Goodness, I take my first artistic photo (not of a person) to scrap and it is not of a beautiful flower --but of my hubby's combat boots!! LOL I figured this was some therapy for me. My hubby is in the military and soon will be deploying to Iraq in 2 months---3rd time 'round. I'm feeling ansy about it and it weighs over me something heavy. I hate when he's gone but have become stronger because of it. The story behind this photo is this: The other night, I was putting some clothes in the wash and glanced over at my hubby's boots and I felt so safe. Hard to explain the emotion. I immediately was inspired to take pictures and journal about these boots.
The journaling reads:
These boots--the countless times I've picked them up and taken them to the bedroom and the many times I've asked you to please pick them up and get them out of the way.
These boots--they sometimes smell because your feet sweat from being in them for over 24 hours.
----Despite all of that, I'd rather stumble over these boots and smell their stink--because when these boots are here, it means you are here!! They are an extension of you and all that you stand for. I love you sweetie--you and your smelly ole boots!! xoxo
I used a sketch from an ezine on this! The scan's not that great on the right side because of the ribbon. Thanks for looking and Happy Monday!
