A Whole New World

I got it! I got it! I got it!
I have been saving for M.O.N.T.H.S. and it is finally mine!
All I have been asking for for my birthday, Mother's Day, money and Best Buy gift cards in order to help me in my quest for a DSLR.
You see, my kind and loving hubby did not like my idea to get a new camera. (Sound familiar?) "Our camera works fine."
So I knew there would be no agreeing to spend that kind of money on a "non-necessity" this year. That's when I decided that I could start saving...and eventually I would have enough to get it.
The best surprise was for my birthday. Jeff gave me some of his very own, stashed away money, to go toward the purchase. This was his way of saying, "I give! And I love you!" Best present ever! Ok, almost...for our anniversary, even though I only had about half the money saved up, Jeff said that I could get it. (This is an example of how our relationship works...most of the time I'm in charge of the money and spending...but every once in a while...not so much!) So after our anniversary dinner Tuesday night, we went on another little excursion...

The kids and I have been playing ever since...

Oh camera, how I love thee. Let me count the ways. We are still getting to know eachother but you have brought a whole new outlook on life!

Thank you to my hubby and all of you who have helped support the cause :)

Until next time...!
