While it may only be October 23rd, it is a very merry Christmas for yours truly.

In fact, it’s a merry Christmas AND happy birthday today.

Why, you ask?

Because my camera finally busted, I received my Christmas/26th birthday present from Mama + Daddy Everythingtarian about two months early.

And I am already obsessed.

While my Canon Rebel EOS XS and I are just getting to know each other, I can already tell this is going to be loving, committed and serious relationship. We spent all day together snapping more than 200 pictures, and he didn’t even complain once.

I love that about him.

Is it okay to celebrate Valentine’s Day today too?

Lucky duck! I want a new camera so badly! I’m hoping to accidently drop mine down the garbage disposal for trhat reason alone.

Sami October 25, 2010 at 8:48 am

lurveeeee the cupcake photo. <3 i need to start using my rebel….right now with the chaotic life i'm trying to lead, i cannot imagine lugging it around all the time, though. maybbee i'll start doing JUST weekend posts with the rebel…as you know a reward for running around with a chicken with my head cut off on week nights. :D

Kacy October 25, 2010 at 10:37 am

Yay, Merry Birthday!! I’m jealous, and happy for you, but mostly jealous.

Meaghen October 26, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Your pictures are beautiful!! I bought a Canon Powershot SX10 a few years ago and wished I had splured a bit more and bought the Rebel. Major green monster over here! :)
