I think I am probably going to get the bad mother/mother-in-law award here, BUT in my defense, I've always loved this photo.
(bad mom award because they specifically said, don't show our feet. I think my son must have said that, because he had shorts on with his graduation gown. He didn't wear shorts for the ceremony tho. This was afterwards when I was forcing them to go outside so I could take their picture)
This is my son and daughter in law last May. They had just finished 7 years of college and grad-school....their whole married life together (they were married right out of high school, which I normally wouldn't recommend, but, 7 years and 4 degrees later...I would never tell anyone they were too young!
This picture was taken right after the graduation week was over and behind the photographer (me) was a Budget truck filled with all their lives possessions and the start of their future.
I think they were filled with a sense of accomplishment, and pride and nervousness for what lie ahead: finding jobs, a home, etc.
So, that's what I see when I look at this picture. Their excitement and nervousness and hope all rolled up into one.
This was taken on the Yale Campus in New Haven, CT. (I miss New Haven SO MUCH!.....and I only visited there, I didn't live there)
