its kind of like a homecoming


Oh boy. Ready to catch up? I sure am.
Here's what's been happening. My computer decided to give out suddenly, leaving me with a completely unplanned-eleven-day blogging break. Never would I have though that I would miss it so much. Photos remained inside my camera, daily begging to get out and be displayed. No joke, I would wake up in the mornings with blog posts all thought out in my head. I even wrote a few out on paper. Needless to say, I've been blog deprived.
On the bright side of all this, not having my blog for over a week has given me time to think things through. My conclusions?

-I need to write more. Not just the pretty synopsis to go with the photos. I want to go deeper, something I've been wanting all along. Sadly, I have the vocabulary range of a five year old and am not usually good at getting my thoughts into words, so bear with me.
-Overall, I need to post more regularly. It's not that I don't want to do this, but sometimes life is a little busy and I simply don't have time. Hopefully I'll find time to blog three times or more in a week.
-When it comes to my photos, I want to try harder. Uniqueness can be found in anything, that's what I want to capture. Experiment with different angles and views, search hard for the beauty in the little things.

With all that said, who's ready for some photo overkill?

Let me start out by showing you my new camera strap I won from Elyssa's giveaway! It's super comfortable. Plus, its cute.

I went for a walk after one of the almost-April showers had fallen. These drops caught in a spider's web amaze me beyond words.
