happy birthday to me!

It's true. 
I am officially a year older. 
As of today I have spent another 365 days loving, learning and living life. 
Another 365 days filled with laughter and heartbreak and lessons learned and lessons shared. 
Another 365 days filled with opportunities and choices and chances. 
Another 365 days filled with creative adventures and giving and receiving. 
Another 365 days of learning about what makes me who I am.  
Another 365 weeding out what is really important and letting the rest go.
Another 365 days of savoring and documenting.
Another 365 of being infinitely blessed by the challenges and the rewards that have come my way. 
 Life is good.

So as a (very) special birthday gift to myself I bought one of these...




The Ginger to be exact. 

I have had my eye on these since Maile first began talking about them. I haven't wanted to splurge, but I figured hey...no better time than your birthday, right?  Well, that and there is a 15% off promo code if you enter HAVEANEPIPHANIE2 at checkout.  

It was tough to choose between the Ginger and the Belle, but I opted for the more classic style of the Ginger. And she is even lined with a light turquoise color! Isn't she pretty?
Now my beloved DSLR will have proper travel accommodations!
Happy Birthday, indeed!

And I have decided that tonight, when I blow out the candles, I will share a wish with you...

So close your eyes and wish away, it's on me ;-)

Happy Birthday Melissa. I love these bags, I was so excited when I found out about them. What a perfect solution for anyone who wants to carry their camera. I spent weeks deciding between the Belle and the Lola, then she said that she would be getting new designs in the Summer and that put me in a total pickle!! Thanks for the discount code, that might make me take the plunge!!
