Well it's officially been over a month since the last time I blogged but the last four weeks or so have been a serious whirlwind. I had final exams followed by final projects followed by the passing of my gram and now the start of a new term at school. So to say that my life has been feeling pretty hectic would be a bit of an understatement. I've also been sick twice over the last three weeks so that's been a major bummer. All the craziness has also meant that photography and blogging in general has been sitting on the back burner. These photos are from 2 weekends ago when I spent the Thanksgiving weekend on the island with my boyfriend and his family.

Best part of the week: Going back to school meant getting to see my buddies again! I missed them for the week we had apart and it was so fun to sit next to each other and laugh and complain about learning. This program would be so much worse if they weren't in it.

Worst part of the week: The worst part of this week has been still being sick and having to deal with the remnants of all the stuff that's happened over the last few weeks. 

Something I'm grateful for: In hard times it becomes really apparent of just how much I have to be grateful for. But for the past couple of weeks I've been feeling really grateful for all of the memories I have with my Gram. From eating her famous homemade cinnamon buns to sleeping under the stars to picking up my preordered Harry Potter books, Gram really made my life so incredibly special. And for all that she gave me, including the material goods as well as the memories and experiences, I will be eternally grateful.

Something I'm looking forward to: I don't feel like I'm looking forward to much. It might be the serious lack of energy, the crappy weather or just my headspace but there isn't really anything that's got me stoked.

471) Are you allergic to anything? all the things. Not actually but it sometimes feels like it. I'm 100% allergic to cats and dogs and horses and other fury creatures and dust and pollen definitely get me sniffly. In terms of food, although I don't have allergies per say, I do have a lot of sensitivities that can make life slightly more challenging than I'd like...

Apologies for the quiet, folks, it's been a go these past few weeks and a break from writing and photography was in order. Hopefully things will calm down and return to something closer to "normal" and we'll be back to our regularly scheduled blog content.

Happy weekending! Stay warm and stay dry!
