Carmen’s mention of her fun, new iPhone made me think of a couple of gifts I’ve received lately. One was given to me by my sweetie, and the other, I gave to myself. We are both very generous to me. 🙂

I had no idea that’s what she was thinking of getting me for my birthday, so I was VERY surprised. For Valentine’s day (three days later), she gave me a pair of amethyst earrings and a matching necklace. They are beautiful as well, but you’re more likely to see me wearing my diamonds, since I wear them almost exclusively.

I can hardly wait to get out on weekends when the weather is nice and start taking some photos. It’s such a pro-level camera, that it’s forcing me to learn more about shutter speed, exposure, aperture, etc, since it has NO presets. Yikes!

Anyway, it takes absolutely beautiful photos, and it’s very fast. Eventually, I will post some photos after I’ve had a while to fool around with it more. In the meantime, here’s a sweet-looking pic of Milo. (click it to enlarge) You wouldn’t think with that angel face that he can be such a mischievous little devil! 🙂

  2. Congrats on all your gifts. Although not as recent, I’m sure you count JP among your gifts, too. Of course, you know I’m partial to the camera. Now you need a SmugMug site for all your great new pix!

  3. As of reading this post I’ve decided that Feb. and March a great times of the year for presents. Mostly because at least here it’s yucky out and cold and dreary and one doesn’t have anything to look forward too and then…. a gift. It’s almost better.
