Beginning (well, middle of the night)
end of the night
Ever get a thought lodged in your head and it doesn’t go away, no matter what? No amount of alcohol, food, or laughter could stop me from thinking that thing.

Ahh, Thanksgiving Day. This was one of the best Thansgiving’s I’ve had in recent years. I often have a hard time with Thanksgiving- there are too many obligations and the weather has usually turned from crisp to bone-chilling. It overwhelms me and I hide from the weather, the people, the happiness that sometimes seems out of my reach. But this year, I had a great time at my sister’s parents-in-law.
Clearly I couldn’t leave the gothic-ness behind completely, so I opted for grey and black. And tight clothes on Thanksgiving! Trust me, I knew to take pictures before dinner and spare you my food baby.
New bib necklace from Aldo. For a trendy piece, the price was right, baby!

Saturday night and I was feelin’ alright. But honestly, my second favorite part of any night out? That precise moment when my head hits the pillow and I shut my eyes. My favorite part of any night out, is of course, getting ready!
Looking at this outfit now, I think it would have looked better with a pair of brogues or something that reached below my ankle. Guess I need to go buy some brogue now, huh?
I bought my first dslr (Nikon D60) during the summer and I’ve really been getting into photography the past few months. Which has been fun, but also incredibly, incredibly frustrating. I am not a good photographer. I have no eye for composition, I have trouble understanding lighting, and I am not that creative. And I find myself surrounded by friends and families who have a real natural ability. Ugh. It’s so frustrating. But I’m going to keep trying. Things came so easy to me as a child and teenager, that I am just now learning to appreciate the feeling of succeeding after trying and trying.
Lovely readers, do you have any general tips for a burgeoning photographer? Or book recommendations?
