a new beginning




For every ending, there is a new beginning. I started this weekend out on a low note. One of my most prized posessions, my absolute favorite peice of technology, and trusty friend vanished before my eyes. I would be lying if I said I wasnt prepared. I knew she was getting old. Her buttons wouldnt click, her flash wouldnt work, and she was getting tired of me pushing her so hard when she knew she had no more to give. I sat on the end of my bed and thought about our times together. Oh, the memories. Like that time I accidently dropped her from the top of a bunk bed and crossed my fingers and said a quick prayer in the middle of the night that she wouldnt be broken. Or the time when I wanted a blurry photograph so I rolled her down my street on a skateboard while I ran beside them. Or my favorite - how she went with me to every country I visited, every big event, every laughing moment and every crying moment and never let me down. I will miss you dear camera, it was a good five years. But just like my highschool yearbook quote states, when one chapter ends another begins. You could say I did a bit of rebound dating and found a new love pretty quickly (less than 24 hours! yikes!) but its till 'Death do us part' right? Heres to five years of new memories, with my new love!

How poetic did I sound just then? Maybe I take these things a bit too seriously? ;) On happier notes my friends, im here to introduce you to the newest member of my shoe collection. I call her 'Blink 18shoe" to take me back to my punk days of studs and galore. They were sent to me by the lovely Monica at Spotted Moth and I instantly fell in love. You know how I am with studs, so it didnt take me long to hop into these bad boys. I thought I would glam them up with a pretty dress and my favorite jumper. Not too shabby! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Kisses from Canada. x
