P.S. I've really missed blogging and all of you.

These are making me seriously consider going gluten free again (which I really should anyway), just so I have an excuse to eat these daily. As far as that whole health thing is going... yeah. I haven't really been exercising, because I still have NO time. Evan and I went on a mini vacation to Ocracoke Island-- which was amazing-- where I shot a wedding, and now have a ton of editing to do plus this crazy time consuming job. Compared to this winter where I had nothing to do I can't really complain! But after all that editing is over I'm rewarding myself with these, and then I'll go exercise. That's the way to do things, right?

I was taking the time to de-stress at work a little bit by reading through Outside Magazine's website, when I came across an article titled "The Life List 2010". What I found is this. Someday it's going to happen when the time is right, and I'm really looking forward to it. Impatiently.

"The world is reachable now, even on a budget. In the past year, on teachers' salaries, my wife and I have been to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, France, and England; the year before that, Egypt, Corsica, Italy, and New Zealand. We backpacked and cycled, but we also applied for residency in New Zealand so we could work there and stay longer. In Egypt, we were volunteers in a film re-creating an ancient voyage in the Red Sea. I taught for a summer in Florence. But our real find was a small sailboat in the Mediterranean. Every summer, for about $6,000, we buy a boat and sail for weeks along the coastline from France to Turkey, enjoying the islands, coves, and medieval walled ports. We're seeing the best for almost nothing, because in the end we sell the boat for about the same amount. We see places the landlubbers don't—and we're spared the crowded umbrellas and banana hammocks."

*By the way, the concert was incredible. In.cred.ible. The last song they played was The Only Moment We Were Alone. Holy shit, it made me cry. There's nothing like it.
