From This Moment On

    Newer Older

    Yesterday, in celebration of our 10th Wedding Anniversary (July 29th), we returned to our wedding reception location (In-Laws backyard in Novato, CA) to renew our vows and exchange new rings.

    We created a CD of music to play and even had a miniature version of our cake made for the celebration. It's hard to believe that 10 years have gone by already...they've been the best 10 years of my life!

    Max was gracious enough to be our photographer for the event and he captured a lot of great photos, including this one.

    From This Moment On, by Shania Twain, was our first dance song.

      On a side note: as you may have noticed, I haven't been posting any Project 365 photos. Sometime in May, it became too much for me and I had to quit. The last photos I posted were in late April, we'll see if I get around to posting the remaining ones.

      I want to thank everyone who supported and encouraged me during my 365 attempt. I learned so much about photography and my camera, it was a great experience. I really miss the project and wish I would have been able to make it work.

      Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary, and thanks for giving me some ideas for my 10 year anniversary which is not too far away.

      I know how you feel about your 365. I quit my 365 as well at the end of May because I just had too much going on. There will be other times to do and finish a 365. I enjoyed your 365 and still enjoy your website you made which shows the "project365" tag.

      Keep your great shots coming....

      about the 365 -- as long as you learned and improved while you were doing it, who cares about a number? you'll get back to it when you can.

      Lovely photo from Max. Love, love, love the rings. Shannon deserves that beautiful vintage looking ring, and love yours too. The brushed gold and the rounded sides. Looks great. Roger and I were so pleased to celebrate the thd 10th with you and Shannon a lot has happened in that ten years.

      and yes on what everyone else said about the 365.... as long as you got something positive out of it, it really doesn't matter when you stop.. and you could always start it up again :)

      Very cool... such a great story! And... wonderful for the assignment.. Congrats to you and yours!

      Thanks everyone; I appreciate all of the support and kind words.

      I thought I hadn't seen any photos lately. I enjoyed your shots as well and hope we both have the time to try it again ;)

      Thank you. I hand't considered that...I always try and "play by the rules" ;) I guess I can do a 365 in my own time though...

      A walk in the woods sounds nice too :D

      Well, an early congratulations on making it 10 years. Vegas sounds fun, but with 3 kids, including a 4mo old, we decided to stay close ;)

      Thanks Lynn. The family is doing well and we've had a really nice summer. Hard to believe our oldest is going into Kindergarten this year.
