It seems like it has been a time for firsts recently. Today I went with Hannah to one of her friend’s wedding. It’s the first wedding the me and Hannah have gone to together. It was a really nice wedding and the couple looked extremely happy. We had a good time too and were able to get all dressed up(Hannah looked stunning). It was another good day.
P.S. Today was also Michelle’s birthday and I was unable to see her. So Happy Birthday and I hope you had a great day!
So I had to borrow this picture from Brandy, as I did not actually shoot any photos tonight. I needed a night off from everything. It has been a long week and another long week looms ahead. I was honestly so tired and worn out that I didn’t want to go anywhere. But Hannah encouraged me to go. So tonight I relaxed and enjoyed my time with Hannah, Brandy, Nick and a big group of great Chivers. We played some games, donated to a good cause, talked with some fun people and had a lot of fun ourselves. It was a good night and I needed it. So thank you Brandy for the lovely photo and for inviting me to what is always a good time and thank you Hannah for encouraging me to go when I wanted to be a bum and not go out.
We’ve been together almost seven months now. It’s been an incredible seven months. And I at least know I have learned a lot. At the beginning we never argued or fought. Now we do occasionally. It’s normal though. We argue and we work things out. We try to be better. It may take a few times, but we try. We try to be the best that we can be for each other. Today was a day that was good and bad. Lots of arguing and bad feelings, but we worked it out. We always do.
Today was the last day of vacation and the last day for me to catch the sunrise. I had missed it every other morning, so I had to get it this morning. I woke up early and headed down with Hannah, Hillary and Josh. Hillary and Josh wanted me to get photos of them together before we left so it worked out well. I got a beautiful sunrise and got to take photos of them. And then they asked for the stereotypical, holding hands on the beach, photo. So I snapped it quickly and moved on. And then I looked at it and found it had turned out to be a beautiful combination.
Today I got to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Hannah. We went to dinner where we had our first date and then we went to the symphony. It was a great night and there’s no one else in the world I would have rather spent it with. As we sat in the symphony listening to a collection of romantic love songs, I started to think about love. It’s kind of a relevant topic today. Listening to those beautiful songs made me think about the things that love makes us do. It has inspired so much art, music, literature, beauty, selflessness, bravery, and sacrifice. It makes people paint masterpieces and write operas. It makes people do insane things. And it doesn’t always show up in these big ways. It shows in tiny little things. All the everyday sacrifices and little acts of kindness that one will do for someone they love. Like making them breakfast, or running an errand for them or making them soup and giving them a kiss when they’re sick. And all the tiny little gestures. Like holding hands, or the way you look at them, or holding them in your arms or kissing them. I’ve thought a lot about love and what it is. And I guess I think you love someone when you know you would do anything for them. And that means the big things and the little things. And for most of us, the big things don’t come up, or they don’t come up very often. But the little things. Those happen every day. And every day you do the little things for them because you love them.
Driving down a road I’ve traveled daily, multiple times, down a road that I’ve ran, one I’m familiar with for two years now, I see the above. It caught my eye. The two white trees standing out. Beautifully. I’ve never … Continue reading →
