Fat, family and photos

A little while ago I read this amazing blog post: So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed. I loved this bit in particular:

And if you’re thinking that high school friend on Facebook will say to herself (“wow she has gained weight”) then . . . newsflash you DID. You gained weight. Shed a tear. Read a book. Drink a Sweet Tea. Watch Oprah. Whatever it takes. Accept this reality . . . YOU GAINED WEIGHT. The truth is you’ve gained a lot of other things too (a career, a family, some kids, a house, a love for travel, the ability to coordinate your separetes . . . ) and that girl from high school is going to spend a lot more time hating on those things then she ever will on your double chin.

Because that’s exactly what I do think, mainly thanks to Facebook, but god, who cares?!

So here are some photos that I meant to post here at the time my amazing friend Sam (Wyldshots) took them, but I held back because I look fatter than I like to think I look (also, I was horribly in need of a haircut). They’re gorgeous though, aren’t they?
