TRINIDAD WEDDINGLast night I finished designing the wedding album for Amit & Gillian, whose wedding I shot in Trinidad last September. For those of you who don't know where Trinidad (& Tobago) is, (which I didn't), it is just off the northern coast of South America, near Aruba. Amit and Gillian are both doctors with practices in D.C. Gillian is originally from Trinidad so they opted to have a destination wedding there. I was thrilled at the opportunity to go somewhere completely new to me and Gary came along with me to help (which I desperately needed) and to have a little vacation. The wedding was wonderful and all of the guests were great to be around. We participated in many of the pre-wedding activities like a float through a bird sanctuary, a day cruise, a bus tour through Trinidad etc. The one thing that we didn't plan for was

HOW MANY OF ME? friend Erin Ogburn sent me this link this morning. It is statistically supposed to calculate how many people are living in the U.S. with your same name.

DIXIE CHICKS ROCK THE GRAMMY'SWhat a big F You the Dixie Chicks just gave to Bush and all of his cronies! With five Grammy's in one night, I feel so happy that their voices are heard and appreciated. Congratulations to the Chicks for speaking up and for finally receiving the recognition they deserve!

THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIAHas anyone else seen the previews for The Bridge To Terabithia? Well I've been watching these for the past few weeks and thinking, it's a kids movie but it looks so good. I suggested to Gary that maybe we should take my niece Zoe to see it but he thought it might be too scary. We mentioned the idea to Michael to see if he thought Zoe might enjoy the movie. Then we find out, oh Zoe went to the L.A. premiere of the movie and walked the red carpet and everything. I guess it wasn't too scary after all.Here she is with her friend Hayden and Hayden's dad, Ed Begley Jr.

GROCERY SHOPPINGGary and I just got home from the grocery store and you would think we had to feed like 8 people for a week. I've never filled a cart this full before. It was so heavy that I was weaving through the aisles like a drunk driver. We were not even finished shopping at this point.Then we were trying to guess just how much that amount of food would cost. Our guess was $210 but it turned out to be more than that. Seems like a lot to feed two people for a week.
