i was kind of bummed about turning 27 but then i realized that i was being bratty and that each year is a blessing and i should look forward to turning one year older because that means i have had yet another lovely year with friends and family. though this year's birthday slipped by quietly and i wasn't much in the mood to celebrate, i'm grateful for the little things that made it memorable. artie took me out to one of my fav mexican restaurants, my co-workers treated me to some phenomenal pad thai, and my sister sent me one of best birthday gifts ever.
this cutie is the fujifilm instax mini 25. it's an instant camera that takes credit card sized photos. i was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the photos taken both with natural lighting and flash. and there's a tiny mirror in front to help you take perfectly centered self shot photos. the little extra lens fits onto the camera's lens like a cap and enables you to take close up photos. i nearly fell out of my chair when i opened the box and saw this little guy. i immediately texted my sister asking how she knew that i had been wanting this camera for ages. turns out, she didn't know but saw it and thought that i would love it... how awesome is my sister? <3 thanks uhnee! and now, off to take tiny photos and think of new things to do with my instax mini.
