The Beautiful Build Up

The Beautiful Build Up

Who knew that a photograph like this could spark a post like this? I guess it’s been building up. You know, that my girls are growing up before my eyes. That Julia will be in the FOURTH grade (huh?) and Iris will begin preschool, FIVE DAYS A WEEK. Yes, I am thrilled. Finally time to myself. It’s what I have been asking for. But that doesn’t mean I’m not sad too.

If you want to know how I really feel about it all, check out what emotions blindsided me today when I was posting at Picture This. And grab a tissue.

    What a beautiful photo. Our little ones can truly blow us away with their absolute perfection…and imagine…what was she thinking as she was sitting there? The sun? The evening? About you?
    Thanks, Anne

    My girls love halter tops, too. But lately, when my ten-year-old wears them I have the urge to say, “Whoa, missy – where you think you’re goin in that getup? Go put some clothes on.” Thank God she hasn’t thought of pairing them with Daisy Dukes. Yet.

    I’m just catching up on everyone’s blogs. Glanced quickly and saw your saucy Charlie’s Angels photo from BlogHer. Can’t wait to read your recap…
