My Nikon D3000 - YAY!

I’ll have to admit I was a little stumped with this week’s challenge.  Indulge.  What does that mean to me?  Is it chocolate cream pie and cafe mocha, 4 slices of pizza and a root beer float, mint chocolate chip ice cream and then more mint chocolate chip ice cream? No that’s not indulgence.  That’s a normal day.  So I did what I tell my first grader’s to do.  I looked it up in the dictionary.  Here’s the definition I’m going with:  verb: to yield to a wish or desire: allow oneself to follow one’s will.

Man, Oh Man, OH MAN!  Thank you, Word Press!

This girl went out and got herself a camera!  Talk about indulging!  Not having two nickels to rub together, with bills haunting me from all angles, staring down two mortgages, and retirement ( and fixed income) just around the corner, my husband and I walked into a camera shop and said, “We’ll take that one.”  Like it was a puppy at the pound.

I’ve been wanting a real honest-to-goodness camera for 35 years!  Now, I went and did it.  I’ve been clicking on blog posts left and right and each one is better than the last.  Writing, photography, jewelry.  You name it. I see people following their dreams and doing things I only talk about doing, and now it’s time for me to indulge.

Thanks to all that have inspired me.  I’m off to point and shoot!
