I have a confession.

I'm a nerd.

And when I say nerd, I mean NERD! The target lady would even say "Classic nerd to the max!!"

For my friends, this comes as no surprise at all. For those of you who don't know me that well, it's time you knew.

I hope you can still be my friend. I hope this has no bearing on how you view me as a photographer.

I am ridiculously addicted to school supplies. I HATE Wal-Mart, but just getting to walk down the school supply aisle is enough to make me want to go. I don't know what it is - the crisp, clean look of brand new pencils that haven't been chewed on or banged up, capped my sharp edged erasers. Or maybe it's markers that are dark and heavy on the paper because they are brand new and have all their ink - or sharp crayons!!! Or maybe it's the perfectly clean white lined pages of a spiral notebook waiting to be filled with notes (from the lecture or to your best friend who sits in the desk behind you). I can't quite put my finger on it, but they are so fun to buy! So much fun that I actually bought these and didn't even need them! :) They make me smile, so I thought I'd pass that smile along to you today. Enjoy my school supplies, go buy some for yourself, or better yet, find a kid who can't afford them, and buy some for them!

Now, excuse me while I go fight the urge to doodle my first name with that cute guy's last name all over the front of one of my new notebooks. :)
