I'm usually fast asleep at this time. But for some reason, I can't relax tonight. So, what better way to spend this extra time than surfing the net? Even my cats are sleeping. I can hear the soft snore of a kitty in the distance. But not me, I am as wide eyed as can be... I guess I'll just surf around until I get sleepy. Sorry for the boring post... :)

Last Christmas, I received a Canon Rebel camera from my husband. I knew that with a baby on the way, I was going to want the best pictures that I could possibly get. And the Canon Rebel has done that! It's an SLR camera with automatic and manual options. But, now my creativity is taking over me. I want to take even better, more unique photos. I went out and bought a set of close-up filters. I could make a quarter fill up about 75% of the frame! (I don't know who would want picture of a large quarter...) There is so much that I want to learn about the manual features, but I find it hard to grasp. If anyone knows of any good, easy to understand websites that explain f-stops and aperture in plain, easy to unserstand English, please let me know!

My creativity comes and goes. Lately, it has hit me hard! I want to create all kinds of things. I have really gotten back into my website, so I have spent a lot of my creative energy updating that. And while I was working on that, I thought I would give graphic design a shot. On top of that, Chip got me this great book for my birthday on photographing your baby. So I shot two rolls of film on her. And while I was at it (since I was inspired) I shot a roll on Chip. A few of those are posted on his page. Oh yeah, and I have this great idea for a Dream Theater skirt and/or shirt that I would like to sew. I haven't been in front of a sewing machine in years! And my watercolors...I haven't touched them in so long. Have I mentioned scrapbooking? I love to make scrapbooks...haven't done that in a while. Yikes! Where did I get all of this creative energy?!? I sure hope it sticks around for a while.

It has been six years to the day since Chip took me for that surprise hot air balloon ride and asked a question that changed our lives forever! It was such a special day that we continue to celebrate it every year.
The other special occasion on July 7th is my dear friend Kimmy's 27th birthday! May you have a wonderful birthday Kim! (I know it can't be that bad since you are celebrating on a beach in Florida!)

My Birthday = Holiday In July
It's only five days until I am the big 3-0... but really, it's no big deal to me. I couldn't be happier with my life and to me it's just a numbering system for all the wonderful years I have spent on this planet earth. However, since so many that are near and dear to me were born in this lovely month of July, it's more like a holiday than a birthday! I've been shopping and shopping over the past several days trying to find better than average birthday gifts for my family and friends. I've done pretty well for the friends, but I am finding it difficult to find a great gift for my mother. She turns the big 5-0 the day after my birthday. I like to be creative with my gift giving, but time is running out. Hmmm, guess I'll have to keep thinking...tick, tock, six days to go!!!
