Memories

I lost something that means a lot to me. A camera. My little point and shoot. I was filming Elle and set it down when she tried to eat it, and haven't see it since. Sad is an understatement.
It holds the memory of her first time eating, first time rolling over, countless baths and mornings when she would wake up laughing and I would crawl on the floor and video her without her knowing. I know that I also hold these memories, but I loved watching them over and over and showing her grandparents. I always thought about the day that I would show them to her and say, "Look that's you!"
Meanwhile, I have looked everywhere and found $60, my Ipod, and our honeymoon photos. Glad to have these things back plus the J.Crew coat I spent the cash on (hey it was like free money), but I desperately want our camera back too. Sigh.

Alas, here are some of the honeymoon shots I found. We went to the Dominican Republic.
LOVE BIRDS
Not to be too cheese ball, just seems fitting for the occasion and the pic.

The last two are my absolute favorites, but I will take them all. Go ahead and print them for me. Do you offer delivery?

Seriously, I am in love with all of your photographs from the Dominican Republic!
