52 Fridays – Week 6 {Letting Go of Perfect} & February 10 on 10

This week my Friday post and 10 on 10 post are falling on the same day so I am combining them into one post.  The 52 Fridays theme this week is “Letting Go of Perfect” and completely ties in with my 10 on 10.  One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to learn how to use my flash (I’ve had it for several years…).  I’ve been reading, studying, and taking workshops trying to become more proficient with it.  Here are 10 pictures from my sister’s wedding this past weekend that are less than perfect but she loves anyway.  Before this past month I wouldn’t have even tried to take pictures in a dimly lit house at 7:00 at night.  Here’s to celebrating progress and letting go of perfection.
