It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!

my newest toy

My dashing law student is almost done with school (he graduates in December! I'm so proud of him! Three cheers!) which means he no longer needs the Amazon gift cards we continue to earn through swagbucks to spend on school materials.


after saving up...and saving up...I finally purchased this last month:

A Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Except that I didn't really purchase it as I got it for FREE (which is so much better!)

This is the first fixed lens I've owned and it does take a little getting used to. But I'm excited about the narrower depth of field that is now at my fingertips, as well as better quality when working with low-light situations. I've enjoyed experimenting with it in my kitchen (hopefully a sign that more of our favorite recipes will find a way on here!) and have already had the opportunity to use it in several portrait sessions this month (photos coming soon!)

Oh -- and if you have not yet joined the swagbuck bandwagon -- you really should start.


Cuz' it really works. [smile]

What if woke up this morning and found the only things you had left were the things you thanked God for yesterday?
~Terry Shock

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
Psalms 107:21

I will mention the loving kindnesses of the Lord and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has bestowed on us, and the great goodness which He has bestowed...according to His mercies, according to the multitude of His loving kindnesses.
Isaiah 63:7
