- My family. I can't live without my husband because not only is he an excellent husband and father, he's also a superior tech guy. My kids drive me crazy sometimes but I wouldn't trade them for the world. And we both have parents and siblings that live close by. They have helped us out in so many ways (babysitting!) over the years.
- My friends. Like most people, I have friends spread out across all the various stages of my life and they all mean the world to me. I honestly don't know what I would do if I didn't have so many wonderful people in my life. I know one thing for sure, my life would be very dull and a whole lot harder without them.
- Books. It was tough to choose which would come first between books and my camera since I am so attached to both but in the end I chose books because they have been a constant in my life since I was a kid. I really felt that Nancy Drew was my friend and that I lived on the prairie with the Ingalls. I have always said as long as I enjoy reading, I will never be bored and for the most part that's been true.
- My camera. Taking pictures unlocked a door for me. It allowed me to realize that yes, I do have a creative side.
- My computer. With a digital camera, a computer becomes more than a computer, it becomes your darkroom. A regular darkroom was never my thing (too messy) but my computer gives me the creative control that I was lacking when I was shooting film.
So over the weekend, I read this book called, Five Things I Can't Live Without. I don't think that I would recommend it to anyone because it was just okay, not very deep. But that's not why I'm bringing it up. I'm bringing it up because it made me think about what would be the 5 things that I couldn't live without.
