This post is a part of the Behind the Scenes link up where we show you photos – and tell the real story behind them.
It was a Friday night in November 2011. I had been through a long commute to and from work and was looking forward to a night out with the girls…and the guys too. We normally try to get together and celebrate our birthdays since we are all Scorpios and November is our season. We had a great table (no easy feat, this place gets packed) and we had munched on some tasty treats while hitting up the hookah. It wasn’t long before we were all laughing, talking, and dancing to the live music. This night was one of the best time’s I’ve had at that lounge.
This picture was taken by my girl Jackie’s husband who was the self-appointed photographer during our Scorpio’s night out. His favorite shots are those that you aren’t expecting. The ones that catch you off-guard in the middle of something you may not have wanted anyone to see. He reveled in the joy every time he snapped one of these completely candid shots and would yell “Got ya!” when he succeeded in getting his picture.
Girl, You Know That’s Right
I don’t have a clue what I was saying to Jackie (pictured above with me) but it must have been funny judging by the laughter she is in the middle of. I look like I was topping off a just finished sentence with “girl, you know that’s right.” Lol. For some reason I absolutely love this picture. Maybe it’s the way it captures a moment in our friendship. Or perhaps it’s the joy I remember from the night when I look at this completely candid shot. One thing I appreciate about this picture is how it depicts one of my favorite things to do with my BFF: Talk her ear off!
I want to hear from you!
