farewell mini

My new buddy (i.e. my computer) finally got here today!  So, this is my last post coming to you from my trusty, old mac-mini.
Surprisingly – this is a bit of a strange transition for me. I found myself thinking of all the things that have happened over the years since I’ve had this computer. (Kind of lame – I know… but I get nostalgic about lots of random things… trust me.)
You see – my little mini has seen me through quite a lot.
It has seen me move to a big, new city… It has been with me through photography school (and lots of photos taken/edited). It has had drinks spilled on it and has moved with me to five different apartments. It has seen me through boyfriends and plenty of drama. It has been through an engagement… and a wedding… including lots of late nights spent designing and printing wedding programs/invitations. It helped me to get my business off the ground… I edited the first wedding I ever shot back in September 2008 on this little mini. And since then, I’ve reviewed thousands of family, engagement, children and wedding photos on here…
But the time has come to let it go. I know it seems silly – but it’s really a big deal for me. To move on to a ‘real’ computer. A work horse that will get me through the many, many more images that are to come.
Don’t get me wrong though – I’m definitely excited about the transition. I just always think it’s good to look back and remember from where you’ve come… it helps to keep you grounded, humble and appreciative. (Even if that reflection started because I was reminiscing about a computer. I’m aware of how silly it is. Oh yes, I’m aware…)
