Jenn at Juggling Life shared an idea, along with an invite to play along: blogging about the photos on the walls of your home. Many of you know what my dining room looks like...no, no, I mean the photos on the wall, not the mess. I've posted photos, I've also photo blogged, but never have I posted a picture of a picture and talked about it...what a fun idea! And, like Jenn, with the amount of photos we have around our home, it should keep me busy for awhile!
I decided to start with a photo from our wedding, because without that event, we would not have the gallery of family and friends adorning our walls. I am truly blessed to be married to this man. He is beyond patient, kind, and is an amazing father to our daughter. What I love about this picture is that we are totally relaxed and happy. The ceremony had taken place, the reception was over, and we were hanging out in the (rather fancy) lounge at The Hotel Hershey. This was back in the day when you were still permitted to enjoy a good cigar in this lounge, so we kicked back with a bottle of wine and our Acid and our Maduro (if memory serves). We have both long since quit smoking, Mark still enjoys the occasional cigar, but at that time, it was our celebration together. The first bottle of wine ordered as husband and wife, the beginning of our honeymoon week, and the relaxation that comes after your guests have gone and you no longer have anyone to please and focus on but each other.
