catch ya later, alligator

Unrelated: the pictures above. I took those shortly after the thousands of alliums in the field behind our house had bloomed. I had a shockingly purple backyard for about a week.

Early tomorrow morning, we're gettin' the heck outta Dodge for a little family vacation. Paul and I are kind of crazy in the fact that we live in the mountains, yet we're vacationing to some other mountains. We've never been huge beach people (too hot and crowded) because we both prefer solitude and being close to nature. Also, I've been mourning the death of my computer hard drive for a few weeks. I had to send it off to a clean room and they quoted me $1500 to recover all of Lily's baby pictures. Yeah, right! I'm going to hang on to my old hard drive and maybe in five years, we can afford to drop fifteen Benjamins on my sentimental heartstrings. Hopefully, my new computer will be ready and waiting for me when we return to Provo next week. Until then, please excuse the dismal amount of posting on this here blog. 

Side note: I can't stop wondering why people choose to copy other artists'/writers' work? I mean, do they think that no one will notice? It's been on my mind a lot lately and I just can't shake it off. You'll never get too far in the world when you're an exact copy of someone else.


  1. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to soon because the same thing happened to my computer 2 years ago.
    Hopefully that helps! Have fun on your vacation.

    1. Oh, thanks for that, Andrea! You are just the best!

  2. I have a hard drive recovery kit. If the drive is still THAT functional, I can recover everything for you. If, however, it actually NEEDED to go to a cleanroom, the cables won't help. There are, however, many people who will do drive recovery for the $100-$400 range, depending on what exactly has failed on your old drive.
