It feels great to get back into the blogging world! Especially starting with a Mother / Daughter style post which is becoming one of my favorite things to do with my daughter Zoe. Not only do we have fun getting dressed up, but we are also capturing moments in time that we can one day look back at together. It is such a remarkable experience sharing little moments like “getting dressed” with my teenage daughter. And also seeing how much she’s grown just in the last year, especially in character; she has such a sweet and humble one that I pray will continue through adult hood.
The backdrop is one of my favorite canyons to hike in the summer called Baily Canyon. I feel so lucky just having it a couple of blocks away. Just being in the midst of it brought out so many senses. We could smell sage and eucalyptus in the air. The tree trucks look like a work of abstract art. The sun rays felt so good on the skin and all the beautiful earth tone colors were eye-popping. We were excited to see and snap a photo of a hawk circling in the air, it was so graceful and majestic. Surrounded by a beautifully created world.
