I was at David’s parents house last week and they had all these fun old pictures sprawled on their living room table. I had so much fun looking through all those pictures! It inspired me to look through all the pictures that David and I have accumulated over the last 8 years (wow, I can’t believe we’ve been together that long! Crazy…). I found a bunch of pictures on his external hard drive that I hadn’t seen in years.
It’s been really cool to look back through all these old pictures. For me, looking back at the Becky 8 years ago has given me a greater appreciation for the Becky today. It puts things into perspective and has shown me how much I’ve grown personally and how David and I’s relationship has grown. 8 years ago, I thought I was the happiest girl on the planet. I look back on those days and think “that was nothing compared to how wonderful my life is now!” It’s amazing how just a few pictures can put your whole life into focus.
I’m going to make it a goal to take more pictures. You’d think that since I’m a photographer, I’d take pictures all the time, but I really don’t. I’ve gotten better since we moved, but I still want to work on documenting this little life of ours. =)
Here are a few of the pictures I stumbled across….

David, just before bungee jumping off the Royal Gorge Bridge.
Prior to getting married, I had never cooked anything more than ramen noodles and rice. This was the first time I had ever cooked ground beef. Haha!

Miles when he was a kitten, so cute!
David was carrying me accross a river in this picture. I didn’t want to take my hiking boots off, so he became my pack mule. Love that guy!

I have a bunch more that were shot on film that I’ll have to scan in. Overall, I have a few hundred pictures that I need to label and put in albums. That’s quite a project that I have ahead of me!
