I broke my beloved Canon 6D on a backpacking trip on my birthday last year.
In the stupidest way, too! I dunked it in water while chasing a salamander. No big deal. Just dry it out, I thought! I took out the battery, and dutifully didn't turn it on for a week few days. It turned on, which was promising, but then the shutter started releasing on its own. Wahhh.
I sent it in to Canon for repair, and they came back with an estimate of $1,319.05. Noooooooo. I've been borrowing trusting people's cameras ever since. Until...

I am going totally bonkers over these socks. They're thin, so they don't bulge under jeans, and look totally cute peeking out of your favorite boots. Both of my pairs are in the laundry already. Waaaahh. :(
Wouldn't they make a great gift for a dear friend?
Yep. I didn't want to say anything for a while because I was so cautious about this one. It was so easy and perfect, it couldn't possibly last. But... here we are 1 year later, and it's still pretty great.
Above all, Alex is the happiest guy I know. It was a little alarming at first; how can nothing get you down? But now I realize I'm happier around him, so I don't question it anymore. When I'm bummed out about something silly, he always puts things in perspective.
Alex likes sleeping under the stars, loves my cats more than he loves me, is very organized and neat, and has never seen The Godfather. I love him. :)
