I am a wife, homeschool mom, a hiker, and a photographer living in Oklahoma. I love beautiful light and being in the woods. I share what I love on this blog, be they trails, pictures, or homschooling curriculum. Thanks for stopping by!
My husband got my birthday present in the mail! My birthday is not until November 11th(eleven, eleven it’s easy to remember), so this made me a little worried he would decide to not let me know what it was or have at until then!
Patience is not one of my strengths.
I was at the computer in the dining room and he decided to open the package in our living room(just a few feet away). “Don’t look” he said.
Is he kidding?
I am good so I did not look.
Then I start hearing this, “WOW, it is a lot heavier then I thought.” and “I wonder how this works” I started yelling that I was going to look if he did not cut it out!
Then he said, “I guess I could give it to you now but then you would not have anything to open for your birthday.”
“That is okay, we are going hiking for my birthday.” I was trying to sound all calm but I really wanted to have my gift NOW!
Did I mention I am horrible at waiting(pregnancy was not fun for me, 9months of waiting!)?
So finally he brings over a card reader and sets it in front of me. “Here you go.”
Then then a little bit later he asks for my camera, still not letting me see what else he got.
Then he said, “smile”! While taking a picture of me with my new lens!!!
I was jumping up and down and squealing!
What can I say? I like camera equipment!
The only problem was that it was nap time and all my subjects were asleep.
It was the first time I was happy when one of them woke up early!
It had nothing to do with the fact I kept going in their room.
I got to have some fun while hiking this morning! For all the camera buff’s out there. It is a 50mm 1.4!
