It is only Day 4 of this project and I am already struggling because I can't think of anything to write about or post pictures of. It might not be so tough if Aaron had not permanently lost our digital camera, because I would love to show a picture of Clark's room, or our Christmas tree (that is not currently up yet but will be when Aaron gets around to getting up in the attic), or even a cute updated picture of Jake. There will be no new pictures until Aaron gets me a new camera, and not having photos seems to defeat the purpose of the December Photo Project, so I may not be able to see this thing through to the end. So in the meantime, I thought I'd post a few of my favorite photos that were taken by Daniel, my new brother-in-law, for my 24th birthday.
We like to call these our engagement plus four years photos. We only had about eight weeks to plan our wedding, which made finding time to take engagement pictures impossible. We never had a nice little announcement in the newspaper and I never got bridal portraits, and that kind of sucked. So for my 24th birthday, Aaron surprised me by hiring Daniel to drive all the way to Starkville to shoot us for the day. I had just spent two consecutive weeks directing summer camps for rising high school seniors, but somehow Daniel managed to make the bags under my eyes disappear and keep my complete look of exhaustion to a minimum.
He's so talented and we always have so much fun with him and his new bride. I can't wait for him to get some good photos of Clark.
P.S. He is also participating in the December Photo Project and puts all others to shame.
