The Chef
{my husband is going to kill me for posting this picture}


He hates to get his picture taken but I made him pose the other day while I was practicing with my new camera.  I always have to swear a hundred times that it's just for practice and I'll delete the images.
The entire time photographing his chef-skills for this post he kept reminding me to edit him out.
Oh shy boy, you're in it now!
