So I found a bunch of my pictures that I had backed up onto DVD's. I thought that I'd done this about 3 or 4 years ago but I guess it was just before Ben and I started dating again. So ... I have all my pictures up until a little over a year ago (about 5000 pictures). I AM SOOOO Happy. The bad news is ... I have no pictures from our honeymoon or wedding. So I'm still bummed over the loss of my hard drive but the pain has been lessened.
