Remember I love you...

Tuesday January 13~
I resolve to take more self-portraits with people I love
..............................................................................



I love this picture of my dad and me. It is one of my all time favorite Christmas gifts. This picture combined with this weeks SPT challenge got me thinking about how priceless pictures taken with the ones we love become when the ones we love are no longer with us. So I decided to take this opportunity to snap an individual picture with all those I love so that when I'm 98 and getting ready to kick it out of here I can give these photos as special Christmas gifts to each one of my special gifts.




I hope they appreciate it because posting all of these pictures of my mug is rather unsettling. Unsettling indeed.

Especially this late night beauty. Yikes. But I had to include it because what would a post about taking pictures with the ones I love be without the one I love the mostest in the whole wide world...

Man I love this guy!
.

And I Love SPT too.
Without this challenge I would never have taken these pictures.
Thank you Lelly for helping me to become a documented part of my family's history.

i dig how you've captured everyones essence and personality.... so cute. i particularly like the late night shot of you two, brings back memories of keeping you guys up way past bedtime before we (mike and I) had kids. oh how we didn't get it! we only knew it was time to leave when Rick started snoring after his eyes had been closed for half an hour.. but man you can stay up forever!!

The picture of you and your Dad is gorgeous, what a wonderful treasure to have.

I loved all of the pictures of you with your kiddos and years from now, each of them will think of these pictures as treasures too.

Like you, I'm so thankful for SPT's!

So sweet! I love the photo of you and your Dad...that is awesome! Your kids are gorgeous...as are you, so you should not be unsettled with your sps! Great post!

I absolutely LOVE that you did this! I think I admire you more for doing it to. I HATE taking pictures of myself. But you know what...you are a better mom and wife for doing it. Look how you cherish the one of your dad. Your kids will cherish more than anything you took the time to take one with them!
I loved at Turks funeral all the pictures....at that time I thought omg I need to take more family pictures. Thanks for being so inspiring! Maybe I will even do it....maybe....

It is great to hear that others enjoy SPT as much as I do. Lots of effort, self awareness with an outstanding outcome.
