Toto and Kansas and Metaphors

I went to Kansas once. It was March, still kind of cold, with enough sun to not wanna wear a sweater, and enough chill in the air to force you to. It was for my cousin's wedding, (about the longest wedding I've ever been to) and my family stopped in St. Louis on the way (Meet me in St. Louie!). We even rode to the top of the arch. And after the weekend was over, and as we drove hundreds of miles back to home, we crossed the state line, and I thought, (so aptly) "Toto... (you know the rest) we're not in Kansas anymore." (Actually, I'm still in Ohio.) But what's the meaning? It's not like it used to be. Ecclesiastes 7:10 (Oh, no! Don't pull out a Scripture reference!) says, "Do not say, 'Why is it that the former days were better than these?' For it is not from wisdom that you ask about this." (NASB) So don't lament the good ol' days. Why? Because...we're not in Kansas anymore.

Briana is 1

...of the most amazing nieces ever.

I went to my sisters today and hung out for Bri's birthday party.

I am so proud of her. She ate her cake pretty much in a dignified manner, with her one little cute index finger.
