Thirty before 30

{purchase a digital SLR} √
I'm So excited to announce that I now own a Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera!!! A birthday present from the bestest boyfriend ever! I used to take so many pictures with my old Canon Rebel 2000 SLR 35mm, that is until I lent it to my brother {many years ago} and he returned it with a broken back. Since it was a big chunk to get it fixed, I would put the film in and duct tape the back shut! It worked, but once I got the pictures developed I could tell they just weren't 100% quality. So over the years, I have relied on my sleek little mini Powershot to capture road trip memories, day trips, family events, blog snapshots... Great camera, but very limited. And the awesome thing about my new camera is that I'm able to use the three attachment lenses that I already have, including a macro lens and a zoom. I can't wait to take it on our first trip this year!

I have that camera! I love it...but the lens isn't working, as of July, so I've been bummed for awhile. Thanks to a co-worker, she has let me borrow a Nikon, which I'm getting used to.

I love you bucket list. Hmm, maybe I should start one! :)
