17 August 2010

together.

a couple thursdays back, we spent an evening in the weedy green of our front yard celebrating birthdays with the hubby's family.

they are a rowdy and big-hearted bunch, and i love that they are mine.

driveway hoops.

razor.

little e.

elle.

flimsee.

buckets of fun.

focus.

k&e.

birthday scooters.

aunt kristin smoked everyone.

there's something about late summer light on the faces of people i adore that hints of heaven, of things to come. things yet unseen, but so warmly familiar to my reaching soul.

I love that I know that feeling you're describing...that little glimpse of heaven. Sweet balm to the soul, moments like those.

I especially love Elle's choice of attire. Leopard print with the flowers. The brown in both fabrics completely ties it all together.

Reminds me of a certain little one that lives in my house...
