Oh my heart.
The beauty of film is that you don't always know exactly what you're going to get. Depending on who develops the film, or what camera settings have gone askew, there is always a chance that what you saw and what you get aren't one in the same. This part, I love (accidental double exposures included). You wait and wait, and no matter what, everything on that strip of film is a stamp in time. This came back to me last week. It was aqua. And aqua just happens to be my favorite color.
The Christmas season is officially over for us today with the Epiphany. Tomorrow, I'll start putting away Christmas decorations as I indulge in the last sweet minutes of my girls' holiday vacation. It was warm, it was bright; it was full of everything I could ever want. Thank God.
For now, put away the mistletoe. Keep the kisses. Bisous, L
On weekends when she has coffee with her great-grandpa (a splash of coffee in a cup of warm milk), she saves half for me. This happens without fail. No matter where I am or what I'm doing, she sets it on the nearest side table or puts it in my hand. "Here Mommy, this is for you." I know she wants to finish it, but she's always thinking of someone else. That's the heart of my Natalia. Sweet. Kind. Precious. We've been blessed with another birthday, and it feels so good. My baby is seven. Oh yes, life is grand.
