One Picture

The challenge is done.  Today is the last one.  And it's a toughie.  I've actually been thinking about this well in advance.

One picture (of yourself)
I have a lot of photos of myself from high school and college with friends.  And then you get married and it's a 14-hours of constant photography.  But then, babies come, and I end up being the person behind the lens.  I don't mind that.  I don't consider myself to be terribly photogenic, so behind the lens is a much better place for me, rather than in front of it.

But after consideration, I've chosen a photo from those 14-hours on June 9, 2007.  In this photo, our DJ is reading our "Love Story."  Both Nate and I answered questions for him, didn't compare notes, so when he was reading it, it was the first time anyone in that room had heard it.

This is my giddy, genuine smile.  I was so unbelievably happy that day.  You dream of that moment and when it's there, you can hardly believe it's not a dream.

I want to tell this skinny, young couple that today will be one of the greats.  There will be other wonderful moments, and some super crappy ones.  But I would remind them always to come back to this one.

When I was little, my dad would tell me that if I ever got lost, go back to the last place I could remember all of us being together.  I would tell this couple that if you ever got lost, go back here.  It's certainly not the last place we were together, but it's a good place to start.
