Photo Frenzy day three

In the history of the world I don't think anyone has ever stressed over a photoshoot more than I have over this one. It's going fine, but I still keep waking up in a cold sweat worrying that they're going to hate my photos. I was over there again today and I got some pretty good shots, so I think that they're going to be just fine, but the trickiest ones are still to come. On Wednesday afternoon I have to shoot the employees and then shoot the owner for the cover. That one is really freaking me out a bit. I think it will be fine, but I swear I'm going to have a party on Thursday when this is all over. I'm way excited about this job and I can't wait to see my work published, but doing something like this for the first time is always a bit nervewracking. I wish that I could share the photos I've taken now, but the contract I had to sign says that I can't show them until after the magazine is published. I'll definitely show them once I get a copy of the magazine though.

On another note, I have the best husband EVER!! He called me on his cellphone on the way home from work to tell me that he had a surprise for me. Actually, I think it was really supposed to be a Christmas present, but we always have a really hard time waiting until Christmas to exchange gifts with each other. We're funny that way.
When he got home he handed me a pretty red box and inside there was a beautiful adoption necklace! It's called a tangled heart necklace, and it's three intertwined hearts, meant to signify the birth mother, the adoptive mother and the baby. It looks like this:
It was such an incredibly sweet gift, I'm absolutely crazy about the necklace and I'm crazy about the sweet husband who gave it to me. :) Clarissa and her birth mother are always in my thoughts and it's nice to have a phsyical reminder of them as well.
So now I'm off to bed, hopefully to dream about something besides disasterous photo shoots and magazines with no photos in them. Maybe I'll dream that Clarissa is finally home and then I can wake up with a smile on my face. :)

That necklace is so sweet. Your DH is sweet for knowing that you would love it, you are sweet for having such a deep love for not only Clarissa but her birth mother and the whole situation. You bring me to tears repeatedly.
