Well, hello.

I'd like to introduce you to my new BFF, she does not have
a name yet...but, I'm open to suggestions. For now, I just
call her pretty. She was an Christmas present from Santa.
It's been so much fun playing with her. I bought her a super
cute camera strap from Etsy, she like's it. I can't wait to show
you what we have been up to.

  49. My blogging friends are so amazing!! I wish I could make you all dinner! Maybe someday??? = ) Vicki, the camera is a Canon - EOS Rebel T2i 18.0-Megapixel Digital SLR. Carrie, I'm still learning but getting better everyday! I think by the end of the year...hopefully I will know my way around "pretty". Thinking about taking some photo classes. I'm very happy with this camera.

  50. Well hello there beautiful! I am LOVING this strap! LOVE IT!
    This is a fantastic camera Val! I wanted to take a photo class too but learned just getting out in different surroundings, (mountains, downtown, etc) and shooting, shooting is the best way to learn!

  53. Hi Val,

    Thanks for visiting my blog:
    Get Off Your Butt and BAKE!

    I've also enjoyed reading about you & your site as well. Looks like your bff is similar to mine. I have a Canon EOS 5D MarkII. I love it, but there is certainly a lot of learning required to use them. Make sure that you learn Manual...NO flash! It makes all the difference in the world.

    Read. Read. Read.
    Forget. Forget. Forget.
    Read again!

    I look forward to trying some of those delicious recipes soon.
