Stella and Smidge

It was two years ago today that we brought Stella home. It was snowing like crazy and the girls got to come home early from school so we all drove out together. It was a year ago (on Christmas Eve) that we brought Smidge home for Stella. Even after a year of shenanigans I maintain that two dogs are better than one. They're also cute. Which is especially helpful when they rip open the garbage and spread it around the house. But now that I have my new lens those two seem to have gotten even cuter. I just hope this doesn't mean they're going to be getting into the kind of trouble that requires an even cuter face.


A New View



I've had a few cameras over the years and only two have allowed for interchangable lenses but having a specialty lens for my camera always seemed like an extravagance I couldn't justify. Especially when the lens that came with the camera took pretty darn good pictures. That didn't keep me from longing after the ones I felt would change my life. Words like zoom and macro and protrait lens weaving their way through my wish list. After I broke the auto focus on my standard lens the longing for a new lens turned into more of an obsession. An obsession that turned into a reality when Brad wrapped one up for me for Christmas. They didn't have one in stock so he made a mock up. That man is a mock-up making pro and if it weren't for the fact that it doesn't work, I think it would be my favourite of the two.


Merry Christmas

May your holidays be filled with glitter and light, joy and laughter, friends and family and good food.


Sneak Peek 2012

I'm not one to spoil a surprise. I'm also not above giving little hints. So without giving away too much, here is a peek at this year's Christmas card.


Add Another Candle to the Cake

These are from Canada Day.
It's too cold outside for the real ones.
It's still fun to have fireworks on my birthday.
Even if they remind me of the blinding light that sits on top of my cake now.
