I'm Still Here

I haven't posted in a really long time! Same ol' excuse...I have pictures but it is hard to get them while I am at work, and life has been so crazy that I haven't had a chance to do it at home!
I have a whole ton of stuff to blog about, so don't will be coming soon! I just wanted you to know that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet or anything!!!

All The Difference

The last time Jon and I were in Utah, we stopped and visited some people at a store he used to work at. The store is the only real wood turning store in the world!!
While we were there, he let me pick a block of wood for my very own piece of art!!
It was just a giant cubed chunk of wood when I picked it - and he turned it into this amazing piece!
He named it "All The Difference"
I love my sweet husband so very much - he is without a doubt the most talented person I know!!
When I was showing this picture to some people at work, one of the ladies said, "what can your husband not do?"
I couldn't come up with anything!! He is seriously amazing!!!
I am a lucky girl!!!

Julie & Julia - One Of My Favorites!!

I can honestly say that it has been a long time since I have seen a movie as fun, hilarious, heartfelt, moving and inspiring as Julie & Julia. I laughed and cried (yup, that sounds super cheesy, but it's true!!) and came out of the theater with the desire to be a better person and accomplish something amazing.

The movie simultaneously tells the story of Julia Child and Julie Powell.

Julia Child - as you probably already know - was a cooking legend! She was a brilliant chef, brilliant on television, and had an amazing cookbook, but there is so much more to her than that. She was a passionate person who loved her sweet husband more than anything and loved life no matter what! Still, she was not perfect, she got discouraged, she had her heart broken, she was cranky sometimes, but she was an inspiration.

Julie Powell is a 30-year old government secretary dealing with the after effects of 9/11 - and she hates it. She feels like she is drowning in her meaningless life. She finds her solace in her husband and in food. She loves cooking and soon gets the idea to cook through Julia Child's entire cookbook in a year. During the year she gets overwhelmed, disappointed, and through it all, she finds herself.

Both of these women are amazing, and they have amazing husbands who love and support them through it all. It is hard on them sometimes, but they never stop loving their wives and being excited for them, and their relationships grow stronger and stronger.

This movie inspired me to follow my passions and to cherish my husband.

I encourage anyone who loves romance, fun, and food to watch this movie. I encourage anyone who is married and wants to see a movie where marriage is valued, encouraged, and portrayed as the beautiful bond it is to watch this movie.

Bon Appetit!
