a week ago today ~

at the beach, originally uploaded by homebirthmama.

I love everything about this photo, the different color of blues encircling the picture, the way my daughter is looking down, the grains of sand on her neck, the way the wind is caught in her hair. Here of late, I get lucky with a shot like this, it says so many things and captures exactly how I see her, a joyful soul enjoying the last days of summer. She has no idea that the end of summer is here, that soon we’ll be packing up our summer clothes in the attic and putting our fall clothes into our dressers and exchanging our sandals for warmer socks and shoes. It will all happen like baby steps for her, she will hardly notice until the next season fully arrives with colorful fallen leaves.
