He makes me smile!


It’s an idea that’s been stored somewhere in the back of my mind for almost a year now.  It was born last Valentine’s Day as I took multiple pictures of my babies dressed in ‘i heart daddy’ shirts.  Picture after picture the camera captured their every move.  And then - after we had adequately celebrated the day of love – I reviewed the constant stream of pink and red photos.  That almost looks like video, I thought to myself.  Oh my awesome.  A video out of still shots? That’d be rad.  Radder than rad.  The ideas were flowing.  My creative mind was spinning.  Next year, I promised myself. Next year.
And then it was next year, and I forgot all about it.  Imagine that.
Until Saturday morning.  And although I was starting a little late in the game, I decided to give it a try.  Because really, procrastination is an unappreciated art form.  And some of us (ahem, me) work best in the very last minute anyway.  Or at least I find comfort in telling myself that.
Not going to lie, I wish I’d started earlier.  I had so many other ideas that were left out simply because of a lack of time. And my kids are only entertained by taking pictures of felt hearts on the wall for so long, and then they start demanding my constant attention.  But the final product {all 398 photos of it} still makes me smile. 
And so does my husband.  I love you Spencer.  Happy Valentine’s Day to my best friend.  Thanks for caring for me.  Thanks for appreciating me.  Thanks for loving me.  Thanks for making me smile.
To you, Spence, on Valentine's Day:

I am working on something similar!! My son's first year of life I compiled all his pictures and videos and made a 25 minute video collage of his whole first year set to music and gave DVD's out on his birthday! I am doing the same thing this year. I've gotten to September...now i have to finish in the next twenty some days because my son's birthday is on March 7th.

Anyway I think that is really neat! You did a good job!!

I'm following from the monday blog hop and I'd love for you to follow back.
