Child's Play

To be a child....

Pippa's Song

The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven -
All's right with the world!

~Robert Browning

Sweet Hadley


Sir Luke

We had a glorious day on Sunday visiting with Mamie, Aunt Jan, Uncle Jeff, my cousin Sam and his beautiful wife Lauren, their two little girls Hadley and Clara, my cousin Taylor and his beautiful wife Rachel and their three children, Henry, Luke and Maggie........and my Dad. These are the moments in life that I truly treasure, as family is by far the most important thing in my life to me.

The kids had so much fun, and Emma Sage loved having a little tag-along, as Hadley thought she was just such a fun cousin to follow and play with [it melted my heart to see her looking up to Emma Sage] and I was able to take advantage of the beautiful day and lighting and the kids playing in and around the gardens to capture some adore pictures [as you see above]

Mamie has been feeling so much better than she had a month ago, and we are so thankful for that. I was able to help my Aunt Jan [who I know I wandred around following as a little girl and looked up to....it is so wonderful to see the circle come around] garden and Mamie was able to sit on the deck and watch us........

Simple, quiet moments of life.......the ones you tuck into your heart and treasure.
