I Heart Faces/ Hands....

Oh how I LOVE this challenge! This one took a lot of time narrowing down to my final choice as I had A TON! But this is the one I chose and it is a picture of my sister (aka BEST FRIEND) and her husband right before she gave birth to her first child, her BEAUTIFUL baby girl! Her husband was a great support the whole labor and delivery. I was blessed to be able to witness their love for each other and their extreme love of their brand new beautiful soon coming baby girl! She was delivered about 30+ min after this photo was taken! Happy, healthy and full of her momma's amazing spirit!!! I LOVE MY NIECE and am glad to be able to enter this photo for all to see!

To CORA with LOVE!

I heart Faces/ WHITE

I heart faces' new contest was for the theme "White"! Two things come to mind when I think of white: SNOW and WEDDING DRESSES! I have great pictures of my son in the snow, but for some reason I am way more drawn to enter this photo instead!

So here is my entry, the beautiful bride in her white dress, SO in love with the man standing behind her, ready to spend the rest of her life with him, to be his wife! I have looked at weddings in such a new light after my own wedding to my high school sweetheart back in 2007, and second to having a child, it is one of life's greatest moments!!
