Here is another Saturday post for Simple Sketches. I am filling in on the A team for this sketch challenge:
And this is my take on the sketch:
If you would like to enter the sketch challenge, you have until .
I also followed the challenge board for C.S.I. 107.
The photos are of my husband and me, before we got married. Which makes these photos a couple of years, a few pounds, and two kids ago.
I tried to hit all of the colors in the scheme.
My evidence includes flowers, flair, splashes, wet medium, stripes and a grungy harlequin pattern.
I looked through the recommended website, 1000 Awesome Things, and found this prompt: When it Feels Like the Lyrics to the Song You're Listening to Were Written Just For You. When I was preparing to do this LO, I found these old pictures down in the basement. They were in frames, but we hadn't scanned them into the computer. I decided to scan them in before we move t our new house. I would hate to lose these pictures!
As I mentioned, these pictures were taken before and during our engagement, but before we were married. My husband and I went to high school together. We did not date, but were friends. (I wanted to date him, but he had a girl friend.) Despite the fact that he had this girl friend, we spent a lot of time together our senior year of high school and the summer afterwards.
My husband had a bit of a falling out over the girl friend (he wasn't her only boy friend). And then my husband and I went our separate ways. He went to the army, and I went into the navy. It took us seven years to be in the spot where we were both single. I went to visit him, and we found that we were still great friends. On my drive home, I heard the song, "If You Leave," by OMD. The lyrics, especially:
Seven years went under the bridge
Like time was standing still
Heaven knows what happens now
You've gotta, you've gotta say you will
These words hit home. During my drive, I wasn't sure what would happen between the two of us, since we lived 4 hours apart. He didn't want a long distance relationship. I didn't want to be without him. Somehow, I managed to convince him that I was worth it. This year we will celebrate our 15th anniversary.
Thanks for visiting!
