My (non-facebook) Status:

I am happy.

Not ALWAYS-but right now, at this moment I am.  And I am having more of these moments, more often.  Which I like very much.  

I have more hope.  I have more motivation.  I feel closer to my Savior.  I feel the need to be kinder to people.  I notice the beauty of the earth and sky every single day, I almost have the feeling like I have never seen something as beautiful/amazing/unique as "this".  I talk to myself in the car, and it's not to yell at the guy who cut me off. (usually)  I make silly faces to myself all the time. (The latter 2 mean "happy" for me, not "looney" I promise.)

I am grateful for an abundance of blessings in my life and for what I know to be true, and that is what gives me hope and joy in my life. 

Just wanted you to know. :)

Spring Break Part 1

Last week, I had a week off for spring break!  One of the perks of working at a college, is I get some nice breaks!   I met my parents in Las Vegas, and then on to California for some relaxation and time with my parents.  It was such a nice week to just relax.  
What would a trip to Ca be without a stop at the beach? Even if it was a little cold! :) Pics of Las Vegas to come next!

Horse With No Name

I have adopted him.  Informally of course, since he lives across the street from where I work.  But he seems lonely, so I think he has adopted me too.
And he makes a darn fine model for my last "Portfolio" project for my photography class, if I do say so myself.  Isn't he beautiful?
{These are photoshoped as well to make the details stand out, and I tried some effects for fun.}

Just in case you haven't laughed yet today...

I can't think of anything cuter than this.  (I want one!)
