Day 39 joy of love 08: Gift from the heart

Today's theme is gift from the heart.  The first thing that popped into my mind was my engagement ring.  Long story short, Brian surprised me by proposing in front of his family.  He picked out a beautiful ring on his own and even thought enough to have his mother take pictures.  I still love them today even though he could have warned me so I looked a little  This is a close up of my two faves and a pull back of the frame that I have on our bedroom wall.  This was long before I knew about gallery wraps :)   

Day 38 Joy of love 07: Generations

Today's theme was generations.  I couldn't quite accomplish that today so I pulled a photo from last year.  This is from my beautiful great grandma's 100th birthday party last March.  She'll be 101 in a month!  I love the theme for today because it stresses the importance of capturing photos of your family and those photos capture memories forever :)  When my great grandma is long gone we'll still have the photos of our time with her.  This would be three of the five generations.  My mom and grandma aren't in this photo, but they are still around.  This is my son's only great great grandma that is still alive.  It's nice that he is old enough to remember her.

Day 37 The joy of love 06: Who they love

Aside from me, who does Brian love?  His niece, McKenna!  This is a picture of Brian watching her dance video (while she danced along.)  Just before this he got to watch her play Just Dance Kids on Wii.  She definitely brings a smile to everyone's face!

Day 36 Joy of love 05: Love to Hate

Something I love to hate is James' train track.  It's seriously one of the best gifts he's ever received.  Getting it piece by piece for birthdays and Christmas gifts since he was little.  Hours have been spent rearranging track over and over again.  Even though it is always out and takes up half the family room floor when he has all of it out, it's been a wonderful way for him to be creative.  Maybe he'll be an architect someday :)

Day 35 The joy of love 04: What they wear

If you know us, you know that we are huge Minnesota Twins baseball fans, Brian especially.  I seriously can not even count the number of Twins apparel items we own between the three of us.  This, however, has to be one of Brian's favorites.  For his birthday last year I bought him a knock off Twins jersey.  Unfortunately, that jersey didn't arrive from China in time :)  I was forced to buy him an authentic Justin Morneau jersey.  Good thing I did because during our spring training trip to Florida last year we were lucky enough to see Justin Morneau when Brian was wearing the jersey.  He graciously signed it for us :)  We now have three signed jerseys:  Justin Morneau, Joe Mauer and Lew Ford.  We have been very lucky!  I'm not too proud to admit that I've stalked Torii Hunter and Joe Mauer for signatures on their jerseys at previous trips to spring training.  Those jerseys however we auctioned off at The Jeff Voll Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser.

Day 34 Joy of love 03: Then and now

I have been battling a back injury the past couple of weeks (I am sadly out of commission) so I decided to post this oldie, but a goodie which fits perfectly with today's theme. This is James holding his baby book on his 13th birthday. I can't believe how he's grown. Even more now that he's 14 :)

Day 32 Joy of love 01: What they do

During the month of February I am participating in a class sponsored by Willette {Classic Children's Portraiture} called the Joy of Love. For 28 days we will be documenting those we love :) Today's post is called "What they do." I had good intentions of posting a photo of my son playing ball with our dog, Spotty, but I had to laugh out loud when I saw this photo of him sticking his tongue out at me. Yes, he's a stinker, but I love him!

About This Blog

I have always had a love for photography so after years of just enjoying other people's photos I figured that I should focus more on my own :) This is my second year of doing a 365 day photo blog. I learned so much my first year and I am excited to see what this year brings!
