Treasured, Together

This weekend we took a little car trip to see family and celebrate my birthday. Nothing like scads of people who love you, packages to open, and meals served ... to make a birthday nothing short of spectacular.


I also had the distinct honor of taking some family photos. It's not always often to have loved ones gathered together and willing to submit to my snapping and clicking, so I was most delighted. Naturally, we took plenty all clustered together trying to smile simultaneously and not look as awkward as we all felt. You gotta' have some of those! But then. There were the little moments. The kind that represent the un-posed part of family life.
The kind that are, simply ... treasures.

  6. Happy Birthday Anna! Hope your day was filled with joy. Your beautiful pictures gave me a lump in my throat. This week is the 2nd anniversary of my sweet grandma going home to be with Jesus. I remember her wrinkled hands so vividly. Those pictures brought back a flood of memories.
