I finally did it!! I got my second one. I've been talking about it for a long time, maybe about six year or so and about three years ago when I was in China I was given this name: Jie Ni and decided then that this is what I wanted...and I finally went and did it last night, and I love it! So I'm already thinking of what I can do next, because I'm sure there will be one. The answer to the question you are all probably thinking...no it didn't really hurt, just kind of felt like a pinch.

Not to much going on in life right now. Same old I guess. Got a few weddings coming up, one that I'm taking pictures at. I'm going to be doing some family photos soon, and just sold another print today. Josh and Erika are engaged. Work is great still, so that's all good news.

Life is just really good right now. God is more amazing every day. It blows me away how much he loves me and some days I'll admit its hard for me to grasp that concept...especially with my past and just stupid things I've done, I have a God who loves me no matter what. An unconditional love that I don't deserve, wow. Its great to see the blessings that he gives me, even the smallest ones take my breath away and really make me stop and think and thank Him. Its awesome to see something good and beautiful come out of every situation.

Ok off to bed.

I wonder

I wonder...
Do you ever think of me...as often or as little as I think of you?

Do you ever think of where I am...where I have been or where I will go?

Do you ever think of who I have become?

Do you ever think of all the good memories...or just the bad ones?

Do you ever think if I was ok?

Do you ever think of what our lives would of been like if we never met?

Do you ever think of the impact that you have had on me...good or bad?

Do you ever miss me?

When you looked at me, what did you see?

Spent a week in Maryland with Sara, Jay and Jed. So wonderful to finally meet my newphew. When I got there Dad, Sue and Biz were there...then when I was leaving I got to see my mom, who I haven't seen in almost a year and a half.

Nice relaxing week, just haning out and taking naps with the baby. Sara and Jay are both doing great, good to see them and spend some real quality time together. Miss them so much.

Went back to work this week, a bit crazy and stressful but finally the week is over. Just kicking back and relaxing this weekend. Went to Carmel last night to walk around, and Santa Cruz today. So awesome up there, reminds me of Vermont! Ohhh how I miss Vermont.
