Say Cheese

Now that I've crossed "attend an outdoor concert" off of my summer to-do list, it's time to move on to the next item: photo booth session. I've always loved the nostalgia associated with photo booths. It's a great way to be silly and instantly get a cute black & white strip of memories as a souvenir. I love the simplicity behind them, and I've often thought of how much fun it would be to do a photo booth album instead of a traditional guest book at a wedding. There's a great website that lists locations of photo booths all around the world and even showcases some amazing art.

When I think of photo booths, I'm always reminded of the movie Beaches (total tear-jerker) with Bette Midler and the girl who played Blossom (Mayim Bialik). Anyway, there's a scene on the boardwalk where the two girls go into a photo booth and print out pictures to remember the summer they met. Too cute! I'm hoping to go on a photo booth adventure with Marc and take funny-faced shots to stick on my bedroom mirror. Sounds fun, right?!
