I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the Fall season so far. Here in Tx we are still experiencing 80+ degree weather, but that's better than 110 degree weather. I will take what I can get. We are hoping for a real Fall, and Winter season this year. We were cheated out of the luxury of the cold weather last year. Which left us with an overwhelming amount of bugs, and other critters.
I am so excited about sweaters, boots, Fall candles, hot chocolate, chilli, and everything related to the season. I am happy to sit in the house more days than not under a warm blanket, in some comfy sweats, scrapping, and scrapping,lol.
This Fall I will be more intentional about taking more images of my children. Last year I failed miserably in that area. It's hard to take as many pictures of your family when your photographing everyone else's.
I have had this picture of Bailey for a while now. I've wanted to scrap it for so long, but it felt like I could never find the right papers and design for it. Finally, My Minds Eye came along :) and created the "Sweetest Thing" collection. Allowing me to finally create a page for this sweet image of my baby girl.
A little history about this photo. It was taken right at the beginning of Fall 2010. This was about the time Bailey started getting really sick throwing up mysteriously. She had been in and out of the ER and doctors offices, test after test, with doctors trying to determine what was causing her to become so sick. With each visit we would be left in the dark, wondering what was making our sweet baby so ill. On this particular day I had planned to take her out and photograph her for Fall. And out of no where she started to fall ill. I pray I never forget what she said to me, "Mom I want to take pictures". I said Bailey it's cold outside and your not feeling well. We will try another day. She insisted "No Mommy I want too". So we pulled the car over and took maybe 10 frames before she became too weak to continue. This is one of the photos I got that day. It's a wonderful reminder of how brave she was, and is.
Thanks for stopping by. Chat with you soon.
