Star Wars Junkie

I confess. I am a "Star Wars" junkie. Episode 3 "Revenge of the Sith" has been in theaters not even a week, and already I have seen it no less than four times (my junkie husband has seen it five). We were at the theater opening night for the 12:01 showing, and it was an awesome experience! I never go to movies on opening night because I hate standing in line and the mad rush for all the best seats. But, I figured if ever there was a time to make an exception to this rule, it was for the final installment of the "Star Wars" saga. It is the end of an era for me. Episode 4 came out in 1977, the year I was born. My parents went to see it, and they liked it so well that they went back the next night and saw it again! What can I say? I was raised by a junkie. At least I come by it honestly.

A Proud Auntie

Meet my beautiful new neice! Michaela Grace Marcum made her entrance into the world about a week early. She was born on April 30, 2005 and weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces. Proud parents are Josh and Julie Marcum (my sister). I think she is the most beautiful baby ever, but I'll admit I am probably biased! I am amazed at the extraordinary love I feel for this tiny person who doesn't even know me yet. I love being an "auntie," and I only wish I was going to be around to watch this little one grow up.
