So Many Regrets

Sometimes when I want to blog but have nothing new to say, I just re-read some old posts and that satisfies me.  I like seeing what I was doing at this time last year.  March 2009 was really eventful and exciting and awesome, which is funny, because this March is pretty dang boring.  But it was a post in March 2008 that inspires this post.  We were in the midst of planning our wedding and I posted 4 of our favorite wedding-invitation-engagement-picture candidates.  (Not our favorite engagement pictures--many of our favorites were too graffiti-y for my mom.)  Anyways, not only does that post hold the record for # of comments I've received (some of which are so funny), but it is also the source of huge regret.

Why did we choose #1??  As soon as they were printed I had doubts.  And then they were sent out--and I KNEW it was a mistake.  Whenever I see that picture on a fridge (ok just my parents' fridge at this point) I cringe.  I just don't like it at all anymore!  What happened?  We OBVIOUSLY should have sent out #3 or #4.  It's so clear to me NOW.  I hate the Past Me the made such a stupid decision!

Wow. That was a lot of comments. I tend to like the past you. I know the past ME sure liked her. Present me likes present you also. I'm glad we didn't choose the awkward arm picture.

I agree, but I think it should've been #4 for sure. Not that #1 was a loser, but #4 just has more pizazz.

I'm agreeing on the #4 thing--I think your smiles are a lot brighter in that one than in the others. And the graffitti is awesome--I will take ALL of my pictures in front of graffitti'd walls and like bars and homeless people, so that mom can't use that as a reason for taking one picture over another :)

Nutcase! #1 is still a CUTE one. Your smiles are so natural. I love the tilt of your head. You look like you were talking together (in a scary alley?) and just looked up to see me (or the zombie....) I'm NOT going to take it off the fridge--you can't make me. Plus it is also on my baby fridge at school! :) oxox

I have nothing negative to say about this post. All who read your blog are overjoyed. Our hearts are full.

Whatever guys. I like #2. You look like angels recently descended from heaven with the celestial glow still upon you.
