Show Me...A View...

So many of you dug deep for yesterday's post. The pictures were great but I really enjoyed reading the stories behind the pictures. We're in the home stretch here. I love that so many of you have been participating the whole way through.

Day 5 - Show Me...your favorite view from anywhere in your home

This was easy. Easy to think of. I was a little worried capturing the image for obvious reasons. Taken just a few hours ago, this is a view that just melts my heart. Our routine at bedtime usually has Julianne holding Lily as we say our prayers. Julianne was at choir tonight so it was just Lily and me. We said our prayers, we gave kisses, and then she hugged me. But this time she hugged me with her face on my left and then gave a second, unexpected hug, on my right. Delightfully I exclaimed, "Oh I get a hug on both sides tonight!" She looked at me and repeated, "Both sides" with the biggest smile. I told her I loved her and without me asking, her eyes caught mine as she said, "I love you, Daddy."

Sleep well baby girl.



Come back tomorrow to Show Me...something that is relaxing to you! For all the details for tomorrow and the rest of the week, click here.

What a sweet and precious shot, Robert. Nothing like watching them sleep.

I went out of the box today - posted a slide show cause I had to many pix. No cool effects or angles, particularly, but they all support my favorite view. :D
