Rainy Aloha & Twitter

So, it's been raining for what seems like FOREVER here in normally beautiful, sunny and gorgeous Hawaii. I know what your thinking, "why are you complaining, you live in Hawaii..blah blah". Well, for the record, visiting and living here are two completely different things, and that's all I'm going to say about that right now! The water is looking brown out my back door, the grass is growing like a forest, flash flood watches, mud everywhere, no bikes, no walks and tons of icky bugs. What does this translate to for a stay at home mommy with two almost 2 year olds you ask? It means, no playing outside, tons of mosquitos, no day trips (unless it's to Target since they have covered parking), no photography shoots, no beach, no sand, no tan, watching movies and otherwise b.o.r.e.d inside!!! Ok, think I've let that one go for now! Please pray that it will be sunny for at least between the hours of 11-1 on Saturday for the twins 2nd birthday party! babies are going to be 2 years old on Sunday, YIKES, the time as flown by so fast, probably going to cry if I start talking about that right now. I'll save that for later!

Now, for my latest little addiction, TWITTER! I think I might just love it! I've been able to meet such amazing and wonderful people over these last few months. I feel so blessed to have each and every one of them in my life (even if it's just through the internet). I'm able to express my feelings, get opinions, advice and boosts of self esteem through such wonderful friends! I'm not too sure why I didn't start "tweeting" earlier, guess I just thought it was boring, umm I was wrong! I just want to thank all of you that I have met and talked with, you make me laugh when I need it most and sometimes for some of us, thats all we need to get through a tough day! No one judges you, everyone is just there to support, got to just love that!! If you don't have Twitter, come on...get it! Look me up @Navywife3619...I want to meet you!

I've been practicing my photography a lot lately, YAY..GO ME...everyone stand and clap!!! My husband got me Photoshop for mothers day and i've been playing around with that pretty much any free time I get! It's so much to learn and it's going to take me a while, but I am SO ready to dive in and get this going. I've also planned on starting a photography blog to document my start into the home business you think thats a good idea?

Thanks for listening...I'll be posting more after the twins party this weekend!! LOVE YOU ALL!!

So many things have been changing in my life lately, I feel I need to just let it all out! A few weeks ago my husband came home from work and told me that he wants me to start practicing my photography! Did you know that my dream is to be a professional photographer? Well, it is, and has been since I was very little...I just didn't think I was good enough to accomplish it. We went the very next day and bought my brand new camera, A canon T3i to be exact! I also got a telephoto lens, a camera bag and a tripod! Then we wandered over to the apple computers, and SURPRISE, he bought me a new Macbook Pro so that I can edit the pictures properly! OH EM GEE, I have the best husband ever!

The very next morning, before the sun came up, I was out in my neighborhood taking pictures of anything and everything I could lay my eyes on! I've never felt more like I was supposed to be doing something than when I was behind my camera lens that morning! Can a person have a "calling" for a profession? I certainly did and it's so stinkin' exciting! I can't wait to share some of my pictures with all of you! I'm thinking of starting a separate blog for my photography business. Any advice or thoughts? I have NO idea how to start something like that...can you tell, umm have you looked at this one? HA!

I'm hoping to get a few "volunteers" to let me practice taking their pictures soon. I have a fully packed weekend and plan on having my camera (and my pretty sweet damask and pink camera strap cover) around my neck to capture every single moment! Cinco De Mayo tomorrow night with my husband, craft fair, baby shower and family time on Sunday! I'm also hoping to get up super de duper early one morning and catch a sunrise on the other side of the island...anyone want to join me at o'crack early? LMAO, yeah...I didn't think so!!
