After confessing that I've had my DSLR for 10 months, and still don't know how to use it, I got tons of awesome feedback. I've taken all of it to heart, and I've ordered a book, read great tutorials, and I took my camera off Automatic.
So on Friday afternoon I had a mini photo shoot with my dog.
It might not be the best picture, but it with settings I set!!! I impressed myself.
That's my girl, we're hangin' out.
And then I realized this is what I love most about summer.
I love having no plans on a Friday, and being totally okay with it.
I love lazy evenings outside, impromptu dinner BBQs, random dates, going to the movies, enjoying coffee outside, and easy going nature of the season.
What else do I love about summer?
Maxi dresses, target sandals, and cut offs.
I love weekends at the lake, time at the mountains, and other adventures.
I love sunglasses, the state fair, and tan lines.
And for no other reason, I love summer because it brings out the happy and smiles in everyone.
P.S. I also love this simple dress.
Imagine it with a jean jacket, wedges, chuck taylors, scarf, or statement necklace.
It'd be fabulous with any of 'em.
