Last night we had the good fortune of being invited to a wonderful, private Christmas party.
It's been far to long since my husband and I dressed up to go anywhere, and though I know he wasn't particularly thrilled, he went with me and we had a good time. There was plenty of good, catered food, open bar with bartenders, and about 150 people. All in one beautiful, old house!
Cocktail chic was the attire of the night. I tried my best. The image is rather poor as it was taken with my iphone in low light.
On to my new iMac
Yes, I'm still struggling with it, but every day I seem to learn a little bit more.
Today I learned that when I reformatted my hard drive I lost all the elements, backgrounds, etc, I'd used for making headers, along with some other downloads I had. Yeah, that was not my finest moment. Since the closest Apple store is an hour away I may have to go to the local computer store and have someone help me sort all my files and put things in order. Half the time I can't find what I'm looking for and it's making me crazy.
The flowers were from my trip to Rhode Island in late May. Ranunculus aren't that common in my area so it was so nice to photograph them. Their soft and delicate petals along with variegated shades make them wonderful to work with. On the iMac I feel like I'm finally seeing the color of my images for the first time. And sometimes it's not pretty. But at least I can fix it.
I hope you had a wonderful week-end! Did you do anything special? Decorate? Shop? Lunch with a friend? Take some time for yourself?
We put our tree up today. Although we searched everywhere for a white tree like this, it was not to be, so for the first time in the 20 years my husband and I have been married we bought a real tree! A Concolor fir. My husband even cut it down. Oh, it's so pretty, with long light colored needles and the smell of citrus, it's not like any Christmas tree I had while growing up. Both the girls were very happy to finally have a REAL tree!
Thank you for visiting my little blog. Hopefully my header will be back in order soon! Have a good Monday!
