By the Book {I Heart Faces}

When I saw this photo challenge "by the book" I immediately thought about the pictures I took the day of Lily's dedication at church.

When I got home that day, I took her out back and brought the Bible she was given along with the Bible Michael received the day he was dedicated as a little boy.  

I also grabbed my Mimi's mink shawl to keep her warm because it was a little chilly outside! 


I know my Mimi would have LOVED Lily.  I tell Lily often about the little things that my grandmother did to make me feel special.  It was bittersweet seeing her wear this special shawl that belonged to my grandmother.  


I wish she were still here but I can only imagine that she is looking down from heaven filled with much joy knowing Lily is in our lives.    


I love the sweet expression on her face and the way she was completely enthralled with "reading" the Bible.


It is actually upside down as she is reading it but that is one of the things I love about this shot.
