I got a new camera a few weeks ago and have been slowly figuring out how to use it. I stress the slowly part, because the first morning I took it out I immediately got frustrated when the pictures weren't turning out as marvelous as I expected. I was about ready to claim that I had received a defective piece of crap, when Wade reminded me that this will be a learning experience and I need to just take my time and read the manual. He's always good at calming me down and making sure I listen to reason. We did figure out how to do a few things, but I felt like I struck gold when my cousin’s husband was able to teach me a TON about the camera and what all the features meant. Just being able to know how to adjust the settings in different situations has helped me so much.
But the best part was that he offered to take some pictures of us after my other cousin's vow renewal. Why can’t we have a professional photographer following us around all the time, instructing us to go into perfect lighting situations?

What did you do over Memorial Day weekend? Any fun adventures?

Such was the case today when I filled a tote with all the craft supplies I could fit. Now, as we're almost to our destination, I have yet to actually complete anything. At least I had options, though.
Speaking of packing, I'm embarrassed of how much I bring on trips. Thank goodness we're driving, so I could load up the car. Each trip I tell myself that I'm going to be really good and only pack the bare essentials. I think about exactly what I'll wear each day, pack just that, but then come back hours later and throw in everything in my closet just in case. Then I fill another bag full of stuff for good measure. My worst fear is that I get to my destination only to realize I've forgotten my underpants. Oh, the horror! Is anyone else an over packer?

I love thinking back on our wedding day, and Wade and I talk about it often. We joke now about how shell-shocked we both were right after we left the chapel as the photographer followed us around telling us to do some crazy pose. Weddings are whirlwinds and wonderful celebrations to bring all of your loved ones together to share in your special day, but marriages are something even more special. They don’t get as much of the limelight since they’re not as flashy or finite, but if you’re lucky they’ll keep going and going.
