Our Wedding – Throw Back Thursday

Our wedding day was one of the happiest of our lives. In addition to living on in memories, our day lives on in the over 1000 photos our amazing photographer, Chance James took. Ironically, though we’ve now been married a year, we haven’t ordered a wedding album yet, though I did consider it as an anniversary present. There were so many wonderful images that tell our story. We were married on Monastery Beach on Carmel by the Sea. It was a beautiful and cool day.

Nike Women’s Half Marathon 2010 – Throw Back Thursday (TBT)

October 2017 will be the seventh anniversary of my running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon with my good friend, Kathy. In addition to making memories, the experience and the previous day’s race associated activities were captured by our friend Rachel Kumar. Her work can be seen at Shot by Rachel. All photos taken by and used with permission of Rachel. She did a wonderful job capturing everything in a documentary style including this active shot in which my eyes are closed, something common for me in photos.

Throw Back Thursday (TBT) Dad and I – 1990

Yesterday was my late dad’s birthday. I miss him all the time especially on days like yesterday or when I have special moments in my life that I wish he could be here for. As someone with a photojournalism degree, I don’t ironically have a lot of photos of him and photos of us together are more rare, in part as he didn’t like being in photos and in part as he was often the one taking the photos.

One of the oldest ones I have of us together is one of my favorites, in part as it has us both looking young and in part as it shows so much about us in a single image. This photo was taken in 1990 at the occasion of my Cousin Alysse’s Bat Mitzvah. My dad’s hair had gotten a bit lighter, but was years away from turning gray, and mine was its true dark brown color that often looks black in photos.

Throw Back Thursday – SF Giants – Home Opener as a Special Road Trip 

Last year was the first time I was able to take off work to join Matt to view the San Francisco Giants’ Home Opener. Rather than a home based party as is his tradition, we combined the day with road trip to complete some very special errands as part of the process to get our marriage license.

Throw Back Thursday (TBT) – Wrestlemania 31

Two years ago, on March 25, 2015, Matt and I went to the entertainment event of a lifetime, Wrestlemania 31 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. As lifelong wrestling fans, it was a dream come true for both of us, so in honor of Wrestlemania 33, which we watched from home, I’m posting memory photos all taken by Matt as my blog’s first Throw Back Thursday.
