One Tween for Two Themes

Since I'm totally obsessed with textures, I was thrilled that Theme Thursday at The Land of Ka was, what else, textures. Yay! And let me tell you, she's posted a great tutorial on the subject over there too.

And then of course I read Karen's Love Thursday post at Shutter Sisters and it stirred up so much motherly love within me that I couldn't resist sharing a recent shot of my oldest daughter for Love Thursday. And I thought I'd give it a little extra love and attention with one of NinianLifs textures. NinianLifs got some incredible stuff to play with.

So, as Karen's story runs through my head, I offer this image of my blossoming tween and I am recalling a day back when she was 18 months old when for a split second I thought I might lose her (long, exhausting story). That memory alone is all it takes to flood me with gratitude, appreciation, joy, and love love love for her and everything her independent adolescent attitude can dish up.



Just a little dose of motherhood perspective and it's all good. It's all good.

Oh I relate to you on the TWEEN part ... I love looking at the old pictures from before she argued till she was blue in the face.

What a lovely picture!

I love that Tracey! Great shot and the texture adds so much to it. Thanks for that link, too. I will have to check it out.

I think you told that story over at Picture This...she got something in her eye that caused her to go into shock. Scary stuff. :(

Your photos never let me down, they are always so amazing whether in their simplicity or complex; they are always striking.

Perfect use of texture.
