Sign of the times

This may not look like much. To the casual observer, it might just like a bit of delicious chocolate mousse cake, taken at a questionable angle with a cell phone camera. And that observer might be right.

But she would be missing the bigger picture.

That, my friends, is a picture of something special. A symbol of sweet, sweet victory. A lunch time treat in honour of a personal celebration. (And you just know I'm going to tell you, right?)

This morning, I paid off the last bit of one of my student loans. A month early, even. Yes, I still have 2 outstanding, but that's not the point. There is hope, there is an end in sight! It may be a few years down the road yet, but it will happen! Woot! And Wa-hoo!

I'm celebrating with Strongbow and bacon sandwiches. I know, I know, it's a little over the top. That's me, all about the extravagance! (But, in equally-exciting news, I saved the sleeve - managed to frog & re-knit the 15 offending rows, rather than starting from scratch. And it's Friday. No wonder I'm feeling a little giddy!)

No celebration is complete without bacon. :) Congratulations baby!

Every little bit helps, I tell myself - still working on paying off mine -- and when I do, the celebration is going to include Strongbow and chocolate! (That bacon idea is a good one too ;-)
