blah

I was going to write a wonderful, happy post, filled with pictures of cats, flowers, and vintage cameras, but to be honest, I'm not in the mood. It seems to me, that every blogger (including me) only writes about the good, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just not realistic. 

Normally I'm fine with it, but today was a bad day, and it's leaving me in a sour mood, and since I suck at expressing how I feel, I'm just gonna leave it at that.

Sometimes it's okay to vent, right?

Click It Up A Notch

It was a little harder to choose a favourite this month, but I went with this one because I love the beautiful soft lighting, and nothing can beat that smile! ;)

the bookstore

In a small town, just 30 minutes from my own, sits a small bookstore full of antique loveliness. 

In this bookstore, there's a beautiful cat who lays by the fire, books covering every square inch of wall, and on this certain day, a very happy me.

camping

I've been a little busy lately, which has resulted in neglect to this poor blog of mine. Unfortunately, it's also resulted in 2 lost followers, which kind of sucks!

On Wednesday me, my mom, and my friend Madi headed out to a campsite in my hometown. We only stayed for 2 nights but a fun time was had by all!

Something about sitting by a campfire all day, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs is exciting! I'm sort of a pyro-maniac, so I can sit and watch the fire forever! ;)

The campground was also on a lake, so we got to go swimming a few times. And I also had my first driving experience, which was really exciting!

Then there are always the fun things like little adventures to the park and eating rice crispies out of a pie pan! ;)

After camping something slightly exciting happened; we headed to future shop and I got my first lens! :) It's the 50mm 1.8 II and although it's a little hard to get used to, I'm so insanely excited to see what I can do with it! :) Anyways, enough rambling. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

that kind of day

It was a black and white, self portrait taking, messy bun wearing, popcorn eating kind of day.
