Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I can't believe it's the end of the week again. Tonight James and I want to see this movie before it leaves theaters, and tomorrow high school reunion. First of all, how has it been 10 years since I graduated high school?! And secondly, how is it my 29th birthday in two months? I feel like I just celebrated 28. Blarg. I am so excited to see old pals and catch up, though, so it will be such a fun time, I just know it. Have you had a high school reunion yet? And if so, did you go and have fun?
This week has been a little cray cray with the freelance gigs -- brides are coming out of the woodwork again like it's March, and I'm just trying to keep up with writing (and blogging, cooking, cleaning, and boot camp...). Whew. Even though life gets a little stressful sometimes, I really can't complain. It rocks pretty hard, too.

Last night I took a breather and watched Woody Allen's "Crimes and Misdemeanors." It was so good -- definitely one you should add to the Netflix queue. The end quote really resonated with me, and I wanted to share:

“We’re all faced throughout our lives with agonizing decisions, moral choices. Some are on a grand scale, most of these choices are on lesser points. But we define ourselves by the choices we have made. We are, in fact, the sum total of our choices. Events unfold so unpredictably, so unfairly, Human happiness does not seem to be included in the design of creation. It is only we, with our capacity to love that give meaning to the indifferent universe. And yet, most human beings seem to have the ability to keep trying and even try to find joy from simple things, like their family, their work, and from the hope that future generations might understand more."
--Professor Levy played by Martin S. Bergmann, a New York University clinical professor in psychology, in the movie "Crimes and Misdemeanors" by Woody Allen

There's so much truth to this, don't you think?

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and I'll be back next week with some fun blog posts -- maybe even a DIY project or two...
