Well hello there.
Yes, it's me, actually sitting down to work on a post that is not a Happy Homemaker Monday or a book review. For shame!!!
Honestly, I don't like seeing my blog like this, it bothers me because I feel like so much has been happening, and so much is going on in our lives, that I should be writing it down.
But time, time just slips through my fingers and I end up letting days, weeks and months go by without a proper blog post.
Not what I like to do, but it is what it is. Anyway, I am here right now and I just wanted to come in and chat a bit, catch you up on what has been happening, what we've been doing and so on.
As you may have noticed, or maybe you didn't, but I finally got a new camera.
My old camera has officially been packed up and set aside. It still works and will be kept as a back up, but I am so thrilled with my new one. My husband surprised me with a Canon Rebel T7. My previous was a Canon Rebel T2i and it has been a huge blessing for 10 years.
Yes, 10 years I had that camera. The poor thing was falling apart, the little plastic cover for the memory card won't stay shut, my battery compartment was also loose, the padding around the camera itself was coming unglued and you can even see where my fingers sit because it has worn completely down.
And yet, I still love it. It was my first big girl camera, and I'll always have it with me. I can't say that I'm not excited about my new one because I am, it's a blessing for sure and it's been a dream of mine to upgrade for many and I mean many years.
It has been a bit hard learning all the new ways to take photos, obviously being a newer model the menu is different, the way the camera itself works is different and so on.
It took me over an hour to finally enable my back button focus LOL
I enjoy it though, I have always loved learning new techniques and new technology, so it's been fun figuring this one out. It also helps that I have the cutest subjects that let me just snap pictures. They're the best, never complain, never say they don't look good in the shots and always willing to just sit there and let me go on snapping here and there.
