After a relatively painless family photo shoot, using my tripod and self-timer, Nora finally was unleashed to climb logs, play, and explore. I shot this when she climbed up high on a fallen tree and she flashed me her sweet smile. Love…
Following Yelp reviews, we stumbled upon this little bakery with a tiny dining room in the back allowing a full view of glass blowers at work. It was fascinating and fun for both my daughter and I. And, it’s free, although we grabbed a bite and chai at the cafe. Such a fun find!
My daughter has been wanting to wear glasses, although she has eagle-eye vision, so she jumped on board with the latest trend to wear clear, non-prescription glasses. So, she grabbed the Harry Potter book she’s reading, I put some chopsticks in her hair, and she willingly modeled for this shot. I have to admit, I absolutely LOVE this look!
I thought it was so sweet when Nora handed me an envelope labeled “To: Mom, Love: Nora” in a giant red heart. Then inside was this sweet drawing of owls, which she knows I love. It’s not my birthday. There was no occasion to prompt this act of kindness. She just felt like drawing it for me. When being a mom feels like a never-ending thankless job, these simple gestures mean so much. Love this…love her! 🙂
