Eden's dress: Old Navy $1.00
My dress: Coldwater Creek $4.99
Reef's Pants: Old Navy $3.99
I make banana muffins Saturday night, so come Sunday morning we have something quick to grab while running off to church. Please don't get the idea the act of planning ahead actually gets us to church on time. No, we are usually still a few minutes late anyway.
Here's a photo of Eden last Sunday morning. I can't seem to get a photo of her without a banana muffin.
Eden's dress: The Children's Place $1.00
I had Eden pose for some photographs with my mom.
I found her little angelic dress while thrifting for $2.99. I couldn't have found a better dress full price!
Lately, I've been spending long summer days with my mom as she tells me about her childhood in Tennessee. I've been to her home many times and remember the trees and breeze while sitting on the front porch swing. A few nights ago, I had a dream that my mom was sitting on some steps near a front porch with Eden running up the walk way toward her. This image was so stunning and so real, I had to recreate the scene.
This morning, it was cloudy and felt like Tennessee weather. I knew what I needed to do. I drove around the historic areas of Mesa, looking for an older home with a beautiful front porch. It took about 10 minutes to find it. Then, I knocked on the door and asked the homeowner if I could take some photos. She graciously said yes.
Do you see why I had to capture the love I felt?
I'm sandwiched between two angels;
my mother on one end
and my daughter on the other.
