LOTD #142 – Remember . . .

LOTD 142The picture was old and faded, much like he was.

He gently touched the burnt edges with his finger, still amazed it had survived the fire.

The same amazement he’d felt when he survived his first encounter with enemy fire.

His mother had been so beautiful.

Today is Memorial Day in the US – a day of family, fun, picnics, parties at the lake, and whatnot.

But it’s also a day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

So take a few moments today, pause, and give thanks for the freedoms you enjoy based on the sacrifices of others.

For those of you who are past, present, or future servicemen or women – THANK YOU.  ♥♥♥

Sequence #1 – Ballet

Black SwanThis post ended up being a lot of things all rolled into one.

I’ve been having so much fun taking photos in costumes, and I came across my Black Swan costume from Boudoir.

I love it, but just never got around to using it in a routine.

So I decided to go take some photos in it.

While I was taking photos, I began hunting around in inventory for an old ballet sequence I could use in the photo shoot.

Then I decided I would post the sequence.

But I wanted to do a short little video, so that everyone could see what the sequence looked like.

Hubs and I got to talking and he wanted to upgrade our video editor/recorder.

So while he spent hours finding the program he wanted, I got busy taking photos and getting a quickie little dance put together.

I’ll include the details for the outfit at the bottom of the post.

The sequence was originally set to other music, but I think it turned out pretty well for something I threw together in a couple of hours.

Kisses to my sweet husband, who shot the video and edited it for me. ❤
