A New Direction

When I started this blog four years ago my life was very different. I was in my last year at Weber State with the possibility of grad school in my future. I had a job I liked with people I loved, it was a pretty good set up. Fast forward to now and I have two degrees (BA and MFA) as well as a wonderful family with my husband and daughter. I could not have imagined a better life and I am grateful.

This blog was about the happenings in my life but now that I have another blog for my family. I've decided that this blog will be for my projects and thoughts on pop culture. Our family blog can be found at

I don't know if anyone reads this blog any more but I am going to keep writing anyway.

Next up: Halloween costumes.

One thing that people frequently comment on is Mina's dark hair.  All of her nurses mentioned it in the hospital and most of her family has said something about it.  I love how fuzzy and crazy it is after a bath.
After a few hours it calms down and flattens to her head
There has also been some discussion on who she looks the most like.

I think she is a good combination of both of us, she managed to get all the cute parts.
