“Our Days On Earth Are Measured In Weeks”

by Lisa Delgado

We meet each other on Monday at school. It is the 5th grade. We eye each other. A lot.
On Tuesday we fall in love. Deep in love. It is the summer before our senior year.
Wednesday we exchange wedding vows and are given beautiful children to love.
Thursday moves fast. Together we speed down the busy road of diaper changes, first words, first steps, summers the color of sunshine and watermelon. Back to school nights, homework, baseball and music lessons. This road leads us to graduations. And “good-by for now’s”.
On Friday our empty nest is filled up again with beautiful grandchildren to love.
Today is Saturday. It is our 35th year as husband and wife. The day takes us in a new direction, new except that it is just the two of us again, just like on Monday. We are excited. We hope Saturday is a very long day so we can finish things we started and start things we couldn’t.
When we awake on Sunday neither of us will know what the day holds for the other. But we hope with our whole hearts that we can still remember the days we had together. Each and every one of them.


Lisa met Randy in the 5th grade. This March 16th, they will be celebrating 35 years of marriage. Three grown children and two grandsons later – they’ve made it! She came to me wanting to surprise her hubby with some glamorous boudoir photos of herself — she was interested in a “Little Black Book” and some gallery wraps to hang in their bathroom vanity.

Lisa mentioned at the end of her session that she’d always wanted to be a model, growing up. She said that she felt like one that day — from preparing for the session, to outfit, shoes & accessory shopping. Then to the professional hair + make up session, with Ace, and the actual photo shoot — her dream of being a model was fulfilled! She truly felt pampered, glamorous & beautiful! And that’s EXACTLY what our mission is at Torrid Boudoir!

This was an especially amazing experience for me. Lisa is my gorgeous mother! Randy is my lucky dad! I am thrilled to be able to give this gift to my beautiful parents! And I am beyond proud to introduce this stunning woman as my mother!
