Last night I was making a photo book for Don’s parents for Christmas. And as I assembled the photos it started to dawn on me that most our pictures as a couple are in photo booths or while in costume. We have zero, count them zero, of the standard “couple” pictures. There does not exist a single photo of us at a wedding, in a bar, hugging on a hay bale, or posed with all our friends on some large body of water, joyfully exhibiting our youth.
I think it’s especially funny because neither one of us is extroverted or particularly into dressing up. I can’t tell you the last time I wore a costume on Halloween…
I like that we’re goofy. And I like that we’re non-traditional.
But I sure hope our wedding pictures don’t involve a Civil War reenactment.
And I am for sure not wearing a Princess Lea costume, I can tell you that much.
