elsa...our peonies are practically the size of your head! almost collapsing under the summer rain.
so how could i refuse your request to pick a few this morning?

(i am quite blown away that we are at the half way point of this project. how about you?)

"a portrait of my child...once a week...every week in 2013"
linking up with jodi (and many others) for this project.

i really loved these stripey portraits from last week. i am at that point too of catching a glimpse in to the future on occasion of my girl as a grown up...it seems to only happen in the snapshot second that a camera can capture...a little bit heartbreaking all the same!
