I had a picture in my mind.
This usually doesn't work out the way my mind sees it when I try to make it happen with my camera.
Sometimes it does.
Mostly it doesn't.
Today it did.
14 and half years ago today, my whole world changed.
I became a Mom.
And this precious girl became a little bit of me, only much better... right before my eyes.
I took a picture I had in my mind...and I knew the moment I took it, I'd love it forever.
only it makes me wanta cry because she's just so wonderful & amazing & fabulous & smart & loving & each thing I ever hoped that day when she entered the world.
and as she takes these next couple weeks to finish up middle school & prepare to graduate & head off to high school I more than ever want to capture where she's at.
at all that she is becoming.
I love you.
