Our Life in Pictures
We continue to capture our lives on film with our awesome new camera. Ben took the above shot of me & I love how it turned out. We ordered a book on how to use our camera, so be on the lookout for some more creative shots. Thankfully, Panera was open Sat morning & we had a brainstorming session about The Million Miles Short Film Contest we plan on entering. I love telling stories through pictures & video, so telling OUR story will be like icing on the cake!
Cabin Fever at Its Finest
If you ever want to put your marriage to a test, try spending 3 entire days together iced in at home. I think we made it all the way to Friday afternoon (roughly 6 hrs.) before risking our lives on the icy roads just to get out of the house. We watched movies (The Invention of Lying, The Hurt Locker & District 9 which were all great), organized closets, fixed our running toilet, bought new toys with our x-mas money (I got a Shark Steam Mop & Ben got a Vizio Sound Bar) & hung out with friends that lived close by in order to keep our sanity intact.
End of an Era
This week, Ben will complete his supervision hours needed to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (a.k.a. the reason we have been in Memphis the past 2 yrs. after Ben finished his masters degree). Did I think this day would ever come? No. Would I have thought in a million years that we would want to stay in Memphis after Ben finished this? No. Is this a huge relief both financially and emotionally? Yes. Am I extremely proud of my amazing husband for going through this process so that he can be a better therapist? Yes!
Well, I can't blog about too much so that I'll have something left for Friday. Tomorrow is the premiere of the final season of LOST & I can't wait! Here's hoping that everyone has a fantastic week.
