Laura over at Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy? tagged me recently to post my favourite photo for Tara at Sticky Fingers' new meme (Your Favourite Photo).
I had a number of photos instantly in mind for this post, but it is the following picture I eventually chose. It's a photo of my Mum and Dad, taken circa 1985.
Mum & Dad
I took it with a camera I had received for my birthday that same year (which I was SO excited about). I love this photo because it is a true representation of the wonderful relationship my parents have. They were married close to 40 years at the time, and celebrated 61 years of marriage last September (2009).
I say a true representation because it reminds of growing up watching them sit together on the couch in front of the tv, holding hands. And ribbing each other about everything and having a good laugh together. Since I first started driving in 1987, whenever I take Mum out in the car somewhere Dad will always say to me: "Drive carefully. You've got precious cargo on board."
They are certainly a great example for my own marriage, and I'm thankful to have parents who are so wonderful to each other, and to me.
And now it's my turn to tag some other bloggers for the same task. So here goes...What's your favourite photo and why?...
Until next time...
