Laura as Alice in WONDERLAND! (ok, it's a cool thought.....:-)

Mia Wasikowska as Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
I have always been in my own little fantasy world in my head since I was a child. I think that is why I am so excited to see Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland when it hits theaters on March 5th! I know I won't ever want the movie to end. And when it does end, I will be thinking about it for weeks. I will try to incorporate pieces of the costumes the characters wear into my own real life. I got to thinking about why it is I do this? It's not because I don't like my life. I love it! I think it is because real life is just that. Real. Maybe too real. I think we all could benefit from a little make believe fantasy fairytale once in a while. It's an escape to something different and new. It gets you out of that same old every day routine and into a world of the unpredictable. If I have to complain about anything in my life, I guess that it would be that it's predictable. And if that is my biggest complaint, then so be it. Because if it was unpredictable, who's to say it would be all good? It would be really cool if great unpredictable things would happen to me all the time. But, that didn't even happen to Alice did it................Maybe my life is fine as it is.........;-)

These photos are by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue's December 2003 issue featuring model Natalia Vodianova as Alice. She's so beautiful!
