    Hi! I love this post. I feel the same way about making big purchases — even if you know it’s worth it, it’s easy to go back and forth on it for a while. I recently replaced my nearly six year old computer that was big, clunky and slow. I had been thinking about it for months and randomly took the plunge one weekend. I’m SO happy I did it — it’s lighter, works better, and is just much better suited to my post-college needs. I hope you LOVE your new camera, it’s the best when you get something you really love (and know you’ll have forever.)

    I actually have a question on full frame vs. zoom. Do your old lens from your rebel work on this camera? Or does it need new lenses that are full-frame specific? (I have a Rebel too!)

    Love the post! x Diana

    Congrats on your upgrade! I love that you said “you do need to invest in yourself and what you love” because sometimes I feel guilty about spending money on my blog stuff too.

    Hi Jackie!
    Congratulations on your Mark III. That is what I shoot with too and it is an amazing camera. I see this photo you took of the Flatiron building…so I will be purchasing that and the other print from your etsy shop!
    You totally deserve it! Have a great day!

    I’m so glad I read this today! I love your lifestyle Jackie! You TOTALLY deserve EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL!
    I’m having trouble believing I deserve certain things myself. I’m getting to know people who are life affirming like you, and it’s been a tremendous help for me breaking out of old mind patterns.
    Keep on loving yourself and keep us informed with this terrific blog!

    Jackie, LOVE this post! The photography and lighting is excellent. You clearly have a ton of talent, and you should be proud to invest in yourself! Of course, I was also so glad to hear that your blog design is one thing you’re glad you invested in ;]. Thanks again for all your help this weekend! XOXOXO

    Good for you, Jackie! How exciting!! You should be very proud of your purchase and your blog 🙂 I have followed your blog for years and just love it!! I’m a nursing student and find it encouraging how you still have made time to enjoy everything else you love (sometimes I used to feel guilty for indulging in my other interest like fashion, books, etc. and not all things school related) but you have a created a beautiful outlet and that is so inspiring 🙂 Enjoy your new camera!
