my canon t2i rebel is here!

*all photos in this post are not edited. 

I always had the secret desire to get a dslr. It never really made sense for me to invest in one since I don’t take photos too often but since I started this blog, I found every reason to get one. Coincidentally, my brother decided that he wanted to upgrade and I decided to buy his dslr over from him! I enjoy taking photos of things I love, but am not super interested in photography per se. I gain a lot of satisfaction in taking high resolution and clear photos, but definitely do not find much pleasure when I try to delve too much into the technology in itself.

I am a very lucky girl to be blessed with such a beautiful home and a great place to practice my photography. I enjoy taking photos of my mom’s garden as there are always flowers in full bloom.

Not to mention, I love taking photos of the animals. I sometimes think that they are so lucky because they never really have a bad look or a bad expression.

gâteau diane recipe

To me, birthday cakes are an integral part to any birthday celebration. I am quite sticky about this, and maybe a tad too opinionated. I always feel that no matter how great a birthday celebration is, something is always missing when there is no birthday cake.

Just as I am thinking a little more about why I feel this way, I guess what makes a birthday really special is during that couple minutes where the whole group, as one, dedicates a birthday song to that person. It is really that couple of minutes that everyone comes as one, and focuses on wanting to give joy to someone else. In a society where we many a time take things for granted and move too quickly, stopping for a couple of minutes to appreciate someone’s life really makes a difference.

diy dog leash

I’ve always had a really tough time buying the right leash for Fudge. Since leashes are really…nothing more than a piece of material with a snap hook to me, I don’t fancy paying $20 for a simple leash. I have walked into a pet store at least 10 times with the intention to buy a leash, only to find myself walking out without buying anything.

olympic game farm

While at Sequim to pick loganberries and strawberries, we decided to visit the Olympic Game Farm. Jon and I are easily excitable when it comes to animals. We enjoy interacting with the exotic wildlife and have done some fairly dangerous things like…taking pictures with a tiger when sitting next to it :P Animals are so unpredictable, which makes the experience really exciting!
