Explanation: After spending New Years Eve 2009 at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, we vowed to return someday. We dream of spending every New Years overlooking this amazing volcano lake. Someday... :)

I've been trying to catch up and snapping some shots for days 1-8. Here, I will post my first 8 days worth of photos. The photos will appear as I catch up. I'll try to do a post each day in February from here on out. Enjoy! (And it's not too late for you to join the fun either! Click Here for details)
Joy of Love #1 What They Do
Joy of Love #2 How They Look
Prompt: Capture your loved one at their best (or at their worst). Or both. What you’re trying to capture is the TRUE essence/expression/attitude/posture that SCREAMS your
prompt: How long have you known your loved one? What has changed since you first met him or her? Try to capture this change in photos. it would be even cooler if you can show a photo from the time you first met him and put it side by side with a now photo. Or have your loved one hold the “Then” photo and snap the camera!
Joy of Love #4 What They Wear
prompt: Photograph your loved one’s clothes (either on him or in the closet). This can be when they are dressed up or dressed down.
Joy of Love #5 Love To Hate*
You KNOW your loved one does something that drives you NUTS (but you LOVE to
complain about it and the day just wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t have to complain about
it). Capture it…if it is a non-physical thing, then just try to take a photo of something that embodies the idea.
*NOTE- I don't actually hate this, but Tom does pull these blue sweatpants up WAY too high and wears them around the house like this. Annoyingly sweet and cute- don't you change sweetheart!
Joy of Love #6 Who They Love
Besides you, who is the apple of his/her eye? Is it your dog, the kids, his parents, his sibling? Document them with their loved one! If the loved one is not close by, then have them hold a photo of their “beloved”…this can also work for loved ones who have passed away.
Joy of Love #7 Generations
Get your loved one with all the generations of family that are close by. If this is not possible due to military deployments or family not being close, then just tuck this prompt away for when everyone is close together again.
Joy of Love #8 Gift From The Heart
What has your spouse (or loved one) given or promised to you (material or immaterial)? Try to capture this “gift” from their heart.

Highlights included some little birds from Grandma Jean and 2 new goldfish in a tank from Nana and Papa. I made cupcakes that had some Mickey Mouse wrappers on them. Zeke kept calling him Sticky Mouse. He loves his new fish, and we had a great time watching the first ever full length movie as a family- Finding Nemo. What a great day. Happy Birthday, Zeke!
