i'm in love

Yesterday we celebrated my sister and I's birthdays. Thanks to my amazing parents (ok my mom does the shopping, but my dad's name was on the card :o) I am now the proud owner of an awesome new lens and a fabulous camera strap.

The lens is the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6. Now that I have such a fancy shmancy lens I am going to have to really learn how to use my camera. Actually, speaking of learning about using a camera... Meredith over at La Buena Vida is running a series called 12 Weeks to Better Photography. She has shared some great tips!!

I first saw the camera strap on Kelle Hampton's blog, Enjoying the Small Things. (As a side note if you've never checked out Kelle's blog you need to. She is an awesome photographer and an amazing writer.) You can find the strap here. Chris is slightly less than thrilled that my camera has gone girly, but I love it!

I'll leave you with a pic of our family of three from dinner last night. Have a good one!

Oh, gosh, LOVE that camera strap. I know I could never convince my husband it was a good idea, but I'm glad you did, because it's super super cute!
