Another Small Town in Texas

Last week, I brought you photos from my hometown of Cameron, TX. This week, I bring you photos of my mom’s hometown of Caldwell, TX.

Snapshots of my hometown

Saturday afternoon I went on an adventure… an adventure to snap photos around my  hometown. There are many more I wish to take another time… but for now, I thought you might like to see a little bit of where I came from:

This picture…

I spent far longer than I care to admit trying to come up with a blog topic in which I could use the following picture.

I. Love. This. Photo.

I received this photo in an email from a Fiddle regular turned friend, Joy. I had completely forgotten she had taken it. And as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use it in a blog post. A picture this awesome? It deserves to be on the blog. Right?

But I just couldn’t come up with a topic in which it really fit. And then I decided, maybe I should just feature the photo. Yeah, that sounds good. I love this photo, because when I look at it I see so many things at once.

I see a very happy couple. I see my best friend and husband. I see the way he makes me smile. I see laughter. I see happiness.

I see love.

I see a strong partnership. I see two people who have gone through a lot together, and who will face a lot together in the future. I see two people with hopes and dreams.  I see two people who’ve already accomplished a lot.  I see success, and I see the wisdom learned from failures. I see two people who are each other’s biggest  fan.

I see we are in the bar that was such a huge part our life for as long as we have known each other. I see hours of hard work done as a total labor of love.  I see a photographer, blogger, and bartender. I see a musician, bus driver, and over-all hard worker. I see two future bar owners, and new homeowners. I see two people making a life side-by-side, hand-in-hand.

I see US.

Funny how a quick, in-passing photo can say so much.

I. Love. This. Photo.
