Can't wait for this very important date :)

First let me say that I'm a HUGE Tim Burton fan, followed by the fact that I'm an even BIGGER Johnny Depp fan. So when ever they announce that they are doing a project together I get down right giyty. About 15 years ago while writing a paper on the beloved story Alice in Wonderland by Carol Lewis I mused that my dynamic duo should make that tale into a film. I'm sure you can all guess my udder delight when I saw three years ago that they both had signed to make my wish come true (had I known the power I held in that moment so long ago I may have struggled to stay true to the Burton/Depp desires of my heart given all the other things I could have wished true, but you know what they say about hindsight). So I have waited with bated breath for the day to come where I could cuddle up to my warm popcorn and cool diet coke and let myself slip into my favorite place of all - the land of complete whimsy. I adore the absolutely impossible! So here's a little clip of awesome for you to feast on. I hope you can set aside the real and suspend reality for a few hours and let yourself get lost in a bit of good old fashion story telling - it's good for the soul, I promise.

And just a little bit of post scrip info for you all - cause I love to teach you know. Do you know why he was called the Mad Hatter? Well in Lewis' day the hatters used a special formula to shape the brims of the top hats. This concoction used Mercury which long term exposure to caused insanity. Hence the expressionhe's as mad as a hatter.

Stress? What stress?

There is something about photographing siblings that makes me long to have one myself. I grew up the only child and my only cousin was 9 years my senior. So much of the sibling relationship is very foreign to me. I often look at those who don't get along with each other and I just don't understand how you could take for granted the blessing of that family. Well these cuties live right next door to me and I have watched them grow up so quickly. They love each other and I truly hope they remain as close as they are today!
