Photo Friday – Recap of NY

I’m finally back home to the sunny skies and warm weather of Arizona!

My New York trip/mini vacation was fun and adventurous. My younger sisters enjoyed themselves, but they were definitely worn out by day 2 of walking around NYC haha. Since it was my second time around, I knew what to expect and I wasn’t  suffering as much as they were. Poor things. But, they survived and in the end were glad they got to see and experience “The Big Apple.”

I won’t flood you with the hundreds of photos I took while we went from Albany, to New Jersey, to NYC. Instead, I’ll leave you with a few of my favorites. These were all taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5, because I forgot the battery charger to my Nikon šŸ˜¦

Anyway, hope you enjoy and have a lovely weekend!

Photo Friday

Yesterday was such a long & busy day that I didn’t even have time to “make time” to post.Ā  But if you’re wondering how my first yoga class went…it was EXACTLY what I needed! From the moment I started, all the way until the last breath, it was complete relaxation.Ā  I’ve already signed up for another class next week.Ā  Let’s just say…I’m hooked! Haha.

Now, on to the title of this post.Ā  PHOTO FRIDAYS.Ā  Just another idea I came up with that I’d like to keep as a tradition for my blog. I’m going to put this disclaimer out there right now– I am NOT a photographer, but I would love to become aĀ  photographer someday.Ā  I have always enjoyed taking pictures, mostly of mother nature and the beauty she brings to life.Ā  My Mr. (husband) bought me a pretty decent camera years ago and that’s when I started to take more interest in capturing moments of special events & the people in my life. I’ve decided to share a photo or two of my favorite pictures that I have taken over the years.Ā  There will be some photos that I have taken with my camera phone (iPhone & Samsung) and other photos will be from my Sony camera.Ā  My Mr. just bought me a Nikon D3300 that I am beyond thrilled about and can’t wait to start playing with! But for now, and until I can figure out my new camera, I hope you enjoy some of my old photos on the very first…PHOTO FRIDAY!

If you’re an aspiring photographer like me, or an actual photographer, I’d love to hear from you and see some of your work.

This is the same beach looking out into the warm, crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean.Ā  Don’t you just want to jump right in?! Absolutely breathtaking!!
