Happy Mother's Day to me!
Normally Brian does the typical "I love you and you are an excellent Mother to my children" standard fare. Cards, candy, flowers, dinner out. And I love all that, I really do. But Brian hates doing this. Really. Truly. He's not a gift giver. He likes simple and easy, not something he has to actually make an effort for.
One day I was researching camera lenses. I follow a lot of photographer's blogs and pay attention to what they use. Yeah, they use $1,800 lenses on cameras so expensive that they could buy a small country with the money used to purchase it. Sorry, no way am I able to spend that kind of money.
So, when my friend Marcus asked if I had a "Nifty Fifty" I was intrigued. I googled it and was surprised to see a million good reviews. And the great news? Its only about $100. I quickly sent the link to my husband, not even suggesting it as a present. He came back and said, "Do you want this UV filter thingy to go with it?" YAY!!!
He said, "No card, no dinner, no flowers." I told him I loved him very much :)
I got my lens 3 days later and have been having fun playing with it!
