I have been complaining to my husband for quite some time about our camera. It's a cheaper digital and just doesn't take the kind of pictures I would like for it too. Since I have taken photography classes and have owned much nicer cameras, having to make the step down and use this one bothers me to no end. So, I would scour the internet and dream about all these nice digitals that I just knew Rob would never agree to. I emailed him links and would say things like, "Ooooooh, look at this one!" and "Imagine the kind of photos we could take of Will with this one." I hit him where it hurts. He loves our child more than anything, so I had to plant in his head all these super nice images of Will we could capture. I'm evil like that.
On Wednesday, Rob comes to my desk and hands me a box. He tells me that this was suppose to be my Mother's Day gift, but if I don't like it, the time is running out to return or exchange it, so he needs to give it to me now. I hesitated for about 1 second and then ripped into the paper to find my dream camera. He knew I was going to love it, because it was the exact one I had been whining for in all those guilt emails I sent him.
I can't wait to get out and take some pictures with it this weekend. If this experience has taught me anything, it's that nagging your husband does pay off from time to time. Persistance is key. Oh, and I have the best husband ever. But I already knew that.
Have a great weekend!
