So, I didn’t have the time to try “hard” enough and find “Symmetry” for the Dogwood 2019 52 Week 5 Challenge and I know that we are probably in Week 7 or 8, but hey, here are a few pictures that I captured on my Sony A7RII + Sony Zeiss 55mm F1.8 Sonnar T FE ZA. Have a great week! Oh, and I think I finally narrowed it down to the Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM Wide-angle Zoom Lens as my next lens which would enable me to do more video and landscape shots. Thoughts? I wanted the Batis 24 or even the new Sony Wide GM but, we’ll see. There’s only a “few” more lens that I really want apart from the Leica route.
I've never been this excited for a stroller ever before but as mentioned before on The Night Light, Baby Jogger's City Select is the best stroller a parent of two or more kids should buy. Now on sale at Albee Baby for $499.99 (you can also go through their Amazon store and help this site out), you end up saving over $169.95!!!
Even if you think or are contemplating that second child, this is the stroller to have and at this price, you can bet that I bought this bad boy!
Baby Jogger City Select with the second seat is the best choice based on its lightweight design, compatibility with over a dozen car seats and its ability to work for both same-age and multi-age children.
On a side note, I called up my local Nordstrom in Escondido and had the pleasure of speaking to Rosalina in Kids. She was very patient with me and price matched the stroller reaffirming, once again that Nordstrom is the epitome of awesome when it comes to customer service and satisfaction! Thanks again!
So, FYI, you can catch me rocking out at the local San Diego Zoo or Safari Park with confidence once this bad boy comes in!
Yay for Slice!

Two weeks ago I had purchased a pair of Corso Como 'Famenka' Flat Nude 6.5 M on Nordstrom.com as a gift to myself for my new job. Nordstrom was in the midst of their Half Yearly sale, so I got a pretty amazing deal on the flats and bought them for under $40!
About a week later, I received a notification on my phone from the Slice app (iOS / Android / Web) that alerted me of a $10 price drop in the shoes I had purchased. The Slice Team also sent me an email about my Nordstrom purchase and included a link to the item I purchased with the new adjusted price, my order number, as well as Nordstrom's customer service number so I could inquire about my refund. I used all the information I was given and talked to Jeff in customer service and I was quickly and kindly refunded the $10 on my credit card. I ended up getting a 50% discount on some very comfortable flats thanks to Slice!

Does Slice store my password to my email account?
Slice uses a secure protocol called OAuth (oauth.net) to allow for authorization to your Gmail, Yahoo! Mail or Outlook.com account. For these accounts, the authentication happens between you and Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com, and we never even see the password you enter for your email accounts. OAuth is used by many popular websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Netflix and of course, Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft.
For mail providers that do not support OAuth, like AOL, iCloud/MobileMe, Comcast and Cox, we will need to store your email passwords to be able to process your receipts. The passwords will be stored and encrypted in a separate, secure database.
