It Starts With Us- My First Mission

Go here to see my post on joining It Starts With Us.

The first mission I received was this:

Give someone a picture that you know they'll enjoy.

I was excited about this one. I knew this would be really easy for me, since we just got married and had really great professional pictures of some of our friends.

How I accomplished the mission:

I found professional pictures of 4 couples that came to our wedding and sent them to the couples through email.

Response/reaction to mission:

I knew that I would love to receive a professional picture of the NewlyHusband and I from someone, so I figured others would too. I got really great responses, such as "Thank you for thinking of us." "That was so sweet. "I love the picture." It made me feel good that something so small and easy to do put a smile on someone's face.

It also gave me the idea to frame some of the professional picures we have of my aunt and uncle, grandma and grandpa, etc and give them as Christmas gifts. A cheap, personal gift, that I think they will love.

So join in if you'd like. Give a picture to someone that you know they'll enjoy. It's quick, it's easy, and it may just brighten someone's day.


  1. I really love the format here - very cool. Now following. :)

  2. What a fantastic idea! Everyone loves a PROFESSIONAL photo. It just makes you feel special ;-)

  3. Aw! Yay! You're so sweet! We're doing that exact same thing for our grandparents for Christmas. Except we're doing some beach pics!

  4. Oh that is such a great idea!! I have always wanted copies of the professional pics people take of me at weddings, and never get to see them!
