To My Sweetheart

February 14, 2011

Ben Blair by Justin Hackworth

Happy Valentine’s Day to my sweetheart, Ben Blair. I can’t imagine anyone I would rather move to France with.

P.S. — Last fall, Justin Hackworth came to our home to shoot a photograph of Ben Blair and me to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I thought Valentine’s Day was an appropriate opportunity to share the photos. I’m so pleased with how they turned out.

These pics reminded me of the “holding hands” story you had shared with us. Good thing you held on to his hand….

I love these! You guys are a really cute couple :) It made me realize that the last time my husband and I had our picture taken was when we got engaged. They’re nice enough. But I would find a photograph of us now, after our marriage has had time to marinate, and after starting a family, way more interesting and sentimental. Perhaps that would have been the perfect valentine’s gift for him! Maybe next year…

How do you guys have six kids? You look so young! These photos are beautiful! It’s a nice reminder to those of us with kids to take a few with just the parents, to remember that you’re a couple first and mama/papa second.

How beautiful! I love you guys. You’re the only thing that could distract me from the fact that your bookshelves are organized by color.

I think all couples should take sweet photos like these, don’t you? What a great keepsake for your children and grandchildren to have.

Lovely pictures. What a beautiful couple.
Could I ask a funny question. I have curly hair like you do. I love it, but I have yet to find the perfect products to use in my hair. Would you mind sharing what you use? Your hair always looks beautiful and frizz free.

wonderful pictures! I love that you wear your hair curly as I do too. I haven’t straightened it in about 8 years! I love your shorter cut but I don’t know if I can pull it off b/c my hair is so thick! thecoolkidsblog.com

Wow… so beautiful, but what I *really* want to know is… how on earth did you manage to have 6 kids and still look so good?!? And your home always look so neat and beautiful! I have only 3 kids (half of what you have!!) and my place always look like the third world war started and ended in it… Sigh…
