i'd rather had breakfast at tiffany's

in the words of holly golightly: "you know those day when you get the mean reds? ...well, when i get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to tiffany's. calms me down right away. the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. if i could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then i'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!".  - if you follow me on instagram then you probably already know that camden got in a pretty gnarly accident yesterday. luckily and miraculously no one was injured more than a few scratches and bruises. camden's car is probably totaled and broken beyond repair. i guess you could say yesterday was one of those days you want to find a hole to bury your head in. one of those days you just want to go back to sleep and wake up when it's all over. one of those days where you are afraid to ask "could this day get any worse?".  the day was bad and that was that.

but then again, there are a few positives to look at here; no one was seriously hurt in this car accident. if you were to see the pictures of all three cars and their mangled parts, you might think differently. furthermore, the accident wasn't actually camden's fault and we all know that this is always a plus especially considering the condition of camden's car, brutally smashed and quickly murdered. all the driver's had insurance so besides the headache of the constant phone calls to and from grumpy insurers, there isn't too much to worry about here. also, it isn't as if we are really put out much having only one car. it had really been our plan all along to get rid of a car and just have one anyway. we decided we should be feeling pretty good. after all, we had a lot to be thankful for and tomorrow was a fresh day filled with much hope to be better. and it was better. much better.

  2. I'm so glad no one was hurt! I am glad you were able to put such a positive outlook towards this- it can be so hard when it's loved ones involved. I hope everything with third parties and whatnot gets sorted easily and soon. :)

  3. Yikes! It's so hard to see the good in the bad, but you've done a good job of spotlighting the best part: no one was hurt, and that is miraculous! Here's to a better today. I hope the headache is soon over for you!

  5. Those pictures are beautiful and I love Breakfast at Tiffany's : ) I'm so sorry you went through such a hard time yesterday. I appreciate you looking on the positive side - going through something like that can have such a terrible effect on your nerves and emotions, but choosing to be positive is the key to moving on.
