It's the perfect day for:

1. The Jockey Lot. I must say it was a successful morning. While I came away with no books, I did find a mini-tripod for $5. And I got to see a hot air balloon crash into a tree. The strangest thing was it happened in slow motion...luckily everyone was okay. But there you go. FACT: You can see anything at the jockey lot.

2. Book Club.

3. The ATL.

There's a huge window in the office and on the other side of the parking lot there's a huge field. I can see a good portion of the field from where I stand. I find myself there for minutes at a time, just watching. And there are days like today when the wind is blowing with a fierceness that takes your breath away. And there are horses too. They can feel the electricity. And it's not just electricity. Today it's clear that everything is doing what it is supposed to do. They're crying out to their Maker. And at that moment, I felt so unbelievably small. And I knew that even if I weren't standing there, all in my vision would still be giving praise to the God that created it. All because He is who He says He is. He is Truth. He is constant.

"Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made." - John 1:3

Oh Wedding Day.

Jonny and Ragan - Engagement Party

The McDizzles are getting married today. It's one of those days when you look back over everything and you think, "man, we really are growing up." It's amazing and exciting to see people who you have shared so many great memories with moving into a new step in their lives. I know I've said it a thousand times, but I really love my friends.

Sniff. Tear...

And now, I'm going to go party with the Crew.

Feel Good Inc.

Do you know why hugs are so great? It takes only 20 seconds of contact for your brain to release mood lifting hormones. And why the crap do I feel a little better after a good cup of coffee? Apparently, caffeine can improve your mood for 2 to 6 hours (although I'm not too stoked about caffeine's other affects on my perhaps I'll stay away). And did you know that 85 percent of women say they feel better after a good cry? Moreover the average woman has five crying spells per month (hmm...i don't cry that much. I might have a crying spell once every five months. Maybe I should watch more chick flicks.).

UNLEASH 2007, originally uploaded by Lanna Grace.

UNLEASH was amazing. I had a ton of fun and got to meet many amazing people. Plus I got the added bonus of photographing the event. I had fun. Some photos are on flickr.

With temperatures rising at over 80 degrees yesterday. I realized that Spring is coming whether I'm ready or not. And although we barely had a winter (I promise I'm not bitter...much), I'm accepting that it's time for that Spring Thang. And somewhere between the summer songs of "Sweet Emotion" - Aerosmith and "Get Ready" - Rare Earth, I said "bring it on Spring!" "You will not thwart me with your pollen. Your humid itsreallyhardtobreathe heat has no effect on me. This is my year, Spring. This is where I take you down!"

Yeah, it went something like that.

Back with a Vengeance.

I just bought a huge lot of 120 film on eBay. I'm excited. I'm also excited that I have 3 rolls of film taken with Ivan (the Mamiya c330, yes I named him...back off), waiting to be developed.

In other photography news, I'll be photographing UNLEASH. NewSpring's very first conference. I'm pretty pumped. It's going to be awesome. I really work at the best place ever.

And for those of you who know me in real life...Daddy is doing a lot better. Not completely 100%, he's got quite a ways for that. But he's doing a lot better...any prayers directed our way would be greatly appreciated.

The End.
