Does anyone else out there think their computer hates them? Well I’m starting to think all electronics have a thing against me…. you may think I’m kidding. I realized yesterday that since college I have gone through AT LEAST 5 computers! That’s almost a computer every year! That’s absolutely ridiculous! And I don’t even do anything illegal, I swear 🙂

So currently I am borrowing a computer from my amazing dad, because let’s be honest I can’t go 24 hours without a computer. Who can these days? But I think tomorrow we are going to go out and buy a new computer that will last more than 6 months… unlike my last 2 computers! I had one of those moments yesterday where I was tempted to take my computer, stand out on the balcony and throw it into oncoming traffic. Of course I didn’t, but the thought crossed my mind multiple times. We all have those thoughts, especially when dealing with electronics… or is it just me?

Anyhooo….I’m a member of an on-line community called Photography Mentor and it’s where photographers can come together and communicate and learn from each other. We had a video chat with one of my favorite photographers Jasmine Star tonight. The forum got to ask any and all questions, and she answered almost all of them. It was such a great learning experience and one of the main things she said was to blog every day! So that’s my goal… to at least try blogging every day. You may end up reading some silly stories about my afternoon with the girls I nanny, or the movie that I just watched but hopefully most of the postings will be of the beautiful people I get the joy of photographing!

Hope everyone is looking forward to the warm up we are going to experience this weekend! It’s suppose to be in the 30’s and 40’s, holy cow it’s shorts and sandals weather! Don’t worry once it’s 50 degrees outside I will be back in my flip flops and as happy as a clam 🙂 I’m so not a winter person, but I would be sad without the change of seasons. I know it really makes no sense at all… but I am looking forward to winter going away!

Unfortunately there will be  no picture on this post, since my computer crashed and I haven’t moved all my pictures from my external hard drive yet… SORRY. There will be many more after this weekend… 🙂

iPod Lifesaver!!!

I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this, but earlier this summer my computer crashed and with it went my entire iTunes library. Unfortunately my external hard drive didn’t have all the songs my iPod did so I lost almost 3,000 songs. Yes I have almost 4,000 songs on my iPod, it’s a little ridiculous! ANYWAYS…. I was completely devastated to have lost that much music which I love to have in my car or work out to. I’ve been putting off syncing my iPod and iTunes because I did not want to have all those songs erased from my iPod. All the tools I found online were somewhere around $25 or more, and I didn’t want to pay that, because I knew there had to be a way you could do it for free. They are my songs, on my iPod and I wanted them for FREE!

To make a long story short, I was googling… yes I do that often… and I found this AMAZING site, . It’s seriously a LIFESAVER! The best part about it, it’s FREE!!! FREEE!!!! I could not be more excited about this! I found it just as I was about to sync up my iTunes and iPod and wanted to jump for joy!  Not many things are free these days!

So if this has happened to you or anybody else, pass this site along to them! Now I’m off to sync my iPod and iTunes FINALLY after months of listening to the same music over and over again on my iPod, I will have NEW MUSIC!!! 😀

For her husband…

I made a quick trip to Iowa for a day, but it was well worth it! My friend’s sister wanted to have some pictures taken to give to her husband who is over in Iraq. We had such a great time doing the shoot, and she looked absolutely gorgeous! I really hope he loves the pictures! I’m so jealous because she is heading off to Italy this week to meet him there. They get to explore and just have some quality time together before he heads back to Iraq!

Have a safe trip and thanks for having me over!
