The One Where I Pretend to Be a Photographer

Last month when we were at the beach, my Mom asked me if I would take a few pictures of she and my Dad.
Because I can't resist taking pictures of people I love, I agreed.
Meet my parents, Sandi and Lee.
I think they are laughing because in between shots they were doing this.
I love it that my parents are in love, and that they aren't afraid to show it.
In high school I did plenty of eye rolling over this.
The kissing in between shots continued, and I threw out something that children shouldn't say to their parents. Notice my Mom's instant "Mom" look and my Dad's giddy laugh.
The sun was disappearing on us, so we moved to the beach.
I learned on this trip that my Dad thinks that shots of people walking away are sad.
I personally love them.
But it totally makes sense, if you know my Dad. He hates to see anyone leave because the time that was spent together is now in the past.
Which is why he loves to see people coming his way. It means that the present is leading to an immediate future of togetherness. And that I get completely.

Here's to more togetherness: at the beach, in your marriage, and of course with us.
I love you both.
