  2. That lens is awesome! I got the same one in January and haven't used any of my others since. It's great for low light and I rarely have to even use a flash.

  8. Thanks for hosting. This is one of my very favorite link parties. And I am happy to say I think I viewed almost everyone's link from last week. I might not have commented on all of them, but I did stop by. We'll see if I can do it this week too.

    LOVE the matte lotion! I'm an Avon rep, too. That's my go-to daily moisturizer.

    And we have the same marker board calendar. 🙂

    AND I'm a new follower, so, hi! 🙂

  18. I love your blog and have recently started following it 🙂 I too love the white board blog idea and would love to be able to meet up with everyone but you're a little too far from PA for me to make it 🙁

    Have a great Friday!
