Today I received the beautiful Canon I had been wishing to purchase since I started this blog! I didn't know where I was going to buy it, then one day Jenna, from Sweetfineday announced she was getting a new camera. I posted on her blog that she should sell the old one so she could buy this one... and after a few weeks... I have her camera!
I feel honored to have something someone has used for over 2 years to document their family and hard work... and also, I have this surreal feeling that distance doesn't matter at all, that people aren't afraid to open up. The online community has brought together so many people from all around the world that it is silly to imagine we are alone anymore.
Jenna was kind enough to also send me some cookies and kitchen cloths from Whimsy & Spice (owned by her husband and her). Now... let me show you the difference:

|New Camera (though my old one couldn't deal with the lighting)|
I took the cookies to my mother's house so we could share them while having some tea. I also gave her one of the two kitchen cloths i received. As soon as I gave it to her she started thinking of ways she would use it: an upside-down apron seemed like the perfect way to use it, so she could read it as she went along (not that she ever measures anything!).
And so, my friends, I finally have a new camera!! Of course, that doesn't take away from the fact that I have no idea about most of the buttons in it... but it already feels like a big change :-)
