She's 6

Today was her Birthday, and in between the present opening, and cupcake eating, and mini piñata swinging, I put my old 50 1.4 lens on my camera and took some pictures. 

And it makes the sting of them growing up so dang fast a little bit more bearable. Because now I know I won't forget her little white eyelashes, and her nose dusted with freckles, and her little braids falling on her shoulders. And I know, years from now, I will be able to say, without hesitation, that I took the time to stop and notice and absolutely adore what makes her, her. 

So grateful for days like today...
