What Makes This Life so Amazing?

When Sean and I decided to start a blog to keep family and friends up to date on all the changes going on in our lives, we thought long and hard about a name for the blog. It took me a while to finally settle on "This Amazing Life".
Tonight, as I read the title on my blog dashboard, I wondered "What makes This Life Amazing?"

I think the answer is as simple as the silver and crystal ring I said, "Yes" to over six months ago.

We decided it was going to be amazing. Yes, we had some hurdles to overcome - just living in the same time zone was a huge one! The Navy being the next big one we're learning to cope with day by day. But we decided long ago that it was going to be amazing. And ya know what? I'm not disappointed. It's still an amazing adventure.

It's not always an easy journey, but it is an amazing life.

Super Busy - but a great weekend!

Sean and I had a great weekend last week- but things continue to be very busy out here.

Last weekend, we got to go to my first Disney Fan Convention! Now, I won't say I'm in Disney withdrawl up here, but I do miss being within driving distance to a park (and having an annual pass in my back pocket). This was so great! We were able to recapture those feelings from our first trips together last year  (Disneyland over Christmas, and Disneyworld over my birthday last January).  It was a blast! We got some artwork from Robin Hood SIGNED by one of the animators, so I'm looking forward to getting them framed and putting them up! We scored a bunch of free movie posters too, and got to do some networking.

Things are still busy - that was our first full day together in weeks, but we make the best of the time we have. :)
