Then my parents visited me around Thanksgiving and my Dad asked me what I wanted for my graduation present. They'd mentioned that they wanted to get me something nice way back in May. My first instinct had been cash, of course. But my mom said that I'd just spend it on random things and wouldn't I rather have a Coach purse or Tiffany jewelry? She preferred gifting something that was more sophisticated and tangible than money. And then I left for Taiwan and we didn't talk about it again until they came to Taiwan. By that time I knew what I wanted. "I really want a camera," I said. "A DSLR, like the one Daddy has." So my dad gave me a budget to pick out a camera and accessories, which I did. I chose the Canon T2i and a few lenses. He bought those for me, so when I went home for Christmas and New Year's, I had a camera again. Yay! Thanks Mom and Dad, it's an awesome present!
Yup, I took that photo of the two of them with my awesome new camera. I'll be posting more photos soon.
Love you, Mom and Dad!
