Drama {in black & white}

I Heart Faces

wants some drama this week-

via your black and white photo that is.

I hope this fits the bill!

sophia dramatic black and white LG_I_Heart_Faces[3] Here is a little joke about a drama free marriage which I found here:

A couple was celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. 

At the party, everybody wanted to know how they managed to stay married so long in this day and age.

The husband responded “When we were first married, we came to an agreement.

I would make all the major decisions, and my wife would make all the minor decisions.”

“But do you know what I just realized?”

“In 60 years of marriage I don’t think we have never needed to make a major decision.”

Hope your week is drama free.

How many years have you been married?

Love your 'drama' picture... Funny-I did my post today in b/w and it was 'drama' over here...
I have been married for 13.5 years...and love most of the minutes! :)
I am going to email my hubby your story-very funny, and sweet-

Love Letters To China said...

Will be celebrating 10 yrs in November.

Love the story.... put a smile on my face. Needed that today! Thanks!

Sarah said...

Love it! Love your picture, love the story. Love it!

Marc and I celebrate our 10 year anniversary this September. What about you?

Heather @ Gerber Days said...

That is an adorable picture and post! I have been married almost 5 years, and we haven't really had to make any major decisions either! ;)

Busy Bee Suz said...

What a great photo...she is sweet!!!! Are the railings considered props??? :)

almost 19 years for us. If we make it to May that is.

lifebythecreek said...

Oh, she looks like she could create some SERIOUS drama! I love the way I Heart Faces is teaching us to build on the things we've learned; once you learn to shoot from a different angle, it helps in setting the dramatic scene, doesn't it? And I love the joke, too (or WAS it a joke? Sounds real to me....). My goodness, we're almost to April, which means that we'll be married 18 years in just a couple of weeks! Wooo hooo....

Mad Woman said...

Love that joke! We're coming up on 8 years of marriage. Not all of it smooth going.

Gorgeous picture!

Kristi said...

Such a cute picture! Love the joke about marriage. My husband and I just celebrated 8 years newlyweds still.... His grandparents just celebrated 70 in December, they still hold hands and kiss and everything. :)

Becky @ The Shea Family said...

Great picture! Thanks for the sweet comment :) Its a hard life in the military but so worth it, its always so nice to know we have support from people like you, and you are not afraid to tell us that we are supported! Truly means alot! ohh by the way we have been married for almost 10 years.
