Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD Week 24 - Important Men in My Life

This is the most important man in my life. He cares for me like no one else, he provides for me and our family better than anyone could ever imagine, he loves our family more than anything, he does whatever it takes to make sure we are safe, and he puts our family's wants and needs ahead of everything [well, most everything...I still don't have that $1800 lens I want :-)].

He does all the things I can't stand doing, without complaining...like taking care of the disgusting mouse traps in the winter, he eats my crazy recipe creations without muttering a negative word, takes the kids to movies without me as he knows I can't sit still that long, and has patience when I lose mine.

We've been together since we were sophomores in college - 19 years ago! He has looked out for me, helped me in so many ways, been my rock, my soul mate, and my best friend. He has never stopped loving me through all these years. Even now in th midst of my pregnancy highs and woes, he takes extra care to be sensitive to me. He sees a lovely woman carrying his precious child, he sees the good in me I don't see, he sees the beauty in me I am blind to, he sees the love I have even when I may not fully show it. He is everything that I am not.

Once in a while I wish I could see myself through his eyes.
