Happy Birthday To Me!

This year my 31st birthday happened to fall on Mother's Day. Yep, that makes for a double whammy in the present department. This year my husband do not disappoint and I received the best surprise ever. The present itself was not the surprise, no in this case the surprise came when my hubby surprisingly decided that I could order what I have been lusting over since my little man was born...a digital SLR camera! Just saying it out loud brings tears to my eyes (really it does.) And not just any SLR, mind you, but my dream camera, the camera that has consumed my thoughts for over  a year, a camera so beautiful, so fast, so light, that it could be none other than the Nikon d90 ! 

Oooohhhhhh isn't she just beautiful?

My perfect package arrived about 2 weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. While I am very much a novice, and have only used the auto feature, I can already see an amazing difference in the photos that I am taking (some of which have been featured on the blog this past week.) In the Fall I plan on taking some classes and I can't be more excited about the possibility of having some amazing pictures of my little man that will truly be wall worthy. (When I say wall worthy I mean hopefully they will be able to be enlarged the size of the actual wall.)

Other than my Mac this really is the most amazing present I have ever received and I hope that soon I will be able to get the skills to do this amazing camera justice. This camera is so light that I plan on taking it everywhere with me, so hopefully I will have many more beautiful pictures left to share with you. 

Happy, happy birthday to me! This camera is so worth the new year of wrinkles!
