It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

It came in flash it seems but, the most wonderful time of the year is here! It’s the first day of December and we already had a day full of winter fun. In the afternoon, since my hubby volunteered to be Santa Claus, I went with some friends to the winter market on base and did a little shopping. The winter market is a place where little home shops can be in one place and sell their products. Yes, you read that right, my husband loves dressing up like Santa Claus and surprisingly he doesn’t scare the kids, they actually like him. Haha. Like, I was saying it was a fun time and Jason got to take a picture with Santa aka daddy. We were scared that he would recognize him and pull down his beard and ruin the illusion for the other kids but, he didn’t. Thank goodness.

Later in the evening, we went to the tree lighting event. There were brownies, hot cocoa, delicious apple cider, yummy food, and Christmas music. This was a great experience and to have been surrounded with friends made it so much more fun. It wasn’t the tree lighting at the Rocker Feller but, it was beautiful nonetheless. We made great memories already and it’s just the first day of December, I can only hope there’s more fun to come.

Capture Life’s Moments.

When I was growing up, I always had a camera in my face. Whether it be taking a picture or recording a family gathering. My parents were very good at capturing my childhood. One of my uncles took it to the extreme. He truly captured every moment in life. I am sure he has pictures and a video of my first time getting highlights in my hair. This being the reason I take pictures all the time. My camera is full of pictures of Jason and places we go to. My phone is out of memory from pictures of Jason. I take my camera everywhere, I barely use My IPhone camera. ( ironically, I took the picture above with my IPhone camera.) No, the reason I do not use my IPhone is not because I am out memory, I just prefer the picture quality of my camera.

Since, I love taking pictures and I want to capture any adorable moment of my son or our little outings in Japan. I use the Sony a5000, I could not live without it. It takes amazing pictures and it is so compact. It can easily fit in a small cross body and still have room for my wallet and phone. I get compliments on my pictures all the time and it is all thanks to the Sony a5000. I have been wanting to buy this camera for a long time and luckily one of my friends, who is an amazing photographer, was selling hers. It was practically brand new, it came with a brand new lens and with other accessories, it was a great deal. Not long after she sold it, she bought another one. That’s how good it is. So, if you are on the hunt for a good camera, get the Sony a5000. It is about the same DSLR and it is half the size. I just love it. My polaroid camera is everything. It gives me such 90’s vibes. It captures the moment  and prints it out instantly. I use it to take pictures I really want to keep and have instantly. This means I have hundreds of polaroid’s of my squishy bear. It is just so cute. I will always love to take pictures. One day I will look back and see all the memories of my life.
