And I've been quickly ushered in to a world that, I confess, I do not know

My mom, brother and I left to take Laureana to the airport at 2 in the morning so she could be on tv in Utah with her fiance to talk a little bit about the contest they won. It was weird leaving so early, but it was worth it. We went to a thrift store I'd been wanting to go to for quite some time, and I found the necklace and ring I'm wearing, as well as this poncho for $5! I love the pattern and colors and especially the hood! I think this raises my poncho/cape count to about five, and I am completely ok with that. :)

I know I mentioned that I got a new camera in my last post, but I didn't say much about it. It's the Canon Rebel T3i, and I LOVE it! It has a flip out screen that's enormously helpful for outfit photos, full HD video, and a bunch of other really nifty features. It also has about 8 megapixels more than my old camera (a Sony Alpha 230), which is definitely very nice. I hadn't really gotten to play with it much until I took these pictures. I'm still getting used to some things, but I'm really enjoying it! Not that photography is all about the camera you use or anything like that, but I feel like I'll be able to better my work now that I have this little baby.

I discovered the band Blitzen Trapper a couple of months ago, and they've definitely become one of my favorites. Their story songs are so beautiful, and this one is no exception. I really relate to it right now... especially the bit that I made the title of this post. And as an added bonus, the music video is pretty cool too!

I hope you all have a wonderful, memorable Thanksgiving tomorrow...make it count!
