As promised, here are some photos I took with my new lens! The focus is amazing!!! But this past weekend was crazy. My parents got new bedroom furniture, so I got their old furniture (which I’m not super excited about). I spent the weekend rearranging my room, working on homework and spending time with family. While moving the furniture from my parents room to my room, my mother and I came across some old photos and momentos in his drawers. I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the cards my siblings and I made for him! My sister wrote multiple cards that said my dad should bake a cake (actually it said bak a cake, but you get the picture). Anyways, enjoy!

Well tomorrow is Easter, and I don’t feel ready for it. I can’t believe it’s already April. Time is just going by so fast. Bad things and good things have been going on lately. And I can only hope for better things to come, especially this May (since my birthday is May 14th). As for the bad things, read yesterday’s post. As for the good things, I got a new camera lens this week! It is a 35 mm f/1.8 Nikon lens. I love it more than anything (well, not more than my fiance or family, but pretty close)! It is exactly what I have always wanted. The day I got my camera, I wanted a lens of this quality. I was able to get it with a little help from my fiance and my sister and brother-in-law. (It’s kinda an early birthday present!) Anyways, I’ve been playing around with it for the past couple days non-stop. I should’ve been working on papers, but I’ve got time for those. Haha! Monday’s post will showcase some photos taken with my brand new lens! I hope all of you have a Happy Easter!

My mind is filled with as many thoughts as the saturation of this photo. I have so much going on lately, and time just doesn’t slow down. And on top of everything else going on, I can’t stop thinking about this Nikon camera lens I want more than anything. I love photography so much. I just hate when I’m in low-light and my lens doesn’t give me the results I want. This lens has a bigger range in aperture, which is exactly what I need. And I’m photographing a wedding in May. So if I got this now, I’d have plenty of time to experiment and get to know the lens. Hopefully, if I’ve done my calculations right, I might (just might) be able to get this for myself! If not, here’s to wishing.
