    { Live and Learn }

    ~Blog Bliss~

    Well I battled blogger today and made a few (slight) changes to my blog template. Changed the font to my all time fave (I use it in my layouts more than any other). I put a bit of colour in my side panel. Both of those were easy enough. Then I wanted to indent my text a little in the side bar, after quite a while I figured that out too, it all moved across a bit, except the profile text, so I think I spent a good 90 minutes on that! LOL Well, I guess it's a sense of accomplishment, I hate things like that beating me, so I'm glad I persisted!

    ~Photo Shoot~

    Well I must say I was very chuffed with how the pics of Shez's family turned out on Wednesday so I thought I'd have a go with my girls, using the white backdrop.

    They didn't turn out as good as Shez's, a bit soft for some reason, even though I used the same lens. I only took about 25 shots and most were in raw because I couldn't get the WB looking right. Raw is amazing, but I hate the post processing part. That being said, I was glad that I took them in raw and might have to overcome my post processing reluctance!

    I just used natural light today, mainly because I couldn't be bothered setting up the lights, plus the light was perfect, very overcast, and I used the rumpus room, which has three large windows on the East, North and West side, so I couldn't be luckier!

    Now off the technical side, look at my girls, I love that they are so opposite, not just in looks. Although they are actually quite similar their colouring makes it hard for some people to see.

    I am sooo loving being at home with them at the moment, I miss it more than I realised. They are both complete angels too, both helping around the house and just being, well, great.

    Yesterday morning Quinn was having a shower with me and Bronte came in to say that she had made Quinn's bed and folded all her clothes that were on the floor!!!!! Will wonders never cease??? Anyway, during my less lucid moments, I dream that things will last like this forever, but I know it won't, but I am lapping it up as much as I can LOL.

    Just had a thought, it might be my relaxed and happy state that is helping with that.... food for thought.....

    Have a GREAT night all......

    Oh and Mr Supreme Being, I hope you are feeling OK and not in too much pain. And to my other friend.... more hugs.....

    oh Lee, you must be so happy with them, LOVE the bottom one, your girls are sooo precious and loving to each other, don't ask yourself if it will always stay the same, because it very well could, it's just in their nature that sort of kindness they show to each other:)
    You are truly blessed and it's nice to see a Mum happy about staying home in the school hols with their children, nothing worse is some Mums that say they can't wait for school to resume.
    I can't wait for you to make something with those beautiful new photos. You must be so proud of your family x

    I have to say, your girls do look quite different, but both are absolutely GORGEOUS! And how amazing are these photos? I know it's always a pain setting up for a photo shoot, but isn't it just so worth it?!

    So nice to hear how much you are adoring your girls and life in general - here's to loads more of it in years to come :)

    Wow! I agree with one of the commenters -- what's with the 'wanna be' part??? I think you're already there!!

    Your girls are so pretty and so photogenic. What's the trick... mine are always making grumpy faces!
