You might have noticed recently that a) I'm actually posting every day and b) that the photos on the blog maybe look a bit different?
I bought what I'll lovingly call my "starter camera" (a Canon 1000D) when I was traipsing through Australia a few years ago. I was so excited when I bought it that it didn't even occur to me that I'd outgrow it quickly. I was on a backpacker budget anyway, so splashing out wasn't really an option. It was my first DSLR (being purchased only because I got sand in my point and shoot while sandboarding north of Sydney) and I was over the MOON. My camera has served me so well since 2011 that I felt really guilty about upgrading, but it was definitely time. Both for work and play, I needed something a bit more powerful and that I would grow into instead of out of.

I couldn't bring myself to sell my 1000D, so I dusted it off and gave it to my sister; she's working on her food photography and travels more than I do, so I know that it's going to be in good hands!
Anyway, here's a bit of home life, since I spend most of my time inside during the week and I've exhausted my stash of staycation photos!
I have to thank Charisma for being so encouraging when I was deciding which camera to buy (and fielding about 1,000 texts about it while I was in the shop)! You're the best, babe!
Happy July! There will be new calendars up on Ready to Blog by the end of the day!
And, Happy Tuesday!
