Camera Envy

I can't believe we just bought a camera that cost more than it cost to deliver my last child. I can't believe my husband, who is the smart one of the family, thought it was a good idea. It started out as an idea, buy a better camera than the five year old 5 megapixel piece of junk that took five minutes of you holding down the button before it would actually take the picture, but then quickly grew in to an absolute obsession.

I thought it would take years of saving money, but something happened that enabled us to have extra cash to go along with the egg money I'd been saving for a hutch/buffet. Now the enormous empty space in my dining room is still there but we do have an amazing tool to capture memories of our family.

Not to mention we live in a beautiful area that screams to be photographed. Every day is a photo op. I still don't know how to work the darn thing, but I bought a book on it larger than my complete works of Shakespeare and I've been reading every conceivable thing online I can find. This could indeed be a stronghold.

I look forward to seeing your beautiful memories documented through photography. I think one day you will back on them and see them as priceless.

You will love having a great camera. It's worth the sacrifice of not havint a hutch!
