It's the little things...

that make life so pretty

I've had a couple of dreams recently in which I'm carrying around a camera.
I wake up from these dreams with an overwhelming urge to capture SOMETHING... but what? I don't have anything super exciting going on.
Then, last night, as I layed there watching The Mr. play guitar next to me, it hit me.
This is gorgeous. This is worth capturing.
[Yes, I think HE is gorgeous, but I mean the moment]
Sure, it's something I experience almost daily... but it's a pretty part of my life that I don't want to forget. [Or a pretty part of my life that the people who come after me can get a glimpse of.]
All to often, I find that my pictures are all the same. The girls squishing together for a group shot, someones face smiling back at my cameras lense, arms over shoulders & making silly faces...
I just want to capture the moments as I remember them.
Therefore, today starts my hunt for a new camera. Mine looks like it's been through World War I &II.
Any recommendations?
It can't be a big clunky guy... he needs to fit in my purse or The Mr.'s pocket!

[i know how you love carrying my belongings in your pockets, babe.]
My legs occupying his pj's...

13 love notes:

  1. Toooo cute you're wearing his pj's! Love it... and hmmm, I have a big camera too, I guess... let me know if you find a lil' one.

    and haha I make natt carry all my stuff in his pocket too!

  2. I love my Canon HD's red and pretty!

  3. Publish your findings! Mr. P is harassing me to get a new camera because mine doesn't fit in his pocket!!

  4. hmm, i got a new samsung tl240 just recently. 14.3 megapixels and it has lots of fun "picnik"-type settings on it.

  5. My Hubs just got a Nikon Coolpix S8000 and he loves it! Totally fits in his pocket.

  6. Hi cutie! I can DEFINITELY help you (part of my business is consumer electronics) - email me your price point and any specs (megapixels, zoom, other features, etc.) and I will send you a spreadsheet of options! Also the camera Meredith mentioned above is a good one - so is the TL220 which has the dual view where you can see the LCD panel on the front of the camera (great for self portraits, couple portaits, etc.) :) Happy camera shopping, let me know if I can help!

  7. i love my canon, it's green and comes in tons of different colors it's right around 150 dollars and it's tiny. anything canon i would recommend

  8. cute cute cute blog! Proud follower now! You should come follow me too! :)

  9. awww this post was so sweet!!! I love the photo of you in his pants. :)

  10. I like my Canon Powershot too. I can get great pictures out of that little package if I use it right. And it fits in my back pocket... or your purse or the Mr's pocket :-)

  11. I love lounging around in boy PJ's! Especially when said boy is playing guitar right next to me!

    Wait... I can't remember the last time I've been so lucky! :) Hold on to that one lady! And if you find a camera you like, let us know... I'm jonesing for a new one too.
