New Series: My Favorite Pics of Monica

It’s been great seeing all the feedback and encouragement about how great Monica looks with her “new ‘do”. I know it helps lift her confidence and has made this whole process that much easier. The thing is, just as many of you have commented, she really is gorgeous. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite pictures of my beautiful bride in a series of posts. I tried to choose just one picture to start with but it was impossible so I decided to just go with the flow. If you get these updates in your email, click here to see the pictures on our web site.  Without further ado…
This picture had to be the first in the series of course. We don’t have original jpg computer files of our wedding pics, so this is scanned. The quality is a little degraded but she is still radiant! I remember I was smiling so big when I first saw her walk down the aisle that by the time it was all over my cheeks ached.

A little secret about Monica is that her eyes are so blue, that any picture taken with a flash comes out with a major “red eye” problem. Our photo management software has a red eye remover that turns everything red to black and it just doesn’t do her justice.

I always loved having Monica there ready to celebrate with me after a show. It made me feel like that much more of a “star” knowing that after the show I would have this beautiful girl at my side. We had a lot of fun dressing up for the shows, and it was amazing to see Monica transform into her evening wear. Sol and Monica in Front of a Marquee After a Gig
Not only is her smile perfect in this picture, but I was so proud of her that I had to include this one. This is a picture of Monica accepting her Hall of Fame award at Simpson University for her volleyball achievements there. Simpson decided to begin a Hall of Fame to honor some of their outstanding athletes who were also leaders and displayed great character, and Monica was the first ever Simpson Hall of Fame inductee! It was quite an honor and she had good reason to be smiling so big.

It was fun for me to look through some of our old pictures and dig these up. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do as I dig up more in future posts.

    WOW!! What beautiful pics!! Monica, your smile is gorgeous! Both you and Sol are photogenic! Even when you had to shave your hair off, your face just glowed with beauty. Most of us would not look that nice w/o hair!! I had no idea what an acomplished volleyball player you are! CONGRATULATIONS on your induction into the hall of fame at Simpson! Did you put pics on the website of your new do? I missed them if you did. I’m really glad that you found something that you feel confident and pretty wearing. We’re continuing to pray for you. Thanks for keeping the updates coming. Love Dave & Kathy
