Love Thursday

It seems fitting that I jump back into the Love Thursday crowd on THE Love Thursday.

If it wasn't for self-portraits, there would be no pictures of me at all. And no pictures of Chowder and I. Whenever we go somewhere, I set up my camera and timer and force Chowder to play along with me so that our children will know that they were not hatched from eggs. They had parents who truly loved each other.

Of course none of the self-portraits of us as a couple ever come out to be some beautiful picturesque photo of the two of us smiling into the camera...a perfect balance. No. No. No. our self-portraits of us as a couple always come out like this.
An actual self-portrait. of us. as a couple.
I love them all. And want to make a wall of them in our bedroom.

Happy Love Thursday!

It is a great photo.

I am impressed that you are going back to study. That is great.
I just don't have the time or inclination... maybe when the kids leave home.

A sweet pic anyway! Happy Valentine's Day!

Mel said...

Cute! Still love your main pic though and the way you are looking at him. xxx

You are a lucky woman to love and be loved so well! I am terribly guilty of envy!

Soo that is how you can get photographic proof of your existence in your childrens life. I have been wondering how i was going to prove to my kids that i was actually around for the first 4 yrs of there lives since there are barely any pictures of me with the children.

I should also do this with dh. I don't think we have a picture of the 2 of us IN in since 2005.

My kids are out of luck because I can't stand having my picture taken. (probably hereditary since my mom hated it too.)

cute photo. I think it's better than the canned "smiling at the camera" shots anyday. This one has so much more character.

Praying for you with your classes and your "Sweetling"

Aww, I love that picture. Very sweet.

There are no pictures of me also. I need to use your idea and start taking some for my kids to have later.


Jenni said...

so what you're saying is...your mouth is open in every photo?


You guys are too cute.
