Five Years Later...

I recently went to my True Media account and came across the video I made of my and Michael's wedding over 5 years ago and I can't  believe how young we look!  I just thought i would share a it on the blog with a more recent montage of the two of us, just for fun.  Enjoy.

Mexico City and the Swine Flu

For anyone curious about Michael since he's in Mexico City right now during the outbreak of the swine flu, he's doing fine. He's actually living in a house with two doctors, so he's not too worried. For those of you interested in the epidemic, here's a link to an article about the swine flu and how deserted Mexico City was over the weekend because everyone stayed home. Michael even told me about his adventures on Sunday and of how he took the 45 minute bus ride to church to find out it had been canceled, waited at the bus stop for 30 minutes and watched as two buses passed right by him, and even got pooped on by a bird. Good thing their not dealing with a bird flu down there...

So, it's official.  Michael has decided to accept his admission into the UCLA Graduate School of Architecture Program, and needless to say I am anxious, excited and scared all at the same time.  We still have a lot to do before moving out to LA is August, such as graduate from University of Cincinnati in June, sell the house, pack up everything and find a new home, but we are excited to do something new and exciting.  We will surely miss Ohio and all that Cincinnati has to offer, but I think the trade off for wonderful weather all year round will be alright, not to mention the proximity to the beaches and to family back in Utah.  

I never would have guessed a few months ago when Michael started applying that we'd actually move to California but Michael is really excited about UCLA's Architecture program and things are going to be great, maybe not the shock of rent being more than double what it is now, but I'm sure we'll be more than happy!  Wish us luck and we'll keep you posted on our plans!

Pay It Forward

While looking at a friend's blog I couldn't help but get excited about this wonderful idea she had about paying it forward. It's a great way to spend some time thinking about someone else and getting those creative juices flowing for the benefit of others! So thanks Aubry for the motivation and here's how it works:
The 1st three people (and only those three) to leave a comment on this post will receive at some point during the next few months a handmade gift from me. If you don't live nearby, leave me your address on my email, jayna119@gmail.com or through facebook.
What your gift from me will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! But here's the catch: you must participate as well!
After leaving your comment you MUST write up a "Pay It Forward" post on your own blog to keep the fun, creativity and good-works going. So, as you wait for your own gift, you must be making gifts for your three friends who commented! Lets share the love and have fun!

April Showers

We've had some pretty days so far but we are preparing for our annual showers that hit Cincinnati every April.  My niece Aubree got into town just in time to see me finish my bout of food poisoning and let me not tell you about how much fun that was!  She is amazed by all the greenery around her (she just got here from Utah) but I have to remember that the rain is what keeps Ohio so green and pretty.  So we will be taking our umbrellas with us everywhere for the next week at least.  I think I can stand the rain if we get to look forward to all of the pretty flowers blooming in a couple of weeks.
