Day 3

The last of the Christmas decorations are all tucked away until the end of.. this year! I'm always sad to see it go. I am probably the last in our neighborhood to take everything down, but it just makes me happy, and I love the ambiance! All I'm lacking is a fireplace, but apparently people from Chicago didn't believe in those fine things so many years ago!

I'm loving the flowers my husband bought for me. He must have walked in yesterday with 6 packages of different bouquets. I absolutely love the muted roses, the bright gerbera daisies, the funky orange and purple colored daisies, the pink roses and others. I put these beside my bed because I love the smell, and a simple green and white/cream decor. 

Day 3
Indoor shots are hardest for me to get right. Again, I needed the practice. I hate the glare that the flash brings as it just washes away all the detail.
My settings were: 
ISO - 200, Aperture f/1.8, Shutter speed 1/13, 50 mm lens, no flash, tungsten
