Mandy - Wow, it’s so cool the way technology has progressed. Though I am surprised we haven’t already gotten to the point of full color, wide-screen HD videos in the womb! Or maybe live web cams? … Okay, that’s probably just weird.

Erica - I was just thinking about you and the baby yesterday so I was super-excited to get to see the 4D photos today. The baby looks so beautiful! Enjoy this last stretch of your pregnancy (despite the fatigue and getting up at ungodly hours of the night). There’s a certain sacredness, connectedness, sexiness to being pregnant. Sending good vibes your way! ~Erica =0)

Take much care!
We will be expecting more good news!

I'm on my way to Savannah!

This weekend I finally received the best news I’ve had in a while, I’ve been accepted into Savannah College of Art & Design. As most of you know, I currently have three associates degrees from Valencia, and though I could tell you all over again, “Why I chose a two year college” versus just pursuing […]

Because you just cant leave us, we need you. :)

sou:john - You have to be the single most productive person I have ever encountered in my life. I am in absolute awe of your accomplishments and goals. How long do you think it will take you to be President? No, ruler of the world? Four, five, maybe six semesters? lol. You don’t know how to take a break do you, but if you did you wouldn’t be Amanda. Okay, jokes aside now (but still thinking of them).

Congratulations. I’m glad that you are still constantly setting the example for Valencia students and alumni. You are, definitely, one of the greatest things to ever happen to our program. Thank you Amanda.

July 2, 2007 - 10:00 pm

Phyllis Hanson - Ditto. Congrats on your acceptance! Woo hoo!

Another update + help name the baby!

For those of you wondering how the baby’s been doing – great is an understatement. Despite getting more sick and being pretty fatigued the last month, I must keep reminding myself that being sick and tired is a “good” sign. I went in today for a routine visit – all I could do was proudly […]

k. simari - ha! “Jimmy Crack Kern” thats crazzzzzyyy! I’ll try to think of some names. I will get my daughter to think of some, she is creative when it comes to that.

July 3, 2007 - 12:19 pm

Colette Ruff - I like Benjamin, Brad, Brandon for a BOY.

Lorena Parra - I like Sebastian, David, Alex, Jonathan, Ryan, Brad, Ben, Jason, Kevin…. :)

July 7, 2007 - 12:39 pm

Claudia Mundlos - Nicolas – that’s my absolute favorite name for a boy. That’s what I’ll be naming mine one day. Only problem: people will end up calling him Nick and I don’t like that one so much. In general: pick a name that can’t be made into a common nickname (Nick name?)! Alexei is great, too. I love Russian names…

August 27, 2007 - 9:48 am

Jayna Kern - I like the names Aaron and Hayden and Jacob for a middle name because that was Grandpa Kern’s middle name.

Appreciating the little things…

Between keeping busy this summer and having a few setbacks in the last month, I’m reminded just how fortunate I am. It’s easy to take for granted some of the best things life brings, but during challenging times I always find myself reflecting on the little things that have made my life special. During tough […]
