Oh my goodness, I'm totally slacking on this photo thing! Oh well, life catches up with ya sometimes...
So the Day 7 photo assignment for Monday was to take a picture of generations. Seeing as how I couldn't gather up a couple generations of my family yesterday, I'm going to skip that day. The teacher did say that if our family wasn't around to save that assignment for another day! So I'm going to do that.
Tuesdays assignment, Day 8, was to take a photo of a gift from the heart from someone we love. This picture is very 'personal', but I guess all of them all! I guess it's a little touchy to me because of what people think about it.
A few months ago I was having a really hard time figuring out what I wanted out of my relationship with Vince. I took a little time apart and stayed with my grandparents so I could get a little time for myself and get away from the situation I was so used to. I am SO glad I did because it erased any doubts that I had.
It made me love him even more and know in my heart that this is the exact situation I wanted to be in. To show him that I was committed to him and that I wouldn't 'leave' him again I wanted to get this tattoo on my ring finger. I know that Vince and I will always be together. There's no doubt in my mind about that, and he knows it too.
I was going to go get the tattoo without telling him, but then I got nervous and told him about it! He was surprised I was going to do it but you could tell he was ecstatic about it and loved the idea. I see that as his gift to me, because he knows tattoos are permanent and he knows what it would mean if I got the tattoo.
The thing that gets to people is that he doesn't have one yet! I got it as a commitment to him, and he's going to get one in place of his wedding ring, meaning he won't get one until we get married. A lot of people express that they think it's weird that I have it even though I'm not married, but at the same time I don't need a certificate saying that I'm going to be with him until one of us dies. I just know and I'm confident in that.
So that was Day 8.
For Day 9, today, we are supposed to take pictures of their passions and hobbies. Seeing as how I already took bike pictures and that's his one hobby that occupies his life, I took a picture of his hands.
He is ALWAYS working with them and fiddling with stuff.
He also wouldn't let me take a picture of what I really wanted, him working on a bike. I went to his work near closing but he said he would be too embarrassed. Silly!
