She's Got Legs

My Best Shot Monday is an ode to my tiny dancer. This photo captures her as the rogue ballerina that she truly is. Part princess, part tomboy, 100% herself.



The vibrant color she brings to our family takes my breath away; sometimes leaving me exhausted, sometimes leaving me simply overwhelmed with gratitude.

Do you have something to share that makes your heart skip a beat?

Hey Mamas, Shutter Sisters is co-sponsoring another Mama Focus Contest just in time for Mother's Day. Be sure to visit Shutter Sisters on Tuesday (whoops, I meant Wednesday) for the scoop. Or if you're too eager to wait, just visit Mamazine right now for all the details.

Had to fix a typo, can't stand those.

We just got back from a weekend in Mexico. The images I saw made my heart skip a beat, but not necessarily in a good way.

Tracey, what a great way to paint a picture with words "the vibrant color she brings to our family takes my breath away..." Awesome.

Those legs do look like they can dance!

My heart did skip a beat with my BSM:

Rogue ballerina indeed! I love the perspective!

Here's my shot from last week. The apple tree in bloom was breathtaking, but my son's reaction was even better!

Golightly said...

I love her little legs! What a great picture! I stopped by last night and then was inspired to add to my post a picture I took of Harrison's little legs at the zoo on Thursday.

Here's mine.

Vered said...

Tracey: I returned from Mexico yesterday, so absorbed in what I saw there, and so anxious to tell everyone about it, that I completely forgot to say how I like your image!

I often complain that the blogging world is a place where everyone talks and no one listens. I guess I just proved my own point. (Blush).

Anyway, love your photo. It's adorable. And also, thank you for Best Shot Monday! I'm normally a words-person, not so much into images, but this inspires me to look at the world with different eyes. Sometimes, a picture IS worth a thousand words.

Anna said...

What a sweet shot of your ballerina!

Here's my unconventional BSM this week, my photo shoot at Real Simple!

My picture this week isn't a technically breathtaking shot, but it does show one of the best things about where we live.

Love those legs!!! Zoe needs to get some funkier dance wear... it would definitely be more her.
