A new camera, after 5 years of using a little point and shot. I now feel like a grown up with my own digital SLR (Olympus PEN E-PL1). Big thanks to my generous family and friends that put together to purchase this.
And finally, my frangipani flowered. I was given this over 5 years ago by a dear friend. It was only a 10cm stick in a pot, now nearly taller than me, and it flowered over my birthday.
