Marilyn from ALotOfLoves posted a really neat blog today.
The idea was to find the oldest folder of pictures on your computer, and pick the 10th photo in the folder, post it, and write about it. What a cool idea! I just had to participate.
So here you have it.
This is the oldest picture on my computer, period. My photos aren’t organized, and it took me forever to find one that wasn’t recent.
This is possibly one of my favorite pictures of all time. I love the colors, I love the smiles. Such a happy new love.
This is from when Brock and I first started dating, together maybe two or three weeks. We went to a concert at a winery up North, and decided to take a walk around the grounds. As you can tell, I was a little thicker back then (which everyone says looks good on me.) There was some blond in my hair, and I miss those glasses more than I could ever admit. They were the worlds cutest frames. It was August, and it was hot.
I remember this day because we were walking together, very much in love, ignoring the rest of the world, when we came upon a pretty spot on a bridge. We were lost in each other’s eyes, and I wanted a picture of us together. This might actually be the very FIRST picture of us together. Brock held the camera and took a perfect shot. About 10 seconds later, another couple came by and asked us if we wanted them to take a picture of us. We said sure, and posed for the shot. It turned out horrible. Same situation, same feelings, same everything – terrible photo. We returned the favor and took a picture of them together, then parted ways.
I love looking back at our old pictures. I love remembering the way we felt when our love was fresh and clean and new. I love doing things to get that feeling back again.
We still feel that happy. We still glow the same way. We are very, very lucky.
