Thank you!

I am so blessed to have such supportive friends and family and my darling Tyler. It's been difficult, starting over after my hard drive crashed a few days ago. It sounds dramatic but it really is a painful thing. I'm getting quotes to recover data that are so incredibly high, I have to wait and hope that the information is still recoverable in a month, maybe three. With the move and now planning a wedding there certainly isn't an abundance of money floating around. It's so strange to have a price on my memories. What are your memories worth to you? It would seem like a no brainer of course, no matter the cost, get everything back- but then there is this part of me that thinks I deserve to lose it all for being so careless. Does this make any sense or do I just sound ridiculous? Tyler did say a lovely thing to me after the hysteria subsided, "We've got so many good memories a head of us, don't worry hon." And dear friends have been sending me pics that they have of the shop, Rachelle, a friend and the owner of Hawk Eyes came by the morning after with a flourless chocolate cake from Terroni that could put a smile on a dead man and today Shira sent the photos seen here from her beautiful wedding that I did a couple months ago. I am re-building thanks to all of you, slowly but surely, and it's kind of freeing in a zen sort of way to clear and begin anew.

Tyler and I are in the midst of packing and get ready for a huge move. I can't wait to share more about this with you!
With endless gratitude.

Hey girly,
Let me know if my inner nerd can come out and play with your Mac... I have a few ideas on how to restore the data and do it almost fee (need to purchase a hard drive adapter that is not expensive at all)! Can't wait to see you!

I was so sad to hear about your computer disaster!

I don't know much about computers but my mom and sister just had their hard drive on their mac crash and they thought they lost everything. Including my sister's ten page essay she's been slaving over for months. But then yesterday at the mac store they we're able to boot it up and retrieve what they could. They got most of the important stuff. Including the essay!

According to a techie-friend of mine, repeatedly trying to re boot it and retrieve what you can as quickly as possible works. But as I'm typing this I'm thinking if your computer is completely fried it probably doesn't boot up at all?

Just thought I'd share that with you. Not sure if it helps at all..

But Tyler is totally right! You've got the most amazing memories coming your way. And this time you'll know how to protect them :)
