Hello everyone and thank you for coming to visit My Life in CNY. Hopefully I won’t bore you to tears and you will keep coming back. But if your interests are similar to mine – photography, food, wine, gardening, and reading – then you should be able to find something of interest here.
As you may have guessed, I live in Central New York, specifically Ithaca, NY. This area is also known as the Finger Lakes Region. It’s a beautiful area – words can’t do it justice. I am constantly awed. The area has much to offer, from lakes and waterfalls, to wineries, to excellent restaurants. It also has long and tedious winters – but you have to take the good with the bad I suppose.
I am in my thirties (the actual number varies depending on my mood) and I have been married almost four years with no children or pets. It’s a very quiet home! Last Christmas (2009) my husband came home with a Nikon D3000. I was not real enthusiastic – it had a lot of buttons and dials and I was completely happy with my tried and true point-and-shoot. I did not want to have to learn how to use this intimidating contraption!!
Well, learn I did to the point where my husband rarely gets to use the D3000 anymore. Prior to now, I have been doing all of my photo posting using Flickr and I don’t expect that to change. But lately I’ve been posting more and more comments with my pictures and I started to think about blogging.
And so that’s where we’re at. I don’t know where this will go – it’s sure to be an interesting experiment. I’m glad you’re coming along for the ride.
