Happy birthday to me.

Yelp…another year older.  It’s the last hurrah for my twenties.

As I sipped mimosas poolside and reminisced on the past decade, I couldn’t help but think of all the great moments shared with family and friends.  Because I’m somewhat attached at the hip to my point-and-shoot, it just so happens there’s plenty of documentation.  Over the past decade however, my camera and I have become a bit of a running joke.  In college, the batteries would always die…in the years following, my camera would take ages to shoot…and most recently, my cameras have fallen victim to an intrigued 4 year old and the wrath of Katy Perry.

So it only seemed fitting to end the decade strong with a camera that…well…actally works.  Much to my surprise, Joey bought me one that not only functions properly, but also happens to be the most amazing thing I’ve ever owned.  It’s the Sony NEX-F3 SLR and it’s awesome.

So without further ado, here are the first few snapshots in what I hope will be a new era of picture-taking.

Royce could care less about the camera. He just wants to howl.

  1. Anne,
    Happy belated birthday from Auntie Yvonne and Uncle Dennis ;D
    We missed seeing you at the engagement party, but were pleasantly surprised to find Joey there! Lots of love to you both.
    Your blog is adoreable! Wish we were closer – we like a lot of the same things and could do some real shopping damage. Looking forward to visiting New Orleans and having you take me shopping (ooh, I mean sight seeing)

  2. Gorgeous!!! I am so excited for you & the new camera! You are always the camera queen which we all love and now you are going to wow us even more! Nice work Joey!

    And happiest birthday A!

    • Thanks Dom! It’s so much fun already! I’ll make sure not to bring it to any Katy Perry concerts, though. 😉 Thanks for the amazing pants…I can’t wait to rock them!!

Tell me what you think!
