Life isn't perfect.
Relationships aren't perfect.
Marriage isn't perfect.
But that's the way they are supposed to be.
And so in keeping with perfect imperfections
we have a far from perfect photo for this month.
It could have been such a cute one too,
if my camera remote wasn't misbehaving,
and if we weren't on a serious time limit,
as two small children were running away behind us at great speed.
But do you know what?
I really like it,
because we had fun.
And that is exactly why I wanted to do Me and You
and make an effort to take a monthly photo of us,
to give us silly, simple opportunities to do something together.
Because doing silly, simple things together is what makes us, us.
We don't have far fetched dreams,
we have real ones.
About our own happy ever afters,
and making beautiful memories.
Not far fetched,
but not to be knocked either.
Because I'm pretty sure that when we are old and grey
(or should that be greyer Mr R)
we'll look back at these photos
and know what we had the best dreams all along,
and that we had lots of fun making them come true.
This month's words come from Better Together by Jack Johnson.
As with some of the lyrics from previous months,
this song was played during our wedding.
I was listening to it again when I was editing this photo,
and the sunshiny sound of that song,
matches the sunshiny yellow in these photos I think.
If you would like to join in
with capturing you and your other half each month
then it's never too late to join us.
Becky, Fritha, Kirsty and I would love to see your cute couply photos.
Make sure you check out all their posts too
You won't be disappointed.
