I’ve been going through my parents’ slide collection and finding some real gems. This photo was taken by my dad at the Pritania on the first day of my parents’ honeymoon. My parents met, were married and moved to Liberia (West Africa) from Beirut (Lebanon) within a single month. My mom says she knew she was going to marry my dad the moment she heard someone say his name (and I will assure you that my mom is by no means a romantic).

I love this photo of my mom – her dress, her hair, the light, the shadows. I like looking at her in this photo and thinking of all the ways that life can change so quickly.
