Happy Birthday to Me!

I turned the ripe old age of 34 and what a great age to be! I woke up to many Birthday messages, phone calls, texts and visits. A lovely lunch with school friends uncovered the most wonderful surprise present of an accompanied 3 hour photography short course. The person running the course will also lend me a camera which I can try out. My birthday present from Malcolm will be a new camera! My birthday present from my parents will be to actually do the running around and buying while in Singapore before our holiday in April.

As I was admiring all the beautiful photos of Cinderella Castle at WDW taken by DISboard members, I was hoping that I would be able to have great photos myself from our trip come this December. So now I have just over 9 months to practice, starting with our cruise to the Mediterranean. I am now trying to read the photography magazine that Malcolm bought as well as photography forums to help with camera choice.

As we drove home today from a yummy Japanese Birthday dinner listening to Disney podcasts, it really became apparent how lucky I am. The kids have picked up our Disney infatuation. They now constantly ask to play "Disney Trivia" where we try to stump them with questions about anything Disney. Their retention rate is incredible! We are about to go on a Disney cruise, I will have a fancy schmancy camera to take great Disney photos with, I found out that there is a Disney store in Rome, and I ended up only paying half price for Malcolm's birthday present because of a stuff up. Life is good!
