2. I went to lunch today with my girl friends at a Thai restaurant. It was so overdue and I made me realize even more so that I desperately need to spend more time with them.
3. It snowed for about 5 minutes in Cincinnati during rush hour that resulted in a 3.5 hour drive home in traffic. People were driving like it was a blizzard and the snow wasn't even accumulating.
4. My husband went to a concert tonight that I got him tickets for as one of his Christmas gifts.
5. I started work in an ICU at a hospital in the area.
6. Spring semester starts Monday and I need a longer break, but I'm excited to see all the nursing girls again.

The mother (I'm assuming) was crying and the daughter (again, assuming) reached out for her mother's hand and at the moment they embraced each other all I could think about was wanting to be holding my camera and capturing such a beautiful moment. I think when people are experiencing times of adversity and choose to embrace it, pull together, and make it into a positive is one of the most beautiful processes of life. I just wanted to capture that in a photograph.
12. I am officially over winter and ready to open my windows and let the cool spring breeze in. I only have a few months to go...
13. Get ready for the longest 1st Birthday Party post tomorrow night after Raiggie's party!!
