All You Need Is Love

Some of you may know that Drew and I travel to Sudan on occasion, and if you're wondering why, watch this:

I've been meaning to post about our involvement with Cornerstone Children's Home in Southern Sudan for some time, but haven't gotten around to it until now. I'm sure I'll write more about it in the future, but for now, please feel free to gush over this video that our friend, Ross, made for my brother and his wife as a wedding present from the kids.

Can't Wait!

I just read over on Joanna Goddard's Blog that Anthropologie is launching a wedding brand in the Spring of 2011!! I wonder if Drew will understand my need to postpone our wedding until next summer... :) But seriously, bridal gowns, jewelry, shoes, invitations, decorations... Can you imagine? I can't and that's why it's so exciting!

I swear, this was my idea. Somehow, the designers at Anthro got into my brain and thought- hey, she's right, a wedding line would be GENIUS! Part of me is so excited right now, and part of me is disappointed that my wedding will fall one year too early! Is that ridiculous? I mean, sure I'm still jazzed to be getting married... but this entire time I've been saying how much easier this process would be if Anthropologie would only create wedding dresses, invites, shoes, etc (as if I could afford all of that... but that's besides the point).

Now if they would only offer gift registry before June...

Oh what to do... Yesterday, I started reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. You guys, it is so good. I can't put it down. But I'm facing a predicament in that, I am currently halfway through the book. I could easily finish it tonight, and I have the urge to do so. However, if I choose to finish it, then that will mean that it will be over. In 24 hours I will have read a book that I could have let myself enjoy for a few more days. Do you ever do that? Regret reading a book too quickly?

So, do I stop now to prolong my enjoyment? Or do I let myself be completely wrapped up in the story that I finish it in a few hours?

If I do finish it tonight (and I probably will...), can you recommend some books so that I don't feel guilty over letting myself read this one too fast?

Ok, I'm going to read just one more chapter for today... or five.
