Happy song, happy Friday.

Hi friends,
Happy Friday!! Someone shared this video on Facebook a few days ago & I thought I would pass it on to you. It is one of the happiest songs I've heard in a while. Avalanche City is a group from New Zealand, their album Our New Life Above the Ground is available here. Hope you enjoy.

Canon Tupac?

One thing on my to-do list for yesterday was giving my (fairly) new Canon Rebel a name. Naturally, my first instinct was to google "greatest rebel of all time". Yahoo-Answers suggests (in this order): Jesus, Henry VII, and Tupac. Seriously google? Note to self, google doesn't have all the right answers. In fact, in this scenario google and yahoo working together still came up short. Oh well. Moving on.

It's been raining a lot. A whole week without sun makes for a sad week. Yesterday was the first day it wasn't gloomy and dark so I thought it would be a great time to be outside and take a walk downtown. These photos were taken at an Episcopalian church. The architecture and landscape of this chapel on the square is really something special.

I hope your week was filled with more sunshine than grey.

2012, say what?

Friends, it's 2012!! I can hardly believe it's true.

2011 was an eventful year: I threw a successful surprise party, visited lots of new places, started this blog, graduated from college, got my first real job & moved to Alabama. Most of all, I learned so much about myself and other people. I would say I even learned a little about the "real world" (whatever that is, right?).

The end of the year tied up nicely with the holiday season spent in Florida hanging out with people I love a lot. There was lots of laughter, silliness, family and friends. It doesn't really get much better than that.
I hope your year was rounded out in a way that made you smile.

A few memories:


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *



It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season - like all the other seasons - is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them, and that's the end of this particular story.” -Lemony Snicket, The Lump of Coal (via this fun blog)

Cheers to a New Year.
It's going to be great. I just know it.
