you have taken in your adorable toddler/grandchild/ neice and nephew/ puppy to a studio and the next thing you know you are forking out 20 bucks for a photo. ONE photo.
One you know would only cost 2 bucks to print at Wal-Mart and maybe even less on your home computer....
but you get sucked in.
You have to have that image...that shot, that one perfect glimpse in time.
That is how I felt when they e-mailed me this image
Because while I know that I am not perfect, this moment was.
I was afraid to run my first half marathon alone. I was afraid to run it in a different place, I was afraid to run it after laying around for 2 months with a bummer ankle and toothache.
But I did it anyway.
All by myself....
....and this photo takes me right back to the moment that I did it.
So for that, I will pay.
Do we really capture enough of the celebration moments to relish and relive?
What's more, do we give ourselves cause to celebrate?
