it has become very clear in the past couple months that i have some amazing women in my life. for some reason its acceptable in our society for women to tear each other down. well i no longer accept this. i am so happy to have pillars of strength around me in my friends and family of women. you know who you are ladies. without you i wouldn't be who i am today. and i guess this is just a little thank you for being who you are and giving me love when i needed it the most! so to heres to you!!

Here are some of the reasons i love the Nook. If i ever have a problem with it i can take it to any Barns and Noble and they will fix it. I can share a book with any other Nook owner for 14 days. You can go into any Barns and Noble and reda and book for free for anh hour. there is an easy touch screen navigation at the bottom. 10 day battery life. 2GB memory which can hold up to 1500 books, magazines, and newspapers. I sync it with my computer so i always have a back up system with my books and they also save on BarnsandNoble.com. Also the price of books is so much more reasonable. Instead of a new hardback being 26.99 its 15.99. And older books are around 5 to 10$. And a nice added bonus was a lot of books that are public domain are free on the Nook. All the classics. Right up my alley. They also have very stylish accessories and i had to get the right cover for me. So naturally i got the Alice in Wonderland one.
I didn't need the 3G because i don't need internet all the time. WiFi is fine because all i need to do is buy the book once then turn it off. Also i felt there was no need for the nook color. At least for me. For one the price is too much for me and i read in black and white why do i need color? At then end of the day i am very pleased with this. Greg thinks i have a new boyfriend in my Nook. hahaha. No electronic can come between us Greg, if you are reading this. But i do love my Nook.
Annie Leibovitz is one of my favorite photographers. From 2007 to 2011 she has does these Disney dream portraits with various celebrities as different Disney characters. i am sure you have seen them in a variety of magazines over the years. Disney hired her originally for there “Year of a Million Dreams” campaign. it clearly did so well she has kept doing them even after year of million dream is over.
