Update and a few changes

Okay okay, I know I did a horrible job keeping this up to date while planning the wedding. Really, there wasn't much to document. The planning went pretty smoothly. I did enjoy making some of the things for the wedding. I will post pictures of them later as well as the wedding pics.

The wedding day was lovely! It did however rain big time that afternoon and despite everyone telling me that it would stop in time, I couldn't help but freak out a little! Okay a lot! Who could blame me?

Anyway, the whole two weeks were totally amazing! I loved spending that time with Rob and not having to go to work or worry about this and that! I also love that we can be together that long and not get sick of each other, annoyed, angry, or whatever else. I completely enjoyed it!

Now that we are home and back to reality, I am enjoying my summer with the kids. I am doing a good job of keeping up with that blog now that summer is here!

This weekend I got a new toy!

A Nikon D3000!

I'm totally in love! I have had my eye on this camera for about a year now. The thing is, I'm still learning photography and learning to stay away from auto! My old camera lived on auto, not this one! So that is where the change comes in. Since it's time to get rid of the "Wedding Thoughts" title, I think it would be fun to do something similar to how I started this blog, with a picture a day. But not just a picture a day, I want to take at least one picture (in manual of course) everyday with my new camera. I think it would be fun to document my progress. It will be nice to see the changes over time. I'd like to shoot for a year but we will see. We all know how I keep up with my blogs. I don't! No matter, I am going to try it!

I will be learning some photography skills coming up. My sister and I are going to take a class with Chicago Photo Safaris. I am super excited about it! Actually, I'm looking forward to that weekend for more than just that class. My sister is coming and we are staying over night in Chicago. We are seeing DMB in concert also! I really think this is turning out to be a great year for me! I can only think of one other thing that would make it better! Those who know me well know what it is.

Anyway, the changes will be coming some time within the week and maybe some wedding photos as well. So far I have at least one pic for each day since I bought the camera. I will continue to take them and while I may not post them each day, there will be one for each day starting with the day the camera was purchased.
