Odds and Ends

^^My first ever pictures of the moon! And that little thing in the upper right hand corner of picture #2 is indeed, a blurry star. :)

The other day I got asked to do my first photo shoot! I'm planning on doing it in the spring (that is when the client wanted to do it) so I haven't talked about what exactly or where the couple wants the shoot, but I am just super excited to have been asked! I don't know if it will be at all possible, but I have heard lots and lots of good things about the 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 lens, and I would really like to be able to get that before the shoot. But it's up to God. :)

Something that was a really wonderful blessing to me today has to do with my watch. (Oh please, you're saying as you roll your eyes. A sob story about a watch??) Okay, you can skip this if you were rolling your eyes. ;)
Last year for my eighteenth birthday my uncle gave me an expensive watch. It was beautiful and then in the summer, it stopped working. I thought that the battery had died, but I took it to a watch place and apparently, the battery was fine. It was just the watch that was broken. Thankfully there is a ten-year  warranty on the watch, so I sent it in a couple weeks ago. Today I received a letter. I expected them to give some odd excuse of why they couldn't repair the watch for free, blah blah blah, but no, that's not what they said. They did say that they could not repair the watch, but because they didn't have the parts. Because of the warranty, though, they were telling me that I could give them my top four choices of a watch up to an even higher price than my uncle bought the watch for.  Isn't God good?? I am so so happy that he had this happen for me, especially since I've been feeling down lately. :) Anyway, I just wanted to share that. :)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for the free pair of earrings from Along for the Ride! It ends on the 16th! Hurry hurry. :)
