Pieces of My Heart

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”


The photos below are proof of that Elizabeth Stone quote above.  Samantha is the best part of me.  My heart.  She has shown me exactly what being a mother is and should be all about.

So true. She is suddenly looking so mature! Sniff...

Your almost 6 year old is looking like such a little lady these days. There is such an air of confidence and conviction to take on the world for all that it is worth and Sammi seems to not miss a moment of it ... and neither do you. And that is the key as parents. To embrace the little moments. Cherish the mundane. To acknowledge that life is fleeting and therefore should be savored and lived and most of all, loved.

Pictures, as always, magnificent.
