I really, really loved this photography topic: Take a photo of yourself and your loved one together. Like most moms, I am behind the camera 99.9% of the time. I take photos of my family and all of our activities and love every second of it, but that means that I am very rarely in any of the photos. When my kids look through their scrapbooks and photo albums twenty years from now I want them to see their mom documented, too. I know that I enjoy seeing photos of my mom when she was younger, and I'm sure my kids will as well. So the task of taking a photo of myself with Cory was just the prompt I needed to get one more photo of myself "in the books". Plus, I love that the photo shows Cory and I together - I think this photo shows our connection to one another rather well.

This evening we celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday at my sister and brother-in-law's home. I asked my sister-in-law, Megan, to take some photos of Cory and me and this is my favorite. What I love most about the photo is how comfortable Cory and I are with one another. We've been a couple for 17 years - yep 17! And I feel like I know this man as well as I know myself. We go together "like peas and carrots" and this picture shows that comfort well. I'm so thankful that my mother introduced us all those years ago, because I know I have the perfect man for me with whom to enjoy life. We definitely belong together.
