  18. Hello, Did you ever attend UVU (but back when it was Uvsc)?
    I was looking over your blog and thought you looked kind of familiar. Then my girlfriend told me you had gone to Julliard for dance.
    I attended Uvsc for a a couple semesters a few years ago, and I remember a girl from one of my classes saying she had been accepted into Julliard for dance. If I remember correctly it was an english class.(not positive about this though.)
    So my question is, was this you?

  19. hi chris, i took a bunch of dance classes (through the modern dance department) at uvsc my senior year of high school before juilliard. maybe we met?

    thanks for reading!

  20. Hmmm, I guess it was probably someone else, as I never took any dance classes.

  21. Krystle

    I have secretly well now not so secretly become obsessed with your blog. It bring much happiness and many stress free moments to my day. I love you little dog Kingsley he is adorable and I am always left admiring your pretty head bands! Keep up the good posts as they inspire people (well at least they inspire me)


  24. What incredibly beautiful blog you have! My compliments!

  25. Hello! You really do have a beautiful blog and I have enjoyed reading it this morning. However, that's my photo you've posted without my permission and I would appreciate your removal of it from your blog. It's not legal to take a photo from flickr without the permission of it's photographer, and it is clearly stated that all rights are reserved on this particular photo. Thank you.

  26. Imkemper, i am terribly sorry for not seeking your permission to post this photo. i loved this photo when i came across it and thought linking the photo credit to you and your site would be sufficient but i realize now that sometimes that is not ok. i'll switch the photo right now. again, i am terribly sorry. i did not mean to offend!


  27. naomi,
    i really love these happy lists and your blog. my honey is a sailor and he just left this morning to spend two months in bahrain, which is not a long time but, like you, i cannot stand to be away for him much longer than a work day. we just moved back down south (we're texans) to new orleans from philadelphia and we're missing the northeast a ton (i was there for 5 years – 4 in upstate in ny)! i loved DC when we went to visit, but i'm loving seeing it through your eyes even more. thanks for posting all these beautiful pictures (esp of kingsley!) and giving us a glimpse of your lives!


  28. Naomi – no offense taken and I truly appreciate your quick action! I'm typically ok with granting permission to bloggers. Some photographers would be far more aggressive and I would hate to see an innocent act result in legal action. Again, thank you.

    i'm honored you used my happy list.
    happiness and joy need to spread, migrate and ooze into everyone's lives, hearts, actions.

    and great." ~Willa Cather

    i hope heaps upon heaps of happiness are in and continue to be in you and your families (dog included) lives.
