We're in Single Digits Now!

First of all, I want to thank so many of you who commented on yesterday's post. Your kind and thoughtful words were much appreciated and encouraging. I feel very blessed to have such incredible blog friends. Who knew a "virtual" community could give so much warmth and encouragement to me? *hugs* to you all!

Second--and on a much lighter note--check out those love birds on my wedding ticker! They're getting so close, I think they might just kiss! Only nine days to go until the big day!

I'm getting married!

Speaking of lovebirds, this photo is of two bald eagles doing their annual courtship flight, in which they lock talons and do free-falling aerial acrobatics. Not until they are very near to the ground do they release their grip on each other so as to make a safe landing. The courtship flight is performed by bald eagle "couples" once a year, and it is thought of as a sort of vow renewal. Interesting, huh?

Well, if you say so. It looks more like a Rorschach inkblot test to me.

Happy countdown.

Yay, it's getting closer!

I think the story behind the bald eagles is fascinating. I never knew. I have to agree with Ally though, the picture kinda do look like an inkblot test :)
