Show and Tell Tuesday: Pictures are My Love Language

I once had a friend in college who said, “I need to take more pictures because pictures are my Mom’s love language.”

It was said in passing in a conversation, but I have never forgotten that statement!

And I’m 100% positive that the powers that be need to officially state pictures as another love language.

It would rank as my top love language, hands down.

So when I saw today’s prompt for Show and Tell Tuesday, I KNEW I had to participate. I figured it would be pretty easy to post my top 5 pictures ever taken.

Um, it was way harder than I expected to narrow it down to only FIVE!

I cheated and picked six, but two of them are the same category, so that counts, right?

NUMBER FIVE:

This picture was taken at a wedding in Niger, and I will always love it. Even though I haven’t lived in Africa in 8 years, I still consider it home. I miss it so much and when I look at this picture I can hear the sounds, see the colors and feel the heat on my skin. It makes me miss it so much.

No automatic alt text available.

NUMBER FOUR:

Both of these pictures were taken in 2016 and they are already both missing members of the family, haha!

Theo’s immediate family: (Jamie and Kiah in utero, so not pictured!)

My immediate family: (technically, we are ALL in this picture, but the two in utero are a little bit hard to see 😉 )

 

NUMBER THREE

It’s kinda strange that one of my top 5 pictures is me approximately 10 hours after I gave birth, huh? I know it’s not the most flattering picture of me, but it’s hands-down my favorite picture of our family (so far!). The joy on our faces is just so, so evident.

 

NUMBER TWO:

Oh, my sweet Abigail. We took this picture at her goodbye party, which I cried through most of. Life with this girl was a wild ride. I think I felt every emotion imaginable in the nine months that she was with us. My heart grew more than I could ever express, and this picture sums it up for me!

 

NUMBER ONE:

Of course I have to pick a wedding picture as my favorite, right? This picture doesn’t need any words.

Image may contain: one or more people, wedding and outdoor

 

What about you? What are your top five pictures ever?
