I rarely post photos of myself up on the blog, but I really love this photo and since it’s quite popular on Flickr1 I thought I would share it for this week’s Flickr Friday. We went to London for a weekend in January 2007, a time when our relationship had just passed a pretty big hurdle and despite shifting away from thin ice, it was still hovering near some.
This photo reminds me of what we’ve been through, and how great it is to be where we are now and to have been given a second chance to appreciate each other. It’s wonderful that we’re both the kind of people who have the tendency to take things for granted but realise the error of our ways before it’s too late. Or maybe I should say that we’re just the kind of people that are able to realise when we’ve made a mistake and taken something for granted and correct it before it’s too late.
It was freezing on the bus, but it was a wonderful way to see everything we wanted to in the short time that we had in London. That’s the other great thing I love about us, we can see the practicality in things and most times we can agree on what to do – of course we both still compromise from time to time but I like to think that we see eye to eye on most situations. Also, he took this photo which makes it even more special to me.
