Love Project - Heidi

After the shooting in Orlando in June, I felt very compelled to put something positive out into the world. What I came up with was something I call the Love Project. I give someone 3 prompts to choose from (all relating to love), they answer the prompt, and I photograph them (with b&w film) while the answer. So far, this has been an incredible experience of love and the emotions it evokes. This morning I learned that today is the International Day of Peace, so today seems like the best time to start sharing the Love Project. Come back every week for a new story of love.

I met Andy in February of 2003.  We spent a lot of time together over the next few months until we started dating late that spring.  I think I was likely falling in love with him before we were even dating.  We lived only 3 blocks apart (he helped me move into my houseboat!!) and would go on walks with my brand new puppy every night along the water.  It was easy & simple & perfect.

Once we started dating, I knew in about 2 weeks I was going to marry him.  I will admit to freaking out about that part (and will leave out the exact language I used :) )  But I was absolutely positive!! I kept thinking "you're not supposed to know that so soon!" and "how on earth are you so sure?" but I just knew.  And exactly a year later we were engaged.

Next week we'll be celebrating our 11th anniversary.  We are in so many ways so very different, but I've always known I would spend the rest of my life with him.  I always say that my entire world just fell into place that summer.  Life won't ever be that easy, or simple, or as light with responsibilities - but it was pure magic!
