Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why
This photo has to be my absolute favorite picture of myself. It seems a bit vain to like a picture of your own face, but I honestly don't think I've ever seen myself looking cuter (AND MY HAIR HAS NEVER LOOKED THICKER) or happier. When I die, this is the picture I want displayed next to my casket.
Not this one:
Okay, back to the good photo.
This picture was taken by my beloved husband on our very third day of being husband and wife. It was snapped just after sunset on the balcony of our hotel room in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We were on our honeymoon and the wave of emotions sweeping over me that entire week could only be described as euphoria. From the ceremony to the reception to waking up together that first morning as an official married couple to venturing out of the country to spend time alone on a beautiful beach with my soul mate—it was all breathtaking and beautiful.
When Clayton and I get lost in reminiscing, as couples are wont to do, I always find myself repeating the same sentiments. I will never, ever in a billion lifetimes forget how I felt when I woke up on the morning after our wedding. I rolled over on the scratchy white sheets in the hotel room, looked at the sleeping man who I could now call my husband and was overcome with joy. Never in my life had I ever wanted anything more badly than to make a life with this man and now that the time was finally here, the moment was really real, I couldn't even comprehend it.
I hope you have a very happy Friday!
