Talk about little girls who have some personality… these two cuties give my boys a run for their money!! Their brand new little brother has built-in entertainment for years to come! And boy, do they love that new little man. Here is a peek at a shot of just the sisters, but more including the newest member of the family are coming soon!
I adore a stunning, emotional black and white image. Of course, color is beautiful, but there is something about just the perfect black and white that seems to tell even more of a story than the bright, cheery colors can tell. It has the ability to stir up more inside of the beholder. This image is from a trip we made to one of my husband’s absolute favorite places ever : Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In fact, our youngest is named after this town ;-)! We drove out to a gorgeous lake on this day, but as soon as we shed our clothes to jump in and swim (except for the youngest and I because it was COLD!!!), the sky darkened and it was obvious a storm was coming. This was caught just in the last few moments before we decided we should make our move to safe, dry ground. It is one of my favorites from the whole trip — I love how it almost appears they are walking on water!
Be sure and visit I Heart Faces — there are hundreds of moving black and white images by so many talented photographers that will inspire you, touch you, and even make you giggle!!
We made a trip to the thrift store today to look for an interesting old chair or anything else we couldn’t live without, but came home with these beauties. My daughter is a lover of books, new and old, and I LOVE that!! I was drawn to the Reader’s Digest Best Loved Books because they reminded me of all the Reader’s Digest classics my mom and dad had on their bookshelf. Funny how books can bring so much nostalgia. Nancy Drew is one of my daughter’s favs, and I knew these other classics would make her smile with delight. And, our sweet youngest guy was with us — he has been obsessed with Bibles lately (LOVE that, too!!!), and found a little New Testament… AND it was even his favorite color!!! Score!!
I started praying for this little girl long before I met her. Long before her siblings and parents brought her home. And I was so excited to spend some time with her! We got to have a few brief conversations ;-), and I found out she definitely loves red balloons! Even though I was snapping her sweet, adorable face long after dinner time, she kept on smiling (its possible the red balloon bribe helped…) and never shed a tear. And those dimples… seriously!! Can you tell I had a hard time choosing just a few to share here? I hope I get to share many more conversations with her as she grows up with her new, extremely kind and loving family. Thank you for letting me in on such a special little piece of your life with your new daughter, and for the time, tears, love, and prayers you have and continue to pour into this precious one.
