"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

I know what you are thinking.... 'its not even Christmas lady!' But I'm already thinking of my New Years Resolution. I normally don't make one, mostly because the ones I need to make all seem so cliche. Plus I like to buck the popular crowd. :)

BUT this year, this year I have a resolution. For I have finally ordered myself a new speedlight, and my resolution is to take more everyday pictures of my family. Of course I have snapshots, but I HATE using the pop up flash.... it makes the pictures so gross looking, so I find myself missing out on way too many shots at night because I don't want to use the pop up, or I end up with a 'drunk' family because the flash caused their eyes to close (*cough* husband *cough cough*)

I can't wait for it to get here! Merry Christmas to me. Now if I can only talk my husband into that new lens......

If you can talk him into one, go ahead and ask for two, I could use a new lens!!
