It's my party and I'll cry if I want to....

I love birthdays, in so much as to say I love having them, love the suspense and the mystery...but I dislike parties.
That's fine though, I'm not having a party this year and haven't had one for many years now.  Its a rarity I have to say.  
Today IS my birthday though and I've been 'Appled' up even more than I was before with a cracking gift from my gorgeous - I've moved into the realm of the iPad. I love it.  I knew I'd love it. And now I can't stop loving it.  Today I spent all morning setting it up and playing with it, only to be late to see actual people :)

My family made a special trip down to see me.  A beautiful surprise was that I didn't realise everyone was coming, how special do you think I felt?  I just feel like the luckiest person in the world right now....I have so many people who love me, treat me well and wishing me the best.  You really can't expect much more from life than that.  And really, everything else is insignificant isn't it? This is what really matters, this is what really counts.

The fun continued when I got taken out to dinner, a beautiful little spot we'd only been to once before and it didn't disappoint.  Now, sitting back with a chance to relax, be with my 'family' and play with all my little gadgets.

Oh, and last week, after much debate, I bought myself a new Canon 60D, and can I say WOW! Haven't had a lot of time to play with it but today I did.  The sun was shining, life was good and so were the people surrounding me.  I didn't get a lot of time to play, but some of the results coupled with my dad's macro that I'm trialling at the moment made me feel good when I looked at them and good about me.  Enjoy with many more pictures to come in the future with my rockin' new camera! Now all I need is a good back so I can carry around more than just the body and one lens.

Images tweaked with Coffeshop Sunny Pop and Coffeeshop Coffee with Cream, then sharpened and resized with Paint the Moon's Frame/sharpen and Paint the Moon's Vintage Attic frames (I think that name is slightly wrong).  The frames are great, they're just my thing and I'm LOVING them at the moment.  Hopefully the next few days I'll get to play with images, editing and my new iPad! Bring it on :)
