2018 Catch the Moment 365 – Week 2

Hello! It’s a new week, with new photos! The theme this week for the Catch the Moment group is Goals/Wish for the Year, and for me, that’s my Jan 11 photo. I want to get much more fit than I currently am, and am paving the way for that now.

Without further ado, here are the photos!

008 | Mon, Jan 8 ~ Homer painted a still life of a bowl of apples and oranges in school. His art makes me so darn happy! I love displaying it on the walls. This one is hanging above my desk right now.

2018 Catch the Moment 365 – Week 1

Happy new year, everyone! I hope 2018 is already off to a good start for you and your families! I decided to come back and do another 365 Project this year. It was good to take a break for a while, and now I’m ready to take on this photo challenge of posting a photo a day for a year. Let’s dive right in!

001 | Monday, Jan 1 ~ This is the first photo I took in 2018! We took it easy and stayed home this year, watched the New Year’s Eve countdown in Time Square on TV, then at actual midnight, Homer and I were all snuggled in his bed for the story portion of his bedtime routine. I paused mid-reading The Hobbit to Homer to wish him a happy new year and kiss his soft cheek before he fell fast asleep! Then I left his room, kissed Joe and wished him a happy new year, and took Ashton out for his last potty break of the night. I was surprised by the beautiful full moon! And took a full moon / new year selfie, because why the heck not, right? Maybe I’ll end this year long photo series with a selfie, too!

My Very First DSLR Camera!

Can I just say how excited I am? I am really excited! I just got my first DSLR!! My wonderful husband got it for me, after I’d been jonesing for one for a while now. Especially since I took my first photography class this spring. It was called Momtography, put on by Beryl Ayn Young. I’m glad that I still have access to all the videos, because I’m still re-watching them, and learning more. Anyway, I was able to practice the steps in that class with the help of my wonderful sis in law, Cinnamon, who loaned me her camera, a Canon Rebel T5i! I loved it! And when I went researching to see what I might want to get for myself, I saw there were a few newer models in that same line. So, Joe got me the Canon EOS Rebel T6i, and it’s pretty rad. I look forward to taking and sharing a lot of pictures from it!

Even Homer is excited about learning more about photography, because the other day, he said excitedly, “Mama, let’s go out and take pictures of nature together!” So I got my new camera, and he took his iPad, and here are some of the images we took on our outing together!

Hello, and Happy Spring 2017!

Hello, Happy Spring, and how are you?? Where did we last leave off? Oh yes I believe I was writing about how I was all caught up on my photo posts! Apparently I was so excited, I got carried away celebrating with a raucous party, there were chandeliers and those champagne glass towers and ice sculptures and acrobats, and next thing I knew, five months had passed!

Ok, not really, in reality, time just passes by like some sneaky ninja and I don’t even realize how much of it has passed until it has already gone past! And I don’t mean like the sneaky kind of ninja that my pets think they are when they hide only one part of their body and think I can’t see them. Like an actual stealth creature that I have no idea is whooshing past me.

I guess it’s not fair to say that I had NO idea. I mean, I realize time passes.

…Ok, so! Moving on, in the direction of something resembling a point, I’ll say this ~
