I've probably posted some of these photos here before, a long time ago. They were all taken by my grandfather, he was always taking awesome pictures of pretty much everything. Today was his funeral and it was so sad! I could not stop crying. Afterwards at my grandma's house she showed us their wedding album, it was full of pictures of them getting married in the 1940s in the very same church that the funeral was just held today. Everything was sad but the part where you place a flower on the casket at the graveyard right before they lower it down, I think that was the saddest part. Anyways here are some of his awesome photos. The ones I scanned are mostly of my mom and aunt, they went camping a lot. The tenth photo down is of the first poodle I ever had, Leo. His poodle name was "Stormy Lane Summer Wine" which always fascinated me when I was little.

A Fall shop update! I think this is my favorite time of year to pick out clothes and shoes for the shop. I haven't been around here much lately, I guess a lot has been going on. I've been trying to decide if I should move or not, away from the city. I feel so confused about it though. New York is so expensive, it is really hard to live here as a single person, paying rent on an apartment by myself.  I have this dream of having a big garden and owning my own washing machine, those things are not possible here. On the other hand if I move to New England I am afraid of being totally isolated, I dont know anyone there hardly at all besides my family. Another con is that there are no restaurants out there, nothing besides weird chain restaurants in close proximity to malls. I could always just drive a couple of hours into the city for the day I suppose, it wouldn't be that far away. I know it wouldn't be the same though, I just really don't know what to do. It's so hard to even think about it! When I talk about it my friends eye me warily which stirs up more doubt. I guess I do know that I could always just move back if I don't like it. I have a lot of deciding to do.
