The Sunday R&R

Welcome to Sunday Trulovers!  How has your week been?  Mine has been a little of an odball week, with various projects throwing up unexpected turns which include the topics of wifi locations, tree roots, boudoir shoots as part of a healing process, drains, what is boho and my new iMac.

Yes the total geek in high heels has emerged this week as a new toy has arrived in the Trulove office.  The really sad part that I have been so busy, I unpacked it and it is sat on the desk just waiting for me.  So I have scheduled myself some Mac time this afternoon and I am off to go and play!  A word of warning in case random graphics and pictures start to appear on Facebook or Instagram.

But while I get my geek on, if you have missed anything last week be sure to catch up in The Sunday R&R.  Following on from The Sunday R&R last week, I had an extra post a little sneaky peek behind the scenes of the recent #teamamour boudoir shoot! – see here
