I was excited for today.
Then I learned a lesson:
Don't put it off.
Yup. That's what I did. I took a few shots in the morning. Nothing serious. Then I decided I could just wait until my kiddos were in bed to get my awesome challenge winner. Bad decision, right there. I went out with my friend Heidi and we tried. We even found the park that my husband and I went to on our honeymoon 7 years ago. It was a special place, a beautiful night... and I just couldn't get a flare!
Go figure, right?
While the sunset was amazing, the clouds were taking away the chance of any worthy sunflares. That, or my mind just wasn't it in the game because I kept thinking of my husband, and my shots were sad because of that. Either way, putting it off ended up making my day nothing like I thought it would be.
Luckily I did snap those few shots in the morning. If I hadn't... I would have had nothing for today.
Take my advice: If you have a goal, never put it off. You don't know if waiting that one extra hour might result in you losing the goal all together.
Even though these aren't flare shots, I wanted to share them. They were taken at the park. Seven years ago I was a newlywed at this same park, holding hands and laughing with my husband on our honeymoon. I haven't been to that park since. Going there made me smile. And made me want to take him back there once again.
