I've been absent for a little bit, but for a good reason. I wanted to come back and be able to show you pictures from my new....

My fiance' surprised me last week with an early wedding present. He said that he didn't want to wait till the day of the wedding so that I can learn how to use it before our trip to Maui. The first thing I did, of course, was order this to go with it...

Shane knows that I read Kelle Hampton's blog religiously and so in the spirit of being just like her I ordered the same camera strap, but in a different color. Her blog has made me laugh, cry, dream and certainly inspires me, so now with my new camera I feel like a whole new phase of life is coming on...

I can't wait to show you some of the pictures I've been taking! I'm really not any good at it yet, so any websites or advice you wanna direct me to feel free!!

We went to Memphis this weekend to work with a dance instructor from Fred Astaire dance studios for our first wedding song. (I'll post that video later today...) We have a lot of work to do on that...but,

One of my favorite parts of the weekend?? Eating at the Blue Plate Cafe'. It's one of those..." If you ever go to Memphis, you have to....!!! " places. I had chocolate chip pancakes; they were so good!!


  1. mmmm chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite!
    YAY for the new camera! I have a Canon Rebel as well and LOOVE IT - it's just a little overwhelming at first, there is a lot to learn!

  2. I am SO jealous! I am dying for a nice camera! I'm also really jealous you're going to Maui! And who am I kidding, I'm really jealous you're getting married! :o)

  3. That camera strap is a beaut. I'm in love. What a nice gift.

  4. congrats on the new camera! i love pictures and that strap! AND how was Fred Astair? My bf & I won dance lessons from there but havent gone...OH also next time you are in Memphis I have a list of places for you to eat at :)
