So, my husband has been teasing me for a week or so that he picked me a present out all on his own this year. He asked me a few weeks ago if there was anything I wanted. I had told him one thing I wanted but then, a few days later, he said he found something else. Yesterday, he called and teased me that the “present” wouldn’t lay down and was hyper… insinuating that it was a puppy!! That was exciting..however, we had already talked about a new puppy not being a good idea on Elton’s little heart.
Today Brent called several times questioning when would be the best time to give me my present. Of course I wanted it ASAP because I was so excited that he was excited about picking out something for me. He had the present shipped to his work and one of his lady co-workers offered to take it home and wrap it up for me. When Brent came in from work today he had a beautifully wrapped package with fun decor on the ribbon.
I opened it and found this…..
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! He did so good 🙂 I am so very proud of him. It was exactly something I wanted. It wasn’t what i told him I wanted because I was just thinking of something I could utilize (a tall jewelry box bc I have stuff EVERYWHERE). I have a perfectly fine camera now. However, I have had it for several years and it is getting a bit worn out…I lost the case and never got a new, it has been dropped by others several times, etc… I’ve been talking about wanting to get a nicer one some day in the next year or so. In NYC I talked about wanting a good camera for all the beautiful things there! WELL, he went above and beyond! He got me this Canon G10. It got 5 of 5 stars on the Canon website. You know what, I’ll just take some of the “features” listed off the Canon site and post copy it below…I’M IN LOVE!!!

The camera is a perfect size! Yes, it is bigger than my last but that isn’t say much. I used a Canon Rebel recently. Now that was big! This one isn’t and it is even a better camera!! It has a long strap that will go around the neck of whoever may be taking a picture with it (to prevent drops..yeah, I dropped my old one too). I’m not crying anymore but this gift made me for sure cry like a baby!
Happy picture taking to me and to all!!! love ~ Megan
“I always thought that there was this one perfect person for everybody in the world, you know, and when you found that person the rest of the world kind of magically faded away, and, you know, the two of you would just be inside this kind of protective bubble, but there is no bubble, I mean if there is you have to make it, I just think life is more than a series of moments, you know, we can make choices, and we can choose to protect the people we love, and that’s what makes us who we are and those are the real memories..” -Forces of Nature
