Thanks and Giving.

I've been thinking about getting a new camera... but the dang thing costs so much. I have a mental block when it comes to spending money, I just can't get over the hump. And when I finally do, I feel nauseous for a good few days...

Anyway, if I had a new camera, this shot would have been sharp. No motion blur, no grain... sharp. But truthfully, I am in love with it just the way it is. It looks like a dream. A dream of Lillie's fluff.

One of my favorite shots to date, all possible with my trusty old 60D.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Our turkey is brining in the fridge... going to taste juicy tomorrow. It was exactly a year ago on Thanksgiving that I felt Matilda kick in my tummy for the very first time.

Happy Thanksgiving.

And --- Jake's brother wrote a beautiful letter about his friend that passed away suddenly, leaving a wife and two daughters behind. It happened only a couple of weeks ago. Read it here on their blog. Makes me want to live more fully and try way harder.

I have money issues too. I want it and don't want to spend it! I do splurge sometimes, but I research hours and hours! After our sears trip it reminded me how much we save if we do our own pictures.

I just came across your blog (through another person who is doing "sunday photos" and they linked to your blog). What cute little girls you have. I have a 6 month old girl too (born May 4th---they can't be that off in age. Your Matilda looks close to the age of my Amelia and she's my 4th as well. I have two little boys and two little girls. Anyways, just wanted to say that I think you have a super cute blog and I LOVE the idea of doing Sunday photos. I may have to steal that idea :) And I actually just ordered a new camera this past week and I am still having a panic attack over it. They are too expensive---but then of course, totally worth it too!

I'm still buying the hand me downs as siblings upgrade I get their stuff. It's still good. I get a 'new' item and they don't have to fork out the full purchase price.

I gave Zac a camera of his own and now Poppy and Gus are sharing one. They are learning to hold the camera and frame the image by playing with them. I love going through the card to see their process.
