Friday Round-up | Long Island Family Photographer

Its been a really good week around these parts - temps rising to the 40's meant some outside time. So nice to be able to get out of the house a little bit. Of course there is snow on the forecast for next week. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!

So - some good reads!

Four resolutions for moms. These are good ones to remember.
