I know I haven't been posting much lately. I've been sick all weekend and I still have one more birthday to celebrate. I have a really good idea that I've been working on though, so I'll probably post that next week. In the meantime, my wonderful hubby got me a new polaroid camera for my birthday complete with a few rolls of expired film. Here's what I've taken with it so far.

perpetual dreamstate

It's monday and I have to go to work in a few hours, but I can't seem to get out this dreamlike state I've been in for the past week. My husband and I had confined ourselves to our house and have been completely engrossed in music, movies and reading.

My holiday season still isn't over anyway. My birthday is tomorrow, my dad's is on friday and my brother's is next wednesday. Bring on the cake!
