Not Ordinary

As we live life day by day it can feel somewhat ordinary.  Nothing spectacular happens; we're creatures of routine.  Lately, I've been trying to downsize my iPhoto library.  As I look over thousands of pictures to decide which ones I can delete --  I'm struck.  

Life isn't ordinary.  
Life is spectacular.

In the span of just a few short months I . . .
stood under this sunset . . .

attended the inauguration of America's first African-American President . . .

 witnessed the eternal sealing of two of my favorite friends . . .
And . . .

used modern technology to make my parents laugh so hard they cried.

Even in it's simplest enjoyments. . . 
Life.  Is.  Spectacular.

Life is definitely not ordinary :). I just love reading your blog! Just so you know. All of your opinions, knowledge, humor, etc. I love it all! Also I thought it was funny that Reid is over 19 lbs! That is impressive. My Sadie is only 18.5 lbs and she is one! Granted, she is a tiny one year old. Anywho, thanks for being smart and writing a good blog! P.S. I always spell check when I leave comments on your blog too! Haha!
