A small gesture

It's Lisa's birthday today. Actually, it'll have been yesterday when I put this post up. I'm terrible at grand gestures, so we're spending it at home; taking a break from shooting or processing or scouting. She's actually sitting across from me and reading Kinfolk in our living room as I type this. Every now and again I can't help but look at her and think about how much I love her and I just get lost in it. She just looked up at me and smiled and asked if I wanted a cup of tea. That's what she does. She can't help but be so giving and caring, even when it's her birthday and I shouldn't leave her wanting for anything. I don't deserve her.

I find myself doing it at weddings too. A groom will say something particularly wonderful about his new wife; I'll lower my camera, look over and she'll look back at me at the same moment and just smile. That smile.
