... that's how anxious I was to see this!
You know how there are those few things in life that you hold so highly in your brain as things you want to see with your own eyes? The crystal blue waters of a tropical island; works of art by artists like Picasso or DaVinci? Well, vast rolling fields of sunflowers pretty much tops the list for me!
Then add an old stone wall!
and warm delicious golden buttery light??????
Then add my FAMILY to the mix??
Man I am going into cardiac palpitation CITY just thinking about it again!!
Yeah. So it's supposed to be beautiful today but shyte tomorrow so GO ON and GO, check it out for yourself- they are selling bouquets of sunflowers for only $5, all proceeds are going to the Make A Wish Foundation- they have hay rides for only $5 same deal, for Make A Wish.
And then they have homemade ice cream!!! The coconut was incredible!!
I am going back on Sunday, scrapping all other plans and shooting - rain or shine- how cool would these be in the rain??
