I’m tired and indecisive this evening, so you get two interpretations of this theme. The first is this one:
It’s my daughter, Rebecca, at her sister’s bridal shower. A couple of months after this photo was taken, her boyfriend proposed, and now she’s poised to be the next bride in our family. Perhaps she’ll be carried over a threshold shortly after that. (But that’s a pretty old custom; maybe no one does that any more.) Here’s another go:
Wow. Amazing post! 🙂
I love all your interpretations of a word packed with symbolism.
Thanks, Naomi. Can’t wait to see yours!
Two very different takes on the theme 🙂
Like it a LOT!
PS – carrying over threshold is not “old” – we did it when we got married 5 and a half years ago! But then again, people do call us old souls sometimes 🙂
I like the old traditions, myself. Maybe that’s why I work at Old World Wisconsin?
keep on keepin on 🙂 Q
And Growin’ On…statis can be boring. 😉
I vote for the second one; more mysterious 😉
I agree with you. The first was more of a no-brainer.
The second image is a journey unto itself. It conjures the unknown, which fits so well into a new passage in life. Well imagined and well stated.
Thanks, Sally. Yes, I like the depth of that one very much.
I’ve carried Mrs Shpics over every new threshold we’ve found ourselves living in since marriage 14 years ago….
It’s getting harder. 😦
I can’t even blame her, she’s 6 pounds lighter now…. I might just have to give up on all of the good old fashioned romance…..That or buy a truss.
Or maybe she’ll carry you next time?
Sadly I haven’t been getting lighter over the passing years….Though she might have managed it during our courtship, (in fact there was one memorable moment at a roadside hotel where, due to a hopefully unfeigned enthusiasm, I believe she actually did), it would I’m afraid be well beyond her now.
You two are a class act 😉
Beautiful daughter…extraordinarily poetic 2nd shot!
Thank you! See, I do like them both, hence the indecision.
A fully packed post-lovely daughter, terrific thresholds and adventures to come!
Thanks, Elena, and welcome back!
