My New Camera

   As you may or may not know on Wednesday it was my birthday. People asked me what I did on my big day. Did I party? Well to be honest I'm not much of a birthday party gal and I don't throw myself little shindigs. Plus having a birthday during the week days doesn't lend itself well to evening parties. Instead Jonathan and I decided to switch or "date evening", which is typically Thursday evenings, to Wednesday and we had a lovely evening together with no homework. It was devine! Jonathan cooked me a tasty chicken and rice meal, I opened my gifts and then we went out for ice-cream. It was such a perfect night!

   Would you like to know what I got from my hubby for my birthday? This gift totally blew me away as I would randomly drop hints to Jonathan about wanting a small camera but knew it was never in the budget and so realistically knew it would never happen. But much to my shock and pure delight he surprised me with a new Canon Elph 300 HS. I guess having a birthday a few weeks after Boxing Day sales does come in handy!



   As I said I was blown away! I've been using my Iphone for all my random shots and it's always done the job but finally I have something that I can take everywhere with me and have some better quality shots. Obviously nothing fancy but it's a huge step up from my cell.

   Plus he's thrilled that I have my own camera now to because I won't have to always play around with his professional one for my simple shots, play with settings, change SD cards and forget to tell him...oops.


   I can't wait to start using it and being able to post photos quickly and easily with this camera! Talk about being spoiled!

*gasp* yay! how sweet of him :) By the way, the scenery from the window and the light on the wall is beautiful and makes me homesick.

Happy late birthday! Looks like you had a great one. New photo equipment is always such a great gift. And you're not alone on the whole shindig deal. I'd rather have a date night with my hubby any time! :)
