I Hate To Wake You Up

If you read Ralphie's blog, you might not know she makes the best caramel popcorn I've ever tasted, or that her girls rush to the door when we come over or that we have gone to her house for the past few weeks, pulled all the cushions off the couch and watched So You Think You Can Dance on the floor of their office. You might not know that, but if you read Ralphie's blog, you do know she's an incredible photographer.

This weekend is Bart and my fourth wedding anniversary. It's also the weekend we move away from Texas. In light of those two momentous occasions, we asked Ralphie to take some pictures of us, something to remember us, her, and Texas by.

I'm not sure exactly what I had in mind when I asked her, but her photographs turned out even better than I could have hoped.

You can see them here on Ralphie's blog.

(Also, I might feel bad about saying, "Go look at these pictures of how lovely we are" except that I'm currently sitting in my pajamas, with my hair a post-gym sweaty mess, no makeup, and glasses on. I'll take what loveliness I can right now).

  4. So fun. I personally LOVE that almost all of them involve a book (but the principles of arithmetic? I don't presume you're actually reading that one...)

    Looking at them made me remember that once upon a time I knew Bart fairly well and that I have never actually met you. Funny world! I do hope we meet up on the east coast someday :). I'm planning on it, actually.

  6. Gorgeous pictures! I can't decide which one I like best, though I really, really like the one of you two gazing in each other's eyes on the blanket. That's just too cute!

  16. Oh my goodness, those are perfect! They create such a lovely feeling...I totally want to go one a picnic right now and read a book...nevermind the fact it's 11pm here. :)

  17. Love them...although maybe Bart needed to bring a calculator to hold while you held all the books??

    Also, in those close ups of you reading the book and then looking at the camera, I have no doubt in my mind that you were actually reading the book :)
