Well I know i'm sooo late with my Mother's Day bragging, but better late than never!!
Most of you already know that I have the best husband and child a mother and wife could ever ask for, but they clinched it this Mother's Day!
Last year around Mothers Day (it may have been a week or so later, but oh well) we went to a local nursery and outfitted my gardens for the year. It was sunny and beautiful and was going to be tradition.
This year it rained. We decided to run errands instead. Our laptop died the week before and it was time to look for a new one, and groceries needed buying.
I dropped James off at the Best Buy and went to do some groceries. I called him after we snuck to another store to pick up a Father's Day gift for him, to find out where he was. He said Future Shop, so off we went to find him. We get into the store and he waves to us, and strangely enough he is in the camera section talking to a guy. I really don't remember what was said, but the next thing I know I'm holding a body to a Sony a330 and they are staring at me. James looks at me and tells me that it comes with 2 lenses, and it's on sale, and Happy Mother's Day, Anniversary and Birthday!
WHAT?! WOAH! I start to tear right up as I have wanted a digital SLR for as long as I can remember! I start mumbling thank yous and crying and the guy in the store asks how long I've wanted one... "uh, forever" was my mature response. I still can't believe it's happening!
James is the most awesome person I know. And not just because he listens when I think he's not, and he knows what I want, and he will do what he can to make it happen. I Love him so much and am so proud to be the Mother of his Daughter.
Here is a picture we took of the New Camera with the really old one (I couldn't remember where we'd put the newer pocket camera!!) If only I could take pictures of the camera with the camera it would be a wicked awesome shot! (but check out the above link and you'll see it from the Sony page)
So expect a lot of really awesome pictures to be coming your way once I figure out all the funky features and fun stuff I'm going to have to learn!
In the meantime, here are a few "teaser pictures!"
