say hello to my little friend

amazing, yes? i am still in awe. this here is my christmas gift from josh. my very own snazzy camera. the kind with more buttons and functions than i really know what to do with...but whose possibilities and capacities have me swooning with excitement. i am so eager to really get to know this camera. for now we are taking things slowly. we are just barely introducing ourselves and allowing for a bit of playful exchange. i dream of eventually knowing her like the back of my hand and exploring new terrain together with courage and ease. so far, i'm in love with how sharp her images are and the way her shutter clicks so clearly.
josh really dedicated a lot of time, thoughtfulness and sneakiness into the giving of this gift. he even sent me on a scavenger hunt on christmas morning in order to eventually walk into the room to find him snapping pictures of me with my new beauty. what a sweet surprise! it is something that i have been completely longing for but never really thought we could make work out. i was convinced that it was nothing but wishful thinking and so i never once seriously asked for anything of the sort. there were jokes and out-loud dreaming...but it wasn't anything that i thought would REALLY, truly happen. once i layed my eyes on it and a few minutes passed where i grasped that it really was MINE...i was overwhelmed with a bit of emotion and thrill and awe. what was i supposed to do with it!?!?
i am so.so.so thrilled and also find myself feeling a bit lost with how to maneuver through what this camera has to offer.
one thing for sure, this most certainly could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

yes....he was a sneaky one! on the day we took family pics (when jamie and matt brought their camera over) i came in the room to find josh on the computer looking at deals! :) so he spent a good amount of time on his little scheme! i have no doubt it will be a beautiful relationship.....just look at what you accomplished with your little wannabe!
