I began reading my friend Lacy's blog and was inspired! I used to love to scrapbook--it combined two of my favorite activities: photography and journaling. Unfortunately, once kids and life in general took over, my scrapbooking went down the tubes! I have finished Reese's first year and gotten to month 3 in Kinley's scrapbook and that's it. So I decided I would start a blog and document everyday life, as well as my kids growth.
In December 2010 I upgraded my old Canon Rebel G to a digital Rebel Xsi. I absolutely love it. I never had the patience to take pictures, write down all the settings I used, and learn from my mistakes after the pictures were developed. Now I have instant results. My photography skills have definitely grown this year. However, it is nowhere near where I would like it to be. I hope to document my continued growth with photography as well as Photoshop Elements 9 (which I got for Christmas).
