Super 7 Shots Photo Challenge

When I saw this blog post on Melissa's blog, I knew I just HAD to do it for myself. And, she basically tagged anyone that wanted to do it - so it was up for grabs! :)

a photo that takes my breath away
one of my best friends is a photographer. when she was trying to get her portfolio together, she asked if nate and i would pose for her "couples" shoot. it was literally like 2 months after he and i met and got together. he was such a trooper to agree to do this with me for her. most guys would've flipped. ;) i love all of the pictures she captured of us, but this one was totally non-posed and i love the sunlight peeking through. it is one of my faves, for sure.

a photo that makes me laugh or smile
this one definitely makes me laugh. me and my little sister at a friend's birthday dinner a couple of years ago. it's so typical of us. she's always making sure she has a cute smile on her face, and i will do anything to make a picture look totally silly. i know this is kinda gross, but it still makes me laugh. i was eating buffalo chicken wings, just in case you were wondering. ;)

a photo that makes me dream
the streets of italy. can i just go there, please? i'm afraid that if/when i do, i'll never  want to come back. in my mind, it's the closest one can get to heaven. i've always dreamt of traveling to italy, for as long as i can remember.

a photo that makes me think
when i look at these photos from MA graduation, i always think about what i am doing with my life/education. i think about what i want to continue doing, why i haven't done it yet, how i am going to do it and what my ultimate goal is. 

a photo that makes my mouth water
oven brick style pepperoni and italian sausage pizza with pesto. drooling as i type this. i don't care if it's 8 in the morning, seeing this photo will make you want pizza. am i right or what?!

a photo that tells a story
this is one from mine and nate's 1st new year's together. i still remember that night vividly, and can tell you every detail. it was a very trying time in mine and nate's relationship. i really showed my ass that night, ha!

a photo that i'm most proud of
my dad got his one year sobriety chip this past christmas eve. i remember him coming home from his meeting and just walking in and handing the chip to me. i knew his sobriety anniversary was coming up, but i guess it didn't hit me until i saw the chip in my hand. i hadn't ever felt so proud of my dad!

if you do this post, please post your link. i'd love to read it. it's such a fun way to get to know someone by looking at pictures of their life.
