With all of its peaks and valleys, I loved this weekend.

Here's one:  old coin, multi-layered gunmetal silver necklace.  I will list this in my online shop soon.  Isn't it lovely?  I brought along my new camera and pretended I was an excellent photographer myself.  It was funny trying to take photos amidst the pros; but they didn't make too much fun of me.

She has run away.  She ran away years ago.   Here she looks for the boy she really fancies.  Love is fleeting.  Love is gone.

I really like taking pictures.  I have no clue what I'm doing.  I'm hoping to take some photography lessons from a friend soon who recently moved into the most awesome house with my other friend, Jessica.  Last night, we headed over for some drink and fellowship.  Man oh man, I love friendship (the biggest peak).  It's so big and full.  Time flew by and before we knew it, all of our respective bedtimes had passed.  With failing eyelids, we hugged goodbye and began the short grueling trek to facing the week ahead.
