My "go to".

So what's your "go to" when you've had an off moment, day, week, month [ya, you get it].  ?

Where do you turn?
Who do you turn to?
Music?
Friends?
Gym?
Walls? [the ones without any holes......yet]
Family?

Well, for me, today . . . it's photos.
Photos of my favoUrite happy, awesome, giddy, silly and special days.

Sorry, no explanations will be given as to why - but each one has a unique significance to me.  And I'm selfish, I wanted them all in one place so I can stop searching through files when I'd like to see them.








The camera.  One of the best inventions.  ever.

Hey, it's me - the guy who is dead to you. I just wanted to let you know that photos are a 100% cure for the blahs. Of course all those family photos only get you 99% of the way there. You are missing one photo and you know what it is (and don't be stealing it from my blog!).

Emz said...

Ok fine. I'll give you the gift of re-birth but you better be nice. I'm off to steal your photo.

Allie said...

You know every time you show a picture of your abs my girl crush gets a little stronger. :)

Pics are the best, especially when you look like you do. :)

Allie said...

PS that sounded a little creepy and I was more going for funny. FAIL!

Petraruns said...

OMG. If EVER in my life I looked like that in a bikini - after having a baby nonetheless you nut! - I would frame that photo in every room it would be my wallpaper my car would be plastered with it. Woman! You're gorgeous!

Leah B. said...

I love the photos! I turn to music and running or a good book. It's nice to fall into a story to block stress out!

Allie, don't feel bad...she has awesome abs and is my inspiration!!! :)

Emz said...

Allie & Petra you guys kill me. I don't see what you see. no joke. I'm blissfully grateful for the comment though.

Karine said...

As much as I understand and appreciate the outward beauty of Emz, trust me, her "inner beauty" is an even better.

With a family this gorgeous I'd paste pictures inside my sunglasses!

Teamarcia said...

Gorgeous family! Glad they lift you out of your blahs.

Melissa said...

You know what is going to make my day? When I take that bikini pic of you and put my head on it and frame it on my desk. LOL Just joking. I'm not a total stalker. :)

Quinton J said...

I already took that bikini pic and put my head on it. Now to find a frame...

Amy said...

Yes! I just took some albums out of storage and am waiting for one of THOSE days to go through them.

Megan said...

That's a great idea, putting all you pictures in one post. You can access them from anywhere with your iphone.
My baby gives the hugs. One single arm wrapped tightly around my neck

I LOVE pictures! I am the "photographer" of most of my friends and family classic shots. Some days I just pic a random file and put it on slide show feature and play my itunes. Instant boost to my day!

Super cute pics! :)

My "got" is my Pug Ernie. He is an awesome listener!

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

Chloe and I both said "Awwwww" when we saw the cute picture of Ellie in her dress.

Patrick Mahoney said...

This almost seems off topic at this point, but my go to is either a nap or the bike.

Gina said...

i totally agree - that's why i majored in photojournalism in college. unposed photos are the best - i especially like the one of you just talking - so natural!

Angie Bishop said...

I love looking at old photos. It really does lift the spirit :)

TRI-james said...

I run really hard and forget the world.

Rae said...

I love photos! I love taking pictures. I take my camera everywhere I go. I love looking back on them and remembering the fun times that were had.

Syl said...

you my friend have a body to DIE for! Good grief ;-).

Love pictures, except when it's my boys baby pictures, those make me cry but i'm a little emotional that way ;-). just shows how quickly they grow and how old I'm getting ;-).
Love today's post
have a great weekend

Caratunk Girl said...

Great shots - photos help.

I turn to the Kennebec River...I grew up fishing and swimming in it, spend most of my adult life guiding whitewater rafting on it...it is home to me.

Scott Keeps Running said...

A plate of chocolate chip cookies is where I go.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

After the bike, I goto a book and just read, let my mind escape into what I am reading

Marlene said...

Aw, what happy photos! I love looking back on old pics and having a laugh (or a cry) over a good memory.

Happy Friday!!!

Rad Runner said...

Most definitely a fabulous invention, hope today and this weekend and the next week and the week after that and so on are all rockin days!

You and your fabulous self make me laugh..

Depending on my situation I look to diffrent things/peeps examples-
The man(my man)
My family (sis/mommy/daddy)
Running
ART (I play with all sorts of medias)

It's great to see the photos that can bring you joy. Typically photos are my way to bring myself to happiness and lately they've been just bringing back the sadness. Hopefully soon they'll be back to being reminders of happiness and good things.
