Confessions and Crazy Confessions

So I stumbled across an adorable show and I thought I'd share.

Preface:  I am a huge Austen fan.  Like HUGE fan.  Read all her novels more times then is probably sane... all of which of course happened before baby.  Thus there are times I get some deep jones-ing for a good adaptation.  That craving hit me the other day and what else is there to do but:
 "To the internet!"

and I found an adorable adaptation called "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries".

If you are a sucker for Austen and related awesome then check it out.  Set in modern days and super animated and pretty fabulous...

Here is to binge watching the 3 min episodes.  OH I forgot the best part: they are mini episodes so for me with my now limited free time I can make a 3-4min video !!

Live. Love. Loud.

Johnson Park: Raleigh NC :Aubrey and Chris

Aubrey was new to the area.  Unsure of where things were or what there was to do.  In a search to find new friends connections she met Chris.  Almost three years later and still together they found me!  It was a pleasure to get to know these two on a pretty wonderful winter day, but don't take my word for it (I'm a bit crazy with my winter love)... take a look!

They were such a ball to shoot!  I swear we never stopped laughing the whole time!

Live. Love. Loud.

Time swiftly makes its way ahead.

As we all are enjoying the season, it seems to slip by.  My December was a whirl wind in both great and terrible.  I'll start with the terrible cause I'm of the mind face the bad and get it over with.

My CPU failed.  It died.  I took it to see my sister (spoiler that's a great thing) and tried to use it the day we got back and it was dead... not worth going into the details but if you were wondering where I have been I've been back to the prehistoric times of no CPU!  EEEEk... I know I was jonesing pretty hard core!

The great: I got to see my sister.  We, Chris, Luna and I, made our way down to the Cayman Islands (poor me... I know!) to see my dear and lovely sister, her husband and brand new baby!  It was great to spend 10 days with her and the setting wasn't terrible either!

Now I'm ready to start a new year.  Look freshly at my goals, budgets and plans to get this year started off right!
