So, I was all set to show you our engagement photos today because Ten Years Ago (Today!), Brandon's friend (thank you, Maren!) took our engagement/announcement photos in her grandmother's lovely backyard. Yes, on Halloween (but it was in the afternoon). The pictures were simple, they were done with a non-digital camera (I'm getting old!), they were just what I wanted! And I have two sheets of proofs that I wanted to show you.
But today is a rotten day. Because:
...my computer freezes every time I try to scan those photos.
...I can't stop eating Halloween candy (that's a big no-no!).
...I have a cold. My first one of the season.
...I just found out that less than a week after Brandon gets home, he has to do some more international travel.
...I have guests coming over tonight for dinner and the Trunk-or-Treat at our Church parking lot, but I'm still in my pajamas, the kitchen is a mess, and I just feel like going back to bed.
...I really wanted to share those engagement photos!
In an effort to give you some idea, here's part of our wedding announcement. I shared it last year, it doesn't have any of the words on it (we did that postcard-type announcement. Gotta save trees!), and it makes me sad because I was all proud of myself for being on time with all my Year of Tens posts. And now it's all messed up.
Sigh, sigh, sigh (and some pouting, too).
Here's the picture:
