Birthday Week

My birthday celebration started last weekend when my parents were up from Dallas to celebrate all of the August birthdays. (Mom, Grandma, mine, and my aunt-whew!). Tim gave me his present early (good husband!) and I couldn't love it more. He got me a Canon Rebel T3 and a fancy 75-300mm lens to go with it. Score. While I am the first to admit that I am NOT photographer, I do love taking pictures. Plus, Tim made the point that in the next few years, we have tons of things we'll want to capture. Glad he thinks ahead. I was just thinking about amping up the blog since the iPhone photos were getting old. 

Here are a few pictures from the last week (iPhone and Rebel, because sometimes it's hard to carry a giant camera around.

Playing around with my camera at my grandparent's house. 

Cara, circa 1991. 

Luckily, my sweet friend Laura is an amazing photographer. While we were playing around after dinner, she snapped these few of me and the hubs. 

Does anyone want to keep this little girl until December for me? I want her now, but our stupid apt. won't let us.
I am so incredibly blessed. 

While this week was AMAZING, my heart is heavy due to two tragic and untimely deaths. 
Mikey and Kelsey- give Rachel a huge hug for me and enjoy the view up there. You will be missed.
