Once again, I’m joining in with the gorgeous Heledd over at Running in Lavender and her new linky, My Captured Moment. The idea is simply to share photographs that have captured a special moment in time. Pictures that you treasure and want to remember.

My Captured Moment – Back when it all began

My Captured Moment 2 _15.01.2015

This moment was captured by Mr H. He had just bought a second hand camera and was playing with the different settings. I was his model for the evening.

It was our second or third date. We had just been to Wagamama in Leicester Square. (It was my first experience of Wagamama.)

It was february and it was freezing.Β  We went into a coffee shop to warm up. I ordered a hot chocolate and Mr H had a tea.

It was almost 11 years ago. I was still Miss S. I was 25 and dating a man who would later become my husband and the father of my little girl. I had so much fun ahead of me.

Hugs

Mrs H

      Thank you for your lovely comment. That is so kind of you to say that I haven’t changed a bit. As that is over 11 years ago I would love to think that were true. I love looking at this photo and thinking of all the fun times we had ahead of us. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    What a lovely photo. I just love that you know exactly the moment it was taken and can tell us exactly what was happening. I’m like that with music tracks. Thanks for sharing such a lovely moment x

      Thank you for your comment. I am surprised that I can remember so much about that night. Although writing this post did start a discussion with Mr H about whether it was a cold night in January or February. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

      Ahhhh schucks… lovely… you’ll make me blush. I think that the camera likes the way I hold my face when I am slurping hot chocolate. Maybe I need to do that in every photograph from now on. Thanks for commenting lovely. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

      Ha ha! I have never thought of myself as looking French. I always get told that I am an English rose. It is probably the soft focusing. Thanks for your lovely comment. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    I don’t know why but this feels like a picture that could be in a French lifestyle magazine!

      Ha ha… Jenna… you seemed to have inspired a theme of French comments on my blog. I think it is the smokey and misty quality of the photograph. Thanks for commenting lovely. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
