I love Jane Austen

I am Anne Elliot!

Take the Quiz here!

I was quite surprised. I always pictured myself as an Elizabeth Bennett :)

4 Generations

My 86 year old grandmother was in town last week for my cousin's wedding so we took the opportunity to take some pictures of our 4 generations of womanhood. Let me say she is absolutely amazing. She exercises every day, is computer savvy, and of course keeps up on politics. Just last March she even traveled to Israel. I'm proud to be carrying her mitochondria and passing it on to Suede. Thanks to my sister the photographer. It's always nice to have a professional around.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

It's been absolutely wonderful returning to my home of Virginia after a seven year excursion in Utah in which I gained both an awesome husband and a wonderful daughter. I did enjoy my time there, but I really never expected to miss it this much when I came home. Here's a short portion of what I miss about that Beehive state inspired by Leslie's recent post.

1. The Sowby Fam
2. Huge looming mountains with snowcapped tips
3. Beautiful temples around every bend of highway
4. An excess of great music concerts (played and watched)
6. Did I mention the SNOW?
7. Being able to walk to church (instead of driving 40 min.)
8. Hiking
9. Rock climbing OUTSIDE
10. Great bike trails
11. Sunday drives on the alpine loop
12. Many nights of debate and fun with the Wittusens
13. Sunday dinners at the Orchard's

Leslie I must say, and I never thought I would, I heart Utah as well!

She has potential!

When Suede gets excited, and then you watch it slowed down to 70%, it looks like she is conducting a symphony. So here it is in full score. This is just a teaser for her feature film. Enjoy!
