My husband and I celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary this week. We had a date night in and had fun taking some romantic pics.
We took lots of shots ;) but here are a few that I can share with you.
In the above pic I am wearing a headband I made, no longer in my shop, but If you want to order one let me know, $8 and free shipping. The lace bracelet I made for $1 and you can find a tutorial for it on this blog on the DIY page. My cami is from Victoria Secrets (hard to see), and lots of costume pearls (not wearing much else, he he he).
I must mention the crazy hair, I had just taken my hair out of a bun and this is what I ended up with. My hair is somewhat naturally curly, after being in a bun for a couple hours is gets kind of crazy.
I know my arm looks awkward. This is actually my wedding dress from 11 years ago.Since I have lost so much weight since that day, I was holding the back tight so it would look more fitted. Rosette necklace I won from the shop Statement by Tootsie. I still love my simple dress. I think I will have it taken in, maybe we can renew our vows and I can wear it again someday. This picture is a reflection in a mirror. My husband of course took all of the pics. He has been studying photography, and loves every time I am willing to pose for him.
I had just painted my toes that day to match a blue outfit I was wearing, I tried to make tree branches in black and glitter blue on them. They ended up matching the sheets, so I had Jerry take a pic. I know my toes are creepy long but they do look a little prettier dressed in pearls.
This might be my favorite pic of the night. I love that the focus is not me but of the pretty strand of pearls dangling from my feet.
If you are going to leave comments please be kind. I am in no way a model nor claim to be. I have serious issues that I deal with on a daily basis with self image. I have struggled with anorexia in earlier years. Although I have conquered those demons, I still struggle with seeing myself in a positive way. Having lost a lot of weight and having had two kids, there are certain things I will never be comfortable with on my body. If you are with me in this boat, I encourage you even more so to take pics like these and conquer your fears. It's nice that I have someone like my husband by my side telling me how beautiful I am. Although I don't see what he sees, I have learned to not argue with him, and take the complement with grace. I know that through loving eyes he will always see me in a way I only dream I could. For my loving husband, I am truly blessed.
Well that's my date night. If you haven't ever had a photography date night in, I suggest you try it. You will want to use a digital camera of course, easy to view, easy to delete :)
Now it's time to share your date night adventures...
