these are my two truths (as of late).

1. i've been feeling a little low. for a little while now.

2. and i've gotten myself a camera.

somehow these two things are related. and while i'll expound on the connection at a later date, this post is just to say...

turns out a good camera can make a girl feel pretty darn good.

beautiful, even.

and when you've been feeling a bit blue, that's surely something.

Micaela said...

how can you make a pulled back hair do just GORGEOUS?!

but i forget that of course you can, beautiful girl.

cheers to your new camera! i'm terrified about getting a nicer camera for fear i wouldn't even know how to use it? same reason i haven't given in to a fancier phone. lol

i hope you are smiling soon on the inside as well as the out. xo

Jo said...

I hope your spirits are lifted soon!

Beautiful pics, by the way! Your lashes are a mile long!! Enjoy your new camera! :)

Camilla Leila said...

leah jane said...

You are GORGEOUS!! The kind of beautiful that seems to spill over from the inside out.

Brittany said...

i'm glad the camera is doing the trick. you look gorgeous, but you always do.

Amy said...

Yay for cameras! Do you read Susannah Conway's blog? She's a photographer and does this amazing e-course called Unravelling - it's not about how to take good pictures, but how to take pictures to understand yourself and your world. Pretty powerful stuff. I recommend you Google her.

Krystle said...

BEAUTIFUL!
I love reading your blog meg.

heather said...

feel better!!! not to join the bandwagon or anything, but you truly are stunningly beautiful. have fun with your new camera! camera dates are the best. ;)

Emily said...

and dang do your eyebrows look good!

It's All Make Believe, Isn't It? said...

You have the prettiest smiling eyes!!
(And even without a special camera you are beautiful darling!) xx

Mary Grace said...

Girl, you don't even need a camera to prove your beauty. You are beautiful and even though I've never met you in person, I know that you have a certain charm and grace that no one else can imitate. Pretty sure someone out there is falling for you but you just don't know it yet. Or perhaps we may never know.

Brittany said...

Meg, meg. You are beautiful! Especially your eyes. I'm excited to see your new photos!

Janine said...

I don't even know you in real life but I can tell just from reading your blog that you are beautiful. Pretty on the outside and a gorgeous soul within.

Kera said...

you.are.gorgeous.

Magatha-May said...

Your whole face lights up when you smile

Jenni Austria Germany said...

these are the prettiest photos of you i've ever seen.

anna said...

you look lovely, really. and something in your eyes tell me that your low-feelings aren't going to last.

i'm a photographer; i'm excited to see what you do with your new camera!

becky said...

That first photo is beautiful---you ARE beautiful. I am glad a new hobby is making you feel so, too. x

you look so beautiful, meg. for what that's worth! I'm sorry you've been feeling low though. I too have found that taking pictures is a great way to take one's mind off one's low feelings. Hope it's working for you!

Chelsey said...

You are so beautiful :) Looks like you got a nice camera! We are looking at new cameras for when our little one joins us in August! Any suggestions?

Kate said...

beautiful images. i particularly like the first one. a camera truly helps uncover the beauty of every day life.

do you know what i realized yesterday? since it's march we'll have a 70 degree day sometime in the next 30 days. and this icky winter sad will be a distant memory.

Wisdom + Understanding said...

Meg you are so so beautiful. That first picture reminded me of Kate Winslet from Titanic for some reason... you're both classic, porcelain brunette beauties! I'd love to know too how you ended up choosing this camera out of all the options out there... I am currently figuring it all out :)
Also - pray the funk passes soon and gives way to awesome.

annie said...

oh, these pictures of your are just gorgeous! you are so beautiful, inside and out. can't wait to see your photography skills develop!

Katie said...

I've been feeling blue recently too. We (women, bloggers, people) should talk about this more. That is one of the things I love about your blog.

You look amazing, by the way!!

Laura Marie said...

1. So pumped for you and your new camera--although be warned, it will probably attach itself to your hand and never let go. Or maybe that will be you never letting go. But either way--be warned.

2. It's more than just your eyes and your eyelashes (which are, yes, unreal)... Because if it's possible to actually LOOK strong and wise and assured and determined, you do. You really do. Which is way more beautiful than anything else :)

look a little closer said...

yes. beautiful! and you have the pretties eyes!

Chelsea said...

nice camera.

you look gorgeous girl!

xoxo

A Sunday Kind Of Love said...

you are gorgeous. and i am in love with that striped top (and your eyelashes!!)

p.s. in the post below about purchasing your new camera...i have that exact black and white card "life isnt about finding yourself..." on my desk in my bedroom. are we the same person? :) happy wednesday!

Deepali said...

Really pretty images, very well done too!

*S said...

Miss Meg...you're a georgous one!

Hope you have a beautiful day.

xo.

Ana* said...

My two truths are

1. I think you're beautiful and have the nicest skin ever. Any tips for gals battling with acne?

2. I have been feeling a little blue too and have been thinking of getting a camera for quite a while. Maybe bloggers share a common factor for combating the blues

Have a beautiful day!

Erin said...

You don't look blue -- you look radiant! :) Keep smiling!

Alex said...

These pictures of you are absolutely STUNNING. Seriously.

bubble and squeak said...

i mean, you are. try not to forget.

Mocha Mornings said...

I've said it before, and it might sound strange from a perfect stranger, but you have killer eyebrows.

Have fun with your camera!

Platypodian said...

I've been a little down in the dumps, too. Just slightly. Love the new camera--and those are great picture of you!

Emily G. said...

Meg, you are so gorgeous!

Maria said...

You, dear, are positively gorgeous.

Natalie Hill said...

sooooo pretty, meggers! xo

Jay said...

I love these photos (too) of you :)

CC. said...

you are drop dead gorgeous, pretty girl.

Roxy Te said...

I must play devil's advocate...if you don't mind? Sometimes I'm feeling fantastic, pretty even, then I see a picture suddenly snapped, and the image never seems to live up to how I feel. I wonder what the world would be like without reflections and digital cameras?!

SARA REDD said...

1. good purchase.
2. you are beautiful.

Randi Lee said...

So pretty.... what is that lip color?? Love it!

Heidi said...

Very pretty! I just colored my hair too a few weeks ago (a shade a little darker than yours) and was wondering what lipstick color you are wearing. Would you share the name?

Miller Family said...
