She's beautiful Elk. Time does slip away from us too fast. We realized that yesterday when some friends who were in town for Easter came by to visit. Life changes everyday.

It's heart wrenching. Wonderfully illustrated with the beautiful portrait.

S. Etole said...

such anticipation in those lovely eyes ...

Meri said...

That was such a precious time -- sharing the possibilities and excitement. And by the way, I keep thinking of you because here, along the Pacific coast, I keep seeing signs that say "ELK, next two miles." I've got to find a place to pull off so I can take a photo without getting run over.

amelia said...

Gayle said...

elk, I love, love, love this! The clock images are amazing and the image of your beautiful girl and Sam is too cute! This also brought a tear to my eye. Oh, yes, time is flying by.

lovely girl!

kendalee said...

I don't have any of my own but I measure the time against the young loved ones that are family of my heart and it sometimes scares me witless how quickly they have grown (and what that means for my time here). But how amazing too to witness that life unfolding!

The beauty inside her shines out of the beauty she is on the outside - that's a remarkable combination and a testament to you too for raising a good 'un... Congrats to you both! :)

Caroline said...

Oh man, I can really relate to this. How quickly the time goes...

That first image...stunning. Your daughter...lovely. The new season in your life...emotional, for sure.

Kellee said...

My sister, ten years my junior, has just settled on her university, complete with full ride scholarship. It is terrifying to me!! She's 6'3" now, five minutes ago she was a little 5-year-old punkjob that I was tossing in the air and driving to kindergarten. How does that happen??

Kath said...

I just have to say, "Hi Sam!" (really, I want to say, "Who's a good boy, eh, eh? Who's the prettiest puppy???" in some sort of weird baby talk/puppy talk voice) The photos are fantastic

Jeanne Klaver said...

She is stunning! Your photos of time...oh my! I does pass so swiftly.
