Because I Can

"What are you going to do with these pictures," the photographer [Evette of Bella Photography] asked me.

"I don't know," I responded.  "I'm just going to have them."

Maybe I'll print a few.  Maybe not.  There was never really an end goal in sight.

The thought came to me last summer after I had worked really hard to lose some Dylan weight. 

I wonder if I can fit into my wedding dress?

And then the thought expanded.

Next year is my 10th anniversary.  Wouldn't it be fun to put my dress back and have the bridals I chose not to do back then taken now?

Well, guess what?  It was fun.  And now I have pretty pictures of me in my wedding dress, even if it was 10 years later.  What will I do with them? 

Blog them.

And then store them on my external hard drive.

And be glad I took the time to do something just because I can.

Might I just point out that these certainly don't look like 10th Anniversary pictures :D You look gorgeous (and not a day older!)

Yay! I'm so glad you did this for yourself, and totally impressed that you still fit in the dress! You look wonderful!

I had such a blast with you Andrea. I didn't know you back when you were first married, but I'm willing to bet that you were just as gorgeous then as you are now. I love the location you chose for your photo's. Congrats on ten years!
