One moment in time

The title is not because I’m a fan of Whitney (I’m so not), but because my very talented friend Mary Beth took our portraits this past weekend. It’s been three years since we’ve put on our Saturday best and had MB capture our family on film.

Err, in pixels.

Here’s one I can share in this space.

My family, my city.


Mary Beth Graff is an internationally renowned photographer (people fly her to weddings, yo!) who can be reached via her website. Some of my ColoBlogger friends have hired her and now would entrust their family moments to no one else.

Perfect Moment Monday: Fit

Roger and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this week.

We’ve covered a lot of ground in the 15 years since this photo was taken. On that pristine day, when our history together was clear as my dress, who could have known the the joys and heartaches, the moves and the stability, the births and deaths, the trials and triumphs — all the richness that awaited us as our story unfolds?

As if that isn’t perfect enough…


(Well, it buttons, anyway.)


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Show & Tell: Wedding invitation

This past week, Roger and I marked the 15th anniversary of our engagement (click all images to magnify).

As longtime readers may guess, we are not the traditional type that would have a traditional wedding. Or traditional wedding invitations.

And before we had children, we were big film aficionados.

These were the RSVP cards.

And, as if out of a time capsule, our closing arguments in why invitees should attend our wedding.

See what my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.
