a Love Letter to my Camera + Canon Rebel T3i Giveaway!

Dear Camera,

I love you like a fat kid loves cake...candy, or however that saying goes. Yes I know you are an inanimate object, and yes I know you cannot talk...BUT...the pictures that you have captured for me, are incredible.

Like the one of our plants and herbs as just tiny little things.

Or our picnic at Eckie's Pond.

Or Lesley's Bachelorette weekend.

Or the day we got Piper and every little growth spurt she has had.

Or the countless meals for my recipe posts...you have captured so many memories.

So don't let haters get you down my friend, you are so much more than just a camera to me. You are a tool to slow down time, to grasp a sunset, and tuck it in my pocket forever, a device to slice out a day in time to be frozen in my mind forever...you do that for me.

Yes, this is a silly letter...but I really do love you Canon Rebel T3i, never change!



Okay for real folks, this camera was a game changer for me. Ben and I both had little digital cameras, and they do not even begin to hold a candle to our Canon. For me as a blogger this camera has been a must have...I am not lying when I say I use it every single day. For posts, for styling photos, for capturing moments...It goes with me everywhere. So when Jana emailed me about this giveaway I knew I had to be a part!
