I'm in Love

There was some excitement here last Friday. I had been anxiously awaiting this package. It did not come until 4:15 pm. Now what could be in this big box.

It turns out it was something pretty expensive and pretty small in comparison. I decide 4 months ago that I was going to get a smart phone.  With a new version of the iPhone on the horizon I waited for it to be released.  I ordered mine on the first day along with millions of other people.

Just look at her, doesn't she look beautiful. It was love at first site, unfortunately I couldn't get her to work.  I had to go down to Verizon the next day.  It was something to do with being stuck in the app that was transferring my contacts. She is all happy now.

 I don't know if its really possible to be in love with your phone but I am.  Its my first smart phone and it really can do amazing things.  I am just amazed with Siri the new voice activated feature of the iPhone. I was playing around with it yesterday, you can ask it to send a text, play a song, check your calendar and the weather and so much more. Then there is the camera, its an 8 megapixel camera and then lens switches around so you can do self portraits, you can even edit photos on your phone. About the only thing it does not do is wash the dishes. Oh you can also make calls with it just like any other phone. Have you ever been infatuated with new technology.

This afternoon I found out I won a spot in this class from the lovely Kylie at Blissful Pumpkins. I am so excited, I wanted to take the class but with the holidays coming up I didn't know how I was going to be able to do it. So I am so grateful to have won this class.  As I was thinking about this I thought here I am in small town Idaho and I won a class from a woman in Australia who will be teaching along with 14 others organized by a Dutch woman who lives in England.  All this is possible due to the internet.  It is such a magical world we live in.

To find out more about Life Book head on over to Tam's site Willowing. I think this is going to be an awesome class and its such a groundbreaking idea.  I have had a class with Tam before and she really is wonderful


  1. Wonderful luck and blessing on you, Lovely Kate ! How fun !
    I am not the happy owner of an Iphone but I do so love my Ipod Touch. I am sure you will have a ball getting to know one another.
    Congrats on the class win too !
    Happy Wednesday !

  2. Congratulations on both your beautiful new iphone and your winning the Life Journal Class! What a great blessing for you! My boys showed me a video on the new iphone and it is pretty amazing! Enjoy!

  3. You're just one happy gal right now. A new iPhone and winning the class! I'm so happy for you. I'm really looking forward to that class.

    I don't have an iPhone and I seldom ever use my cell phone! I'd probably have to take a class to learn how to use one of the new ones.

  4. Wow Kate!!! Congrats on winning a spot in that class...lucky YOU and Janet. Enjoy your iPhone...I'm tossing around the idea of getting a tablet...maybe a Motorola Xoom like my daughter's...don't know yet.

  5. Like Janet, I would have to take a class to use this amazing iphone. I love that you are so excited, have fun, let us know how you are doing with it. Happy phone day dear friend, Hugs, Mary

  6. Congratulations on winning a place on Tam's Life Book Year, and also for you new iPhone.

  7. I am a bit jealous, Kate, of your iPhone. I have a very old iPhone (no longer supported) with a broken camera and qualified for an upgrade, and they told me it might be here Friday, but for sure sometime in NOVEMBER! In the meantime, it still makes and receives calls, but that's it...the apps make it crash, and nothing else works. So soon I'll know what you mean :) Actually, I am really happy for you...

    And big congratulations on winning the class. I think you're a great person to win things like that because you always share things you learn with us, so it feels like I won too, in a way :)

    ENJOY! xoO

  8. Oh you lucky lady!!!
    Enjoy your iPhone and congratulations on winning the class. *hugs*

  9. Congrats on your new iPhone, Kate!!! I have an Android smartphone which I LOVE!! The APPS are so much fun!

  10. Congratulations on winning the seat in Tam's class!! And on your iPhone - I have phone envy! I look forward to seeing what new art you bring forth from this!!
