Here is an update on my life:
1. Our car was not totaled! YES! The auto shop is fixing it and insurance is paying for it, so we are not going to be financially ruined. These are all very good things.
2. I have yet to send in my camera due to aforementioned budgetary uncertainty, but now that we know we'll be able to pay for the repair, I'll be sending it in by Saturday at the latest.
3. Scott has been AMAZING with letting me borrow his camera and I've been shooting a ton of film as well--one of these days I'll get around to scanning it! I use a 35mm f/2 when shooting film and let me tell you, it's an incredible lens. Wow.
4. Thanks again to everyone for all of your support in all of this mess. Things are getting back to normal and I am continuing to grow in my photography--and that's what is really important. Especially during the holidays!
