Take Me Anywhere... And My Camera Too

... I need a camera bag. There is also a list of requirements. One, it can't look like a camera bag. Two, must be big enough to hold a camera with lens attached, extra lens, flash and anything else I absolutely need... but not as big as a duffle bag (that's three). Four, must have long straps, none of that short handle business. Four, it needs to look like this...
Isn't absolutely perfect? I love love love it! THEIT definitely has the right idea on how camera bags should look like. Unfortunately, there is a waiting list... and this is where a practice my patience.

The Glass House

Darlings,
For as long as I can remember I have been very fascinated with glass houses. All that natural light and breathtaking views definitely do it for me. Though my dream house looks mostly like this (or this), I still had a marvelous time daydreaming with these pictures.

California
Costa Rica
London
Spain
New York

Organic Reactions, Reticulocyte Counts, and Caramel Cappuccinos

Darlings,
For the rest of this week I won't be able to spend time with you... but I promise I will be back once this madness called exams, quizzes, and lab reports ends (or at least slow down a bit). I hope you all have an absolutely marvelous week and I promise to tell you all about mine very soon. 
(my companions for the next couple of days... and beyond)

Goodbye Wisconsin...

Darlings,
I had the most amazing weekend back home. Even though we were somewhat snowed in and had to cancel many of the weekend plans, it was still absolutely marvelous. 
In a couple of hours I will be making the four and a half hour ride back to the university and I am not too ecstatic about it because making that drive means driving away from my home, parents, little sister, and my love. It's always hard and I hate goodbyes. Hopefully we'll be saying hello very soon.

Home is Definitely Where the Heart Is

Darlings,
I am currently writing this from the comfort of my beautiful home... and not my dorm room. I am so happy! Also, what better way to arrive home than to beautiful flowers from your man delivered to your house? Yesterday we celebrated 22 months together AND we are finally in the same state and time zone for the first time in 50 days. I say it calls for celebration. 
Now tell me dolls, do you celebrate "monthiversaries" and other small "...ersaries" or do you stick to the yearly landmarks?

Wedding Wednesday: Florida Keys

Darlings,
I don't know how's the weather where you live but over here, it is drizzling and temperatures aren't even hitting the 40s today. So now you understand why I decided to share with you this vibrantly beautiful wedding full of color, love, and warmth.
