And I like it.
He even dug up a gold dollar for her. I loved getting gold dollars from my dad as a kid. I still have them. Dad says they are good luck. I can't argue that. I've been pretty lucky in my life.
And their bedspread has turned out to be the perfect backdrop for touch-of-girl pictures of Evie.
Saturday we went my friend Kristen's Thirty-One-Mary-Kay-Premier-Jewelry party.
Once in awhile it’s nice to be where you are most comfortable, with the people you are most comfortable with, doing nothing but absorbing all kinds of family goodness.
Like these expressions… so many in just a few minutes. Moody, eh?
And of course, the classic I-see-daddy-smile. It's goofy and I love it.
And she finally found out that those piggies taste good.
So as soon as the Thirty-One bag that has been ordered for the give-a-way arrives I will draw the winning follower. I will post the winner in a post so make sure you check back to see if you've won!
I'm amazed at how many people have subscribed in just two days. I'll be honest, I thought 100 was ambitious! Apparently not. In just two days I have over 200. I'm planning another give-a-way already - when my follower count hits 1000. Thank you everyone!
And thank you for the sweet comments. I was giddy this morning reading what some of you ladies had written. Keep them up!
As far as the photography "lessons" - they are officially in the works! I'm setting up the site now and getting together some material that I can pass along to you. I'm thinking it may be as early as next weekend… fingers crossed. I'd like to involve all of my readers as well, having you submit photographs that you've taken using my advice, and then I'll post examples of what you've done.
If there is anything that you’d like to learn, let me know. If you see a photo I've taken and want to know how I achieved it, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll include it on the site.
I'm getting emails about what camera I use so I'll go ahead and answer that. I shoot with a Canon 30D that I bought about 4 years ago.
But, before you rush out an buy a $1500 camera set up, read my first photo article that will give you some advice on what camera to buy. Bigger is not always better… or necessary. But I'll elaborate more this weekend.
