This is the last week for our BLMGirlsWrite February Link-Up. I’ve had a great time collaborating with SheBeKnowin and I hope everyone has enjoyed this month with us. This week’s topic deals with our favorite pictures. I’ve shared my top four favorite photos below. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I won’t offer too many of my own below!
Me and My Husband After Our First Date
My husband and I dated 3 years before we got married and we have quite a few pics of us together. After our first fancy dinner, we took this picture. This picture shows how genuinely happy we were to be together and even the light is soft and romantic. We want to make it a point to have more pictures as our relationship continues but this will forever be one of my favorites.
Me and Mommy on my Wedding Day
This picture encapsulates the joy I felt on my wedding day. My mom and I had our faces beat and hair laid for the gawds but I’m just happy to have an image like this. Not only is it a great keepsake, it reminds me how much I look like my beautiful Mommy.
Me and PopPop
I don’t have many pictures with my grandfather but I really like this one. PopPop passed away 19 years ago in June but I still miss him. He’s the only other lefty in my immediate family so he taught me to tie my shoes. He was a bibliophile and got me hooked on reading at an early age. To this day, I keep a book on me wherever I go.
My First Furbaby: Bailey
Be still my heart! Hubbz and I are dog people so we couldn’t wait to bring home a furbaby. After doing tons of research, we found the perfect match. Her name is Bailey and she’s a Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix (aka Bochi/Boston Huahua). I’m so in love with her sweet face and disposition and this picture will remind me how little she was when we brought her home.
What is your favorite picture of all time? Do you remember who took it? Is it a recent photo or an older one? Why is this photo so significant to you?
