Some Things Never Change

My husband and I have been planning something special to celebrate our ten year anniversary.  We are dreaming of places to visit.  We have been looking at flights and gasping in disbelief at the cost of traveling these days.  Our anniversary isn't until January, but apparently we should have been saving for the past ten years for this trip.  I was thinking about how much has changed in ten years.  Our first big adventure together was in Europe when he met my family for the first time.  It is kind of hard to top Europe.  As I was going through the grainy pictures of the past, I found it comical how many were in the stacks of me taking pictures of things I loved.  There I was often with my old, trusty camera and film.  I loved finding roadside cafes, rows of lovely flowers, and strange things to eat.  In all our years together, that has never changed.  I have old journals filled with pictures and stories.   Blogging was non-existent then for me.  I think it is funny how little I have changed in those ways.  I have taken my loves and went digital.  I have really always been B Charmer...just back then, I was the only reader.  Now, I get to share my loves with all of you. 

I love this first picture because I was down on the ground photographing something tiny and I heard my name.  I popped up with crazy hair, and thus this moment became permanently etched in time.  The look on my face says it all.  I was in a world of my own finding pretty things. 

For all the other pictures, I would prop up my trusty old tripod and set the timer.  Maybe if I were lucky, I would get a stranger to capture the moment for me.. if family were not along.  Oh, the memories. Perhaps one of the sweetest lies in an old shoe box in our home.  While I was waiting on my love to land in Spain, I traveled to France for several days.  Each little town I visited, I purchased a postcard and wrote to him.  He kept every one.  They are comical and lovely to read today.  I was smitten, for sure.

So, ten years deserves something special.  I am not sure what that will be, but I know I will have my camera at the ready.  For we all know... some things never change.

  1. Will it really be 10 years? Time has flown. My life has been fuller because of the time that you and Kevin were in it.
