Well, good news ~ I sure didn't have any trouble taking lots of pictures today! Over 200 actually. Yesterday my mom came to stay with us again. (She was here towards the beginning of the month too.) We ran errands with Michael so she could see the artsy Sam Flax store I always talk about. I did really like that sparkly cupcake picture holder. I might have to go back and buy that.. or just try to make one myself. Then we had dinner with Michael at Bob's Potatoes then walked around half of Downtown Disney, stopped for ice cream at Dairy Queen and watch The Hunger Games.

Today, Michael had to work both jobs, so he couldn't come to Legoland with us, but it was a lot of fun. And although we were initially bummed that the park was only open today from 10am-5pm, it gave us the perfect amount of time to do everything! I didn't bring our Canon T2i, but I felt that this picture I took with my mom's point-and-shoot had enough depth of field to make it appropriate for my blog. Plus, I really need to get back into the habit. I'm all caught up with printing out pictures from our time during Full Sail, so its time to start documenting more memories!

**& Michael started his own GoreFX special make up effects blog! Check it out.

Spirituality & Hope

I will admit, I have not really had any urge to take pictures within the past five weeks. At one point I began sewing together a travel journal for our trip to Los Angeles in November, but didn't like the pictures enough to show them off here. However, I have been working on something much more important ~ self improvement. After realizing that we only had five months until we moved (now only three and a half!), I absolutely knew that I had to take some drastic measures to ensure I do not start off yet another year with a negative mind and bad attitude, especially at the title page of our "new wonderful life" in LA. I'm not sure if the sun will always shine as bright as I imagine it will, but these past few weeks have greatly improved. Michael sometimes refuses to agree, simply because he doesn't want to jinx it, ha. I have begun reading (and taking notes from) Christian books about marriage and spirituality and hope*. And listening to Joyce Meyer seminars on CD help a lot too. As does praying. In fact, you can pray for me if you want!

I'm not sure how much longer I will be on my photography hiatus. Hopefully, no longer than another month- especially if my mom and I are spending a week in Atlanta with my cousin, Jessica and her kids. I have to take lots of pictures of them. That's not really an option. They are just too cute.

*Books I've Read:
Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married ~ by Gary Chapman
Spiritual Stuff You Can Get from High School Musical ~ by Steve Russo
90 Days in Heaven ~by Don Piper (I'm in the middle of this one!)
