Favorite Photo from Florence

Day 17: A favorite photo of yourself and why you love it


I'm pretty sure I've shown this photo here before but I thought I'd include it again for today's prompt.  This was actually a really easy choice for me to make.  This photo was taken back in 2009 in Florence, Italy.  The Fancy Fiance (then The Boyfriend) decided to travel around Europe for a few months after he took the bar exam.  I was still in school at the time so he went alone.  However, being the dedicated student that I am, I skipped classes for two weeks* to join him for a tour around Italy and a quick weekend in Madrid.  His cousin Max was with us for the first week and joined us in Florence, Siena, Luca, & Rome.  It was Max who took this photo.

Technically, the photo is imperfect but it means a lot to me for so many other reasons.  It was my first trip to Europe, our first vacation together, and even though I'm pale, jetlagged, and wearing basically no makeup, I actually like how I look in it because I look happy.  We were and are happy and, to me, this photo shows it.  It's one of my favorites of us and of myself.

*I also got more A's that semester than any other semester of law school.  I should've taken more trips to Europe when class was in session ...

  5. For me, it's always the memories behind pictures that mean so much more than the way the picture actually looks. What a special and fun time...
