I was beginning to think that this session was cursed. I am never sick and this year when I got it, I got it good. I had to cancel my first session with this birthday girl when after a week of a high temperature, I came down with a not so nice ear infection. I would rather have the flu than an ear infection. Then on the eve of the reschedule date, I was kissing my son goodnight on his top bunk and on the way down, I rolled my ankle. I was convinced I twisted it. The next morning I could barely walk down the stairs, I was in that much pain. Walking on flat ground was better, and knowing that it was this little sweeties first birthday photos, putting it off again wasn’t an option. I knew I could rock on through it, as long as she wasn’t on the run. Lucky for me she wasn’t that mobile. My first major in college was “Athletic Training,” and the first thing we learned was R.I.C.E: Rest, Ice, Compress and Elevate, which is what I did when I got home. Turns out taping football player ankles wasn’t for me and I switched majors
Well, this birthday girl did great considering the cooler weather and the fresh dose of snow. Interesting fact about our location, this small church, St Peter’s Episcopal Church in Millbrook, was the location of Natasha Richardson’s funeral. A small but stunning Church.
