my mini-me and me
1) We are all dressed up in red, white, and blue watching a summertime parade. I think this scenario might be what my dreams are made of. We get to do it all over again in just over a week, and I cannot wait!
2) The simple fact that this is a picture of me and my daughter! That's right, my daughter!
3) Her Minnie Mouse Tattoo
4) So many people tell me that she looks like me, and I sort of get it, but not really. Until I look at this picture, and I can't help but agree. I mean look! We have the same chin, the dimples, the smile, our hair color looks about the same, our noses could be twins, and our eyes. Twinsies, I tell you!
5) This stage of life can be hard. It's demanding. It's often thankless. I am constantly wondering if I'm doing it all wrong. I find myself thinking about the days before we had any kids, or when we only had the twins. Sometimes I look to the future and wonder what it will be like when I no longer have to multitask every. single. thing I do. But then I look at that smile on my face and I remember what a truly HAPPY time of life this really is. There is just so much happiness. And I'm happy that Bart captured it in this photo.
6) Also, the sunshine!
