Default Truly blessed!

So my SO and I were pretty open this year for Christmas. He knows what I'm getting him (except for the little surprise gift.... he thinks he's only getting the one thing), and I knew what he was getting me. We knew what each other wanted, but both items were just too hard to keep a secret since both needed verification/sizing/etc. of some sorts. We were not going to pricy this year because we just purchased Storm... which was basically our main gift to each other.

Everything was set in stone, until this morning. He knew I was eyeballing this DSLR package that was on a huge sale. It was too much money for me right before the holidays and I had given up the idea of purchasing it.. it would have been selfish. The deal was ending soon at our local store anyways. I was a little bummed out about it though, I had wanted a DSLR for many many years. When we got up this morning, he told me to get ready and meet him at the store around lunch time. When we got there and went to the camera section.... he surprised me with the DSLR bundle and said I could have it early, since he knew I had a bunch of dog events coming up and our mini vacation next week.... he wanted me to be able to use the DSLR and not have to fiddle around with the point and shoot when it means the most.

I have a huge smile on my face even hours later. I love that man. He does everything he can to make sure I'm happy and taken care of... something as simple as a random visit at work to say hi... to the camera I've been wanting for years. I hear too many stories about couples in bad relationships, or a spouse not treating the other well. Too often these days, people are miserable with their partners. I'm reminded daily that I'm truly blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life!


What a surprise! I'll definitely be posting more pictures now!!


My dogs think I'm annoying now with the camera.... Just they wait until this thing is charged! lol!

Thanks everyone! I just got done watching some of the videos it came with.... lots of new ideas for when I'm working with the dogs! This camera is awesome! I'm really excited to do a bit more then practice in the house and backyard.

Yep, we were. We fostered for a few months, but she fit in so well and she showed the temperament of what I wanted for the next dog... just missing the male parts. We will deal with that though. Not a big deal. We made the decision on October 28th. Glad we did.

Ooh, I'm sure he'll love that! Eye candy at work! It's the thought that counts. Honestly, I would have been super excited with a rose and a nice hand written card.
