i'll be honest, i didn't care much about this royal wedding. well maybe "didn't care" is the wrong phrase. but i just didn't see the big deal about two people i don't know getting married. then i woke up this morning at 6 am to the sound of organs and singing on tv. my dad was watching the royal wedding. (i thought this was kind of funny.) i must admit, i felt a little excitement watching these two lovely people sneaking glances and smiles at each other as the formality of the ceremony went on. it was very sweet and i felt a little emotional thinking of my own upcoming wedding. (almost a month away!!!) i was also surprised to see that kate's top part of her dress looks just like the jacket i'm having made to wear for my ceremony and she had a bouquet that looked a lot like the bouquet i'm going to carry! i guess i think like a princess. (i am so joking.) all in all, i think kate looked absolutely lovely and william is adorable. (and i got excited when i caught a glance of the beckhams...singing a church hymn! haha!)

today, like most days lately, is a gloomy day. it's been grey and rainy with a chill in the air. perfect for staying indoors and experimenting with my new camera! (canon 60d)
i really still need to sit with both my camera and the instruction manual to really understand what it can do, but for now i am taking pictures regardless of whether or not i really know what i'm doing!
my soldering station. where the magic happens.

lucy is wondering when the sun is going to shine again.
it looks like spring is finally here.
i'm also going to try and set up my etsy shop very soon. hopefully by the end of the week. look out for it!
