So I am way behind- Christmas was crazy like usually and I feel like the holiday lasted FOREVER! Heck it's still feels like it's the holiday. We went to two Cabins, a trip to Denver with the wedding, another reception back here, New Years and it's party and than the packing and cleaning and getting ready for the move and listing our house. It's been slightly crazy.
The trip to Denver for the wedding feels in itself lasted at least two weeks. It was an insanely long drive considering that we hit the worst storms and what would usually take 4 hours took 9 or 10. When we would pass cars they would flick(more like rocket shoot) snow at our windshield and I kept trying to get a good picture of just right before it would hit the windshield but never got it before it got dark(and Dave got annoyed with me whipping out the camera every time a car passed), but I did get some good ones of the many snow plows we came across. Nevertheless it isn't a trip I'm going to forget anytime soon and I'm not looking forward to taking the same one again in two weeks.Anyways the wedding (my nephew Klints) turned out well and we got some good shots- (they kinda had me be a second shooter for their wedding since their original photographer was her grandfather and he usually just shoots landscapes) It was though really really COLD!! no snow but freezing cold! I was excited to use the new lens I got for Christmas (85mm 1.8) I'm in love with it-it's so quiet and nice and heavy- I love it, did I mention that. My next want is some nice fingerless gloves cuz' my hands were burning red and hurt so bad from the cold that day shooting. (Honey this would be a hint for you for a gift for my soon birthday-got it) While we were in Denver we took a day and drove down to Colorado Springs to look at apartments and one thing I found out about Colorado springs is that they have no D.I.- :( It's so sad, I am a frequent shopper at D.I. and most (okay almost all) of our kids toys come from D.I. I'm sure there are other thrift stores but me and DI we go way back :) my favorite Christmas I remember was when my parents were too poor so all of it came from DI- those were some cool toys that year. Other than that I loved Colorado springs, it was beautiful and it just felt well right.
Anyways It's time for bed for me so I can keep trying to stay on top of all that is ahead of us. Wish me luck-
