PICTURES AND A GIVEAWAY!

A while back I did a post called Pictures Say A Thousand Words, basically it was 10 of my favorite photos that captured moments I never want to forget.  I had said how I wanted to do something like that again, so this time I thought I would twist it up.  Let me tell you, this was not an easy task to narrow down my favorites.  I take a lot of dang pictures with my i-phone camera.  Maybe one of these days, as in my birthday, which happens to be at the end of April, I will have a new fancy camera.  Dreams of having photos of a higher quality.  Okay, sorry i'm done day dreaming now. Here are my top 10 photos of 2014 so far.


1.  I love this photo. It's from New Years Eve festivities and I think it captures Phil and I perfectly.  We are totally zoned out from the rest of the party and are into our own thing.  We are dancing together, laughing, and blaring it out.  We may or may not be the best singers but you know what it just fucking feels good to blare it out sometimes.  This photo just screams happy to me. 


2.  I cheated with this one because it's from Christmas but I couldn't not include it.  This was our first night in St. Thomas.  Again we are dancing.  What does it for me, is the way I am looking at Phil.  I don't' want to forget this moment of being on vacation and all the great feelings you have.  We are young, happy, in love and we just got 2 new souvenir mugs.  Life is good. 


3.  How cool is it that under water cameras exist?  This captured my first time snorkeling.  Of course we are doing the whole cute lovey thing of holding hands under water. 


4. This is from the first day on our cruise back in January!  I was happy to be reunited with my bestest, to be in the warm sun, sunglasses on, beer in hand and to be on our 3rd cruise together. 



5.  This was from one of the best days that I have had in a long time.  I don't know if you can tell but we were all having a really damn good time.  In the picture is Phil's Mom, Dad and Sister Mary from a day trip in St. Thomas while on our cruise.  It was so great to be able to see them again even if it was just for the day.  We spent the day, snorkeling, swimming, drinking (I may have over served myself just a little) and sharing many laughs.


6. Me and my mother.  It may not be the best picture of us but it's the moment in this that I don't want to forget.  This is again from our day trip in St. Thomas.  My mom met Phil's parents for the first time, which was a huge deal for me.  I had been stressing about it for weeks and we all really just had the best day together. I am so thankful for Jane and Greg opening up there arms to us and having us on their boat for a fun little adventure!


7.  My little nephew turned 3. This lil man forever has my heart.  Seriously he stole it the second he was born.  I moved here to be close to him and watching him grow up has been one of my favorite things in my life.  I have a bond with him that I will never understand but that's what makes it so special. Being a part of this day was really memorable.  


8.  Me and my friend Lindsay.  This was the night for me where I truly gained a best friend.  She is my lifting partner, my boxing buddy, this girl I vent to after a bad day, the girl knows when I'm having a bad day without even saying anything, and the girl I go to when I need a good laugh.  Many of you know I was having a hard time not having any girlfriends who weren't 600 miles away.  So it was a good feeling to know I have a friend I care about so much that's just minutes away.


9.  This picture is from Dragons 1 Year Anniversary as part of our family.  She is truly our little princess who is beyond spoiled.  Speaking of, she is cuddled up next to me keeping me warm.  Anyways, it has been a crazy time since she has come into our lives.  She has taught us a lot about love, our relationship, our patience and about responsibilities.  But most of all she has taught me to never judge a book by its cover.  Yes, she is a Pit Bull and they are stereotyped as the dogs that fight to kill.  But what it comes down to is the people that raise these dogs to be fighters.  It's not just Pit Bulls, any dog can be trained to kill.  If you knew her you would know she would lick your face off, make you smile and laugh, great you at the door when you come home from work, knows when you are feeling down, snuggles with you till you fall asleep, and is the best TV watcher buddy.


10.  This was just taken a few weeks ago when my niece and nephew came to visit.  We were sitting watching Thomas the Train, which is their favorite and both asked to sit on my lap.  It was one of the moments where I just melted.  I truly am so blessed to be the Aunt to Liam and Kayleigh.
