Life is Beautiful: Introducing Photo of the Week!

With all of the pennies we've saved grocery shopping using the tips from my last post :), we recently bought ourselves a fancy schmancy DSLR camera. We've visited some amazingly beautiful places & we have some exciting trips ahead of us, so we were in the market for a camera that could capture our adventures & grow with us as we learned & developed as hobby photographers. It was a splurge & something we spent months researching,* but we finally bit the bullet when we realized we needed to give ourselves some time to figure out how to use the thing! Since we have this fun new toy, we want to share some of the images we've captured here on the blog. So be on the look out for our Photo of  the Week.

This week, we actually have 2 photos! You may have noticed the new masthead at the top of the blog. Both the masthead (#1) & the photo above (#2) were captured at the UNC Botanical Gardens. A couple weekends ago, we spent the afternoon at the gardens with our friends Jeff & Melissa. While the boys played giant chess, us ladies put our cameras to work & tried to capture the beautiful Carolina spring day. I don't think the photos do it justice... Spring in Chapel Hill is (well...was) nothing short of spectacular. Too bad it's starting to feel a lot like summer around here...

*If you are in the market for a new camera,  check out Probably the most useful/helpful resource out there for unbiased reviews of every kind of camera/lens you could imagine. Also, I owe a big thank you to my uber-creative friend Brittany who answered my endless camera questions & LizFay for giving me a crash course on the Nikon d90 while she was down for her spring break. She didn't know we'd put her to work, but she was a great sport! Thanks friends!
