Because - A post in which I blame Jessica

It snowed yesterday and I was not happy. I don't like snow. It's pretty, it's photogenic and it kills off garden destroying pests, but other than that it does very little for me. Going on a walk in the snow with my camera is cool and all and I'll indulge in the random snow ball fight, but other than that it's just cold and wet and you end up stranded in the house until it melts and - being in the south -you're sure there is no black ice on the roads. Also it chases away fiances when the roads get icy. Yeah - not cool.

I am in love with Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars. It's so awesome, it goes with the Hanger Games and the music video gives me goose bumbs - or maybe those goose bumps are from the cold in this room - I'm not sure which. Also, are Bre and I the only one who thinks the guy from The Civil Wars looks a bit like Johnny Depp? Just asking... Also I think the Safe and Sound music is more inspired by their (The Civil Wars) music than hers (Taylor Swift). It just doesn't sound like her usual kind of thing. Anyway Dance Me to the End of Love sounds similar and we all know Fearless doesn't :) So maybe the soundtrack sould read The Civil Wars ft. Taylor Swift... again, just sayin'.

I do promise more wedding plan photos once I get enough time to take some pictures of it... I just haven't got the time... Maybe some later this week, although I can't promise that because Lyssa's coming to visit Wednesday and not leaving until Tuesday and another one our friends is coming to stay one night this weekend, so we're gonna stay busy busy.

(random note - I love the song Forget Me Not by the Civil Wars - and do all their songs sound haunting?)

Anyway - now to the blaming Jessica part. Jessica from Diary of a Beautiful Soul told me about Pinterest and now I love it!! Addicting really... I'm not sure why though... Anyway I just love it now and maybe one day will join in and do a Pinterest post...

Now because a post needs a picture:

Because Mr. Darcy is sooo amazing and I'm on a Jane Austen kick (am currently reading Persuasion).

"Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you." Frederick Wentworth, Persuasion by Jane Austen.

"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

"I cannot make speeches, Emma...If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. You hear nothing but truth from me. I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it." Mr. Kightley, Emma by Jane Austen

Your's most ardently ;)

Something about Photography!

There is just something about photography. Something about being behind a camera. Something about hearing that shutter sound or adjusting the Aperture knowing just what DOF you have in mind. There is some about capturing a scene, a moment, an emotion for all time. Making a picture come out exactly how you had in mind. There is something about spur of the moment photo shoots. There is just something about it that is so wonderful, so creative... Just so amazing.

I am a moment catcher...

...a light writer...

...a shutterbug...

...a photographer...

I may not be an amazing one, I may never be one of the best, but it is what I love and what I have a passion for and I'll do it until I'm no longer capable of turning that shutter dial or compressing that oh-so-wonderful button.

I just realized...

... that I never told y'all that Superman and I set a wedding date. Y'all know we're getting married and are planning it, so I thought you might wanna know what day :) I'll also post more interesting stuff about it as I get the chance - and if I actually stop to think about it. Right now we're just scheduling things and a buying decorations and fitting dresses. Mostly getting the details down.

Anyway the date is... **duh duh duhhhhh** 
Yep - of this year too :) Isn't that a cool photo? I didn't take it, but it fit so well ;) I think I'll have one similar done. I like the idea - whose ever idea it was!
