Easter Egg Obsession

For Easter we staged a little easter egg hunt for Lucy in our apartment. She LOVED it!! She opened each egg over and over again hoping there would be something inside each time. This was the first holiday she's really gotten excited about. To this day, she still goes nuts when she sees an easter egg!


So lately I've been on what one might call a personal journey. I haven't "arrived" anywhere yet, but I'm definitely still "in-route" (if you will). My life, like many of yours has gotten increasingly busy, stressful and ridiculously crazy. Throughout all of this I have been striving to find something to calm me and give my mind a break, but also to help me feel more grounded. I was at a convention recently where they discussed the benefits of personal meditation. I really tuned in to the idea that in order to "become one" with yourself, or in other words, to listen to what your spirit and your body are telling you, you must take time to silence every all the chaos around you(including your mind) and just be. I don't know. I can't really explain it, but something about that just really hit home to me. I was thinking about where I go to meditate and where I can feel inner peace, and the Temple is the first place that popped in my mind. Enjoy this picture I took during Christmas time. As the journey continues I'll keep you informed on how it's going.




I know this entry is going to STUN some of you, but yes, we are still alive! I have been so busy that blogging has gotten pushed to the bottom of the totum pole (if you know what I mean). I have to begin by thanking those of you who do periodically check my blog to see if I did by chance post any new or exciting things-- and I am very sorry that I have diappointed you so many times. Please forgive.

Our little indian

I thought I'd try something new and let you see this video my brother and sister made of Lucy during Thanksgiving. I haven't dared to do video before, but this one was so cute! Over the past few months Lucy has turned into a little entertainer. Whenever she has an audience, she turns on the charm and will do anything to make you smile. We hope you enjoy :o)
