my new baby came today

okay, that sounds bizarre. . . but. . . my new camera lens came in this afternoon!

it is tiny but a delight. i am so excited to play around with it more this summer in EUROPE. k & i still have an overwhelmingly long list of things to get to this week.

i love these questions like - "should we go from milan to venice or milan to florence first?" how incredible!

p.s. do not watch the talented mr. ripley. k & i did & now we regret it. beautiful people & beautiful itlay do not always guarantee a good film. summer movie time with k is fantastic, but we have wasted our precious time on dozens of truly miserable movies. when in rome & shutter island are still waiting to be viewed sometime before we jet off.

also it is certain: grace will not be able to eat while abroad this summer. & ryanair is totally sketchy, but we're going anyway. they try to convince you to buy air insurance a thousand times before purchasing tickets!

in other news, these articles & pictures will rock your world, esp. yours sarah edwards.


  1. That's so exciting that you're going to Europe, Grace -- I'm sure you'll have an amazing time. I can't wait to see your photos!

    What kind of camera do you have? I just got a 35mm f/1.8 and am loving it. And I'm sure the f/1.4 is even better. I was totally amazed at how much clearer/better my photos were after switching lens . . . I don't think I was expecting that much of a difference!

    My brother traveled on RyanAir a lot . . . and he made it back home alive, so hopefully it's not too sketchy? :) Have a wonderful trip!

  2. Yay! Do you love the lens already?! I'm so excited for you!
