Back and Better Than Ever?

Ok, I'm back to the blog.  I won't promise anything, but I fully intend to post more than the 20 times I did in 2012.  That is just terrible.  Since I last blogged at the beginning of November, I have been so incredibly busy.  It's not an excuse, just the truth.  So what has happened since then?

Well, we had an amazing 10th anniversary vacation.  I am truly blessed with a wonderful wife.  I had my photography exhibit  and that went amazingly well.  I feel so honored to not only be asked to have my works on display, but that people actually bought some stuff.  My pictures are good enough for people to want to pay for them and display them in their home!  It feels so good and yet, I can't believe it!  The Christmas season was equally amazing with a Disneyland trip and the normal Christmas awesomeness.  And of course New Years was wonderful as always with our always fun group of friends.  

Jess and I were talking about how compared to the last couple of years, 2012 was a pretty damn good year.  2010 and 2011 were filled with so much heartache that the great times of 2012 were even more appreciated and needed than would could ever imagine.  Here is to hoping that 2013 is just as wonderful if not even more wonderful than 2012.  I mean, we can always hope, right?

I certainly have not given up on my goal to watch all my movies in alphabetical order.  In November I moved on to the letter C and because I was so busy work-wise, got to watch a bunch of them.  But because I was so busy, I didn't have a chance to write about them.  Then December hit and because I was so behind on actually writing the reviews, I didn't keep watching films because I didn't want to get even further behind on reviews.  Thus, my movie viewing was kind of put on hold until I could write my reviews.  So, next blog post will be short reviews of what I have watched since the last review and I will TRY to stay on top of it.  Probably.  Maybe.

Welcome back to the world of blogging. Having your photography on display and for sale must have been a thrill. If I were to watch all of my movies in alphabetical order, I would take about two days and finish. I don't own a lot. Happy 10 years to you two.
