When God throws you a little Indian Summer in November, you take it! And take it we did...by enjoying some good 'ol fashion fun with sidewalk chalk. Heavenly. Couldn't think of a better way to spend my afternoon.
As I soak up every minute of these moments, there is something my camera finds. The images I start to capture begin to tell a story.
A story of a beautiful blond sweetheart. Her name is Emma Lillie. She was born with such a gentle spirit which she still showcases in her sweet, innocent, day to day actions. She has a gift of design. She enjoys sitting, drawing, creating. Quietly she concentrates on every single stroke of the chalk. A thinker. An artist.
The story continues with another beautiful blond. Her name is Hope Kaylynn. She looks likes the other blond, both sharing the same sparkling blue eyes and wispy hair. However with her there is no sitting. There is no quiet. She's up and moving. She has a spirit about her, a spirit that is free and far from calm. Busy. Curious. Very very busy and curious.
Who knew an afternoon with sidewalk chalk could explain so much. Two girls sharing the same genes...sharing the same blue eyes, blond hair, dimples and grin. Personalities different as different could be. No doubt in my mind that for anyone who may not know my girls personally, can easily grip what life is like with each of them just by the following picture.
What a beautiful beautiful day. It never seizes to amaze me the joy having daughters brings to my life. Not every minute of every day is a basket of roses, but the moments when it is....are-freakin'-awesome.
To my little artist and little curious George,
I love you to the moon and back...and back...and back....and back again. xoThis story proudly brought to by:
