I’m 30 today!!!

Just a quick post before I finish packing for our trip to Colorado to see Dave’s wonderful family…

071/365 - Happy Birthday to Me!!!

I’ve wanted a new baby for awhile now…and I finally got one for my birthday!! Don’t freak out though…I’m talking about my new camera…the Nikon D90!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it! I haven’t had time to really play with it yet, I did use it to take today’s 365 photo! …and the one I will post below. I can’t wait to try it out on all of Coen’s cousins in Colorado!

I will be sad to see the D40 go to a new home though…I really loved that camera and was soooo used to feeling it in my hands. So far the new one is really awesome…and will allow me to have a little more freedom with photography. I can wait to sit down and read the manual page by page (yes, I’m that kind of girl).

I’ve certainly been a blog slacker these days…but after I return I think my batteries will be recharged and I’ll be posting like mad! That said…I have to go now and start packing! And I have so much to say too…sigh.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!!!! I may sneak in a post during the trip…but if not I’ll see you all when I return!

    Happy Belated birthday! Has it been that long since I’ve dropped by? So sorry!!

    And congrats on getting the D90! The image quality rivals that of the D300 and possibly even better. Have you tried out the video yet? What a NICE bday present. πŸ™‚
