One of the Most Amazing Things

Image
Truly one of the most beautiful and amazing things that God created, Yosemite National Park, is seen here in this time-lapse photography video put together by several very talented people.  It starts slow at first, but at about 2mins30secs...wait for it...the music crescendos and you'll get goosebumps. I recommend you put this on full screen to watch it and not have anything going on in the background so it won't skip.

I have very sweet and happy memories of spending many summers here with my family while growing up in California...

 These memories include: driving through the hollowed-out redwoods, riding our bikes and feeding the deer in Yosemite Valley, camping in tents or in the "housekeeping" cabins, swimming in the clear, cold water of the Merced River and basking on the granite rocks in the summer heat, fishing with family and friends for trout and bass...

Three Things

Three things I love right now considering food and cooking--my amazing Calphalon saute pans that my husband got me for Christmas that give my food the perfect amount of crispness and browning w/o totally scorching it, Pam non-stick spray (NOT any type of store brand, seriously, Pam makes all the diff, including my aunt Pam) and lastly--this might sound gross but you'll get it if you get it--that wonderful feeling in your mouth when you take a gulp of fresh, cold water after downing a rich, heavy coffee, mocha, or hot chocolate, its cleans your palate and helps your breath a little :)

Oh yikes!

Alright, you made me do it.  I HAVE to blog NOW.  I just discovered this by making a comment on my mother's newly put-together blog that MY blog is in dire need of an update :)  Well here it is.  It's 2012, January 23rd.  We're still living in the same amazing, wonderful house in Tacoma, still working at the same jobs (Harbor Lights for me and Girvin for William).  Been attending a wonderfully new and exciting church called Destiny City Church here in Tacoma and loving it.  God has been very good to us, throughout all the craziness and busy-ness of life, through our jobs, home-making, relationally, financially, most recently birthdays, holidays, 4 Christmases, travel, SNOW and ICE and WIND...and...and...
For the new year I can finally say that we are finally trying officially to start a family.  Being married for five years and counting, I thought we would've had 2 kids by now (I thought that when we got married).  Right :)  Well I can also finally say I'm SO happy …
