{my favorite things}

so i thought on this cloudy friday i would write a little bit about the things i love. i've seen people do a top ten list of things to check out and i'm hooked - so today - i am sharing my list of favorite things...

1. for those of you who know me - i am a checklist fanatic. seriously. if there is a list to be made - trust me - i've already started checking it off... its the only way i know how to function! the magazine REAL SIMPLE has a great checklist resource on thier website - you can find it at http://search.realsimple.com/results.html?No=0&archive=Checklists&N=36 or just search thier site for checklists. it keeps my life organized and ready for the next step!
2. i have a love affair with vintage cameras...well with vintage anything. our home is filled with vintage art and furniture picked up all over the place from here to there. our mantel is filled with old books and my little camera collection...those jokers are expensive, so we only have few...but we're working on it...


3. i desperately wait every month for the latest issue of domino magazine. it is filled with great tips and ways to decorate on a budget. i just can't stand waiting for the next one to be in my little mailbox!

4. daryl likes to tell everyone that i am his CFO. i wouldn't be able to handle all the bills and keeping up with our spending if i hadn't found a free resource called http://www.mint.com/. this is a fantastic way to keep all your spending and even investments all in one place. if you haven't tried it out - please please do! :) 5. so as some know... i am a blogstalker. seriously. its a problem. i love love love to read other photographers blogs. i am constantly checking to see if people have posted new work or if they have written about thier little families. i'm just sick with loving my followed blogs! there are a few photographers who i am just crazy about thier work and the personality they show through it! i'm just going to share one so that you're not overwhelmed with the 30 or so blogs that i follow! seriously - i told you it was a problem.

betsy king photography - (formerly betsy and john photography).

although i have never met her or commented on her blog, i just love this girl. i love reading about her life - i know it sounds creepy but i do. she has the sweetest personality and it really shows in her work. reading her blog has really showed me to remember the little things in life - health, family, and happiness - and be satisfied with all thats around you. thats pretty deep for a photography blog - but really. i just hope she knows how amazing she is. this is an image i swiped off her blog of her little boy...hope she doesn't mind! isn't he adorable?

check out more over her work @ http://betsyandjohn.net/blog/

6. now. on to something else. i love photo booths. here are a few recent photobooth shots from our vacation to the mountains a while back - i just scanned them in to show ya the excitement! why one is blue and one is black we will never know - but really what do you expect from a curbside photobooth in helen georgia? really. i happen to think they are fantastic. eventually i would like to offer a photobooth option for weddings - wouldn't that be great?
another photography blog i follow is http://www.theimageisfound.com/. they have a great format for what they call the "crazybooth". hopefully one day once we get things off the ground with {h+d} we will be able to have something like that. also if you just wanna see some amazing images - check them out!

7. i love my klean kanteen. daryl swears that it was an impulse buy but i just love it. its so cute. and enviromentally helpful and its not a plastic bottle that will end up in a landfill somewhere! its beautiful. :) get yours today - they even have sippy tops for kids! how cute!? www.kleankanteen.com.
8. wheel of fortune. need i say more. just the sound on the wheel spinning! ahh! :)


9. all things handmade. buying things that someone made by hand is so personal to me. i just care about it! also - for purchasing handmade - www.etsy.com is a fantastic resource for gift ideas and for gifting yourself! :)

10. and last but certainly not least. i love being at home, wasting time, cooking dinner, and taking walks with my amazing husband. we've almost been married a year - isn't that crazy!? well - i hope he knows how great he is. (okay - now that you are gagging with all this love - i'll stop!)

so there you are. my top ten list for today. i could go on and on forever with the things that are special to me and the things i love. but i'll share again at another time the second set of favorites. thanks for reading...

worried about $$$$.
reading the bible.
creating a picture wall.
loving my pup.
wondering how to stay on a schedule.
craving simplicity.

thankful for forgiveness.
praying for less anxiety.
watching less tv.
