Camera Lens Update

Just in case anybody was wondering, I am LOVING my new 50mm lens for my Nikon camera.
I was able to test it out while on vacation last week and I'm really excited with the results. 
Of course a little more practice always helps, but I think it was well worth the purchase!
Here are some  pictures

I realize I'm no professional, however it's amazing the difference in clarity one lens can make!  I'm excited to use it more!

By the way I have been back from vacation for almost a week now and I'm still struggling to come out of my Ocracoma.  For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it's the state of mind you slip into when you visit Ocracoke favorite place in the world. 

Ahhhhh, thank god for Friday.  Enjoy your weekend!

Hair today, gone tomorrow...

My hair is was long.
Like really long.
Longer then it's been in a really long time, and that's long!

(Past Boob Length)

I have been toying with the idea of cutting it for awhile but could never bring myself to do so. 
However, lately I've been hearing about a lot of bad things happening to good people.  People that I love and care about.  I guess the old saying "when it rains, it pours" has some truth to it.
I've struggled to try and figure out what I could do to offer comfort or give back, and while I know it's not much, hopefully it will bring a little happiness to somebody who needs it.

SO, I decided to bite the bullet and chop all my hair off for Locks of Love.  In case you have been living under a rock and are unfamiliar with this organization, they create hair pieces from donated hair for children suffering from long term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. 
If I was going to chop my hair, this was a great reason to do it!

Here's what I'm left with today
A little shorter than I had planned, but it will grow back and well worth the cause!
