1. This cat.
This makes me so happy.
1.5 is technology... because getting pictures on my phone from home has made this Southern transition so much bearable. And high fives to all my family members and friends who have gone out of their way to call, e-mail, write, text and generally show me a lot of lovin' as Will and I embark on our Southern adventures! In 3 days, we will have arrived in Louisiana exactly a month earlier!
Sounds like I need to bake something now in celebration...! Wink.
2. Arrested Development.
Have you read this article from First Things comparing Arrested Development to The Brothers Karamazov? Simply brilliant.
3. This photographer.
I am totally blown away by his talent. He's in the NJ/NY area, but it looks like he travels too! Check him out.
Even his "About Me" section is great -
THAT GUYS BEHIND THE LENS.
My name is Dan. Husband and brand-new father.
Photography for me is a tool that allows me to bring the *real* stuff in life to, well, reality. I find little importance in a photo unless it speaks to me about something more than the picture itself. As it turns out, I'm a philosopher and theologian first, and in a strange twist of life, I found that photography allowed me to clarify the wonder and awe of the world that engulfs us. The tradition of marriage goes so much deeper than the cake and flowers let on-- Indeed, the entire day stems upon the desire of man and woman to give themselves to each other entirely. There is certainly something passionate and revealing in that, and I hope to capture a glimpse of it.Swoon.
4. NFP Week.
Holler back, y'all! Katie (the beautiful co-founder of IuseNFP) is hosting an NFP story link-up if any of you have a story to tell...
Here's my post at The Mirror Magazine for why my husband and I use NFP.
I've never been a huge swimmer (more of a kick my legs around, walk back and forth around the pool), but there is something so magical about being pregnant and gliding through the water like baby beluga.
Will and I joined the gym at Tulane University (student perks!) and have been indulging in mid-day exercise. I'm feeling a lot better, it's easy on my joints, and I take my dandy time. I might not be burning ALL THE CALORIES, but I'm moving around and feeling great.
Also, I'm wearing my cute maternity swimsuit. Win!
