My earliest memory of Drew was in Sunday School around 7 years old…he was 5. He was cute. But he was too young. Fast forward a few years to me singing in my girlfriend’s wedding, and my future (amazing) mother in law saw me and went home to tell Drew that he should drive to the church and ask me out. He didn’t, but he did come through my coffee stand a few weeks later to see if I wanted to go on a date. I didn’t. But….a few months later, we were brought together again through a series of birthday, christmas and new years parties that he kept stalking me at. Somehow…he just kept showing up…and all though I rolled my eyes and was slightly annoyed that he was crashing my life. The odd thing was…he had everyone laughing and was the entertainment. I kept on my course of snubbing him…but he was just too cocky to get the hint. By Valentines Day…he made one last ditch effort and brought 1 light pink rose to my coffee stand. When I showed up for work, it was there waiting for me. It was gutsy, it was ballsy and I liked that he was confident enough to try to get what he wanted. So…I was ready to go out with him. Then…He didn’t show up at my stand for 2 full weeks (after coming in everytime he saw my yellow ’73 Volkswagen Super Beetle). My mother begged me to call him…and was just too stubborn to. But luckily, he came by and I said thank you. He proceeded to ask me to go to see the Troll Under the Bridge, and …for the most part, the rest was history. :)
We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary in one of our favorite places…Palm Springs. It was magical. We laid by the pool and talked. I loved it.
I sometimes write about being married…after 10 years, I do have some knowledge about it. Here are a few of my favorite posts:
That’s our love story, and I would LOVE to hear yours.
My son loves anything. He’s a glass half full kinda kid. This shoot is one day when we were checking out the property that would soon become our new home and studio. They’ve been my willing models whenever I got a new lens , camera, or just had a wild idea for a shoot. My kids love the water, being outside…and I love being there with them! Thats partly why I love my job so much!
Here is how we spent New Years Day this year.
This was a follow-up to the Eye Of the Tiger video we made last year. What can I say? We’re a little strange and my daughter likes a good lip sync…I mean, who doesn’t???
