It’s David’s birthday today.
And this may be one of my favorite photos that I have of us. It was taken in 2008, on a visit to LACMA. They had a photo booth there and we jumped in and took this set.
One thing that I remember clearly is that you could see “inside” the booth–that is to say, that the long line of people waiting to have their photo taken could see the photos on a screen outside the booth, as they were being shot.
When we emerged from the booth, a girl called over to me, “Boy! He really loves you!”
It was a sweet thing to say. And a sweet way that he has always made me feel. And I think, too, you can surely see it in my eyes–I’m smitten. And these pics were taken 12 years into our relationship…
I’m pleased to say that a friend recently told me that in her observations of us as a couple together, she noticed that I still flirt with D. (Why yes, I do)!
And I think that is not too shabby. 19 years next month.
Happy Birthday–love you, Pops…
