Memories: Take the Picture

I was the girl in high school who carried her camera with her pretty much everywhere (if the occasion allowed for a purse). Going to dinner after church with friends? *snap*  Having a spontaneous dance/sing-off to the tune of High School Musical? *SNAP SNAP SNAP* (there is also video evidence in my vault).  Did my friends make fun of me sometimes for taking so many pictures?  Sure, but I knew I'd be glad one day when we looked back on the good ole' days. 

Now that I'm married, I'm trying to be just as cognizant of opportunities to capture special details, like my favorite cozy corner of our first home.  I've found it's easy to forget the every day details that once made up the special moments we shared with our family and friends.  Maybe it's the way the sun shined in your favorite room at 4:00 PM, or in our case, a nest of sweet little birds chirping outside our bedroom window that woke us up on Saturday mornings for a few weeks.  Those are the kind of things I hope to capture with my trusty camera and journal in this first year of marriage and beyond.
