Top 5 things I like about my Country

1. Capitalism

"Wealth is a product of man's capacity to think" -Ayn Rand

2. Libraries - it never ceases to amaze me that they just let you borrow books and return them at your leisure. This is nothing short of trust and kindness to America's citizens.

3. I think it was Dr. Laura that said "A nation can be measured by how well it takes care of its weakest members, namely the elderly and special needs children" America gets this.

4. My Religion that I hold nearest and dearest to me. It was founded/restored in New York.

5. It is, simply put, absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The mountains, oceans, forests, lakes, suburbs, New York City at night, Temple Square at Christmas, Fishers Landing in the fall, Hawaii year round. I love it all and I am so grateful to live here

6. I know I said 5, but deal with it.

-The song "My Country Tis of Thee"
gets me every time!

Happy 4th of July!!

Top 5 things I like about my Dad

Top 5 things I like about my Dad
1. He likes hanging out with his kids, it's not always about the grand kids.
2. He speaks Hebrew.
3. He reads a ton.
4. He and my Mom raised 4 really cool people, otherwise known as my siblings.
5. He doesn't make a move without my Mom, seriously, they are inseparable and I think they wouldn't have it any other way.

Odd photo

I know this is an odd photo to post, but I actually really like this photo. I have always been self-conscience of my fat, I mean round, face and sometimes double chin. I actually have 3 chins in photos of me and my newborns. But this photo, while odd and I am not sure what I was doing there with my arm (Warren took the photo), I think shows that I actually have a jaw line. I look a lot more like my sisters, which is a really good thing. I just wish it were in focus.
P.S. Sorry for my narcissism

More wedding photos

This is what I did with my flowers

These are my sisters in law. This is the day before the wedding, all of us getting a pedicure.
