Sunday Snapshot {Sprinkles of my grandmother's love}

BLOG serious face yellow dress

A few weeks ago I took Lily to a horse stable near our home while the boys were gone.

I love the way her hair is backlit and the string is wrapped around her little finger. 
 The only thing missing is my grandmother's pin.

This broach is one that my Mimi made when I was growing up.

My grandmother had an apartment in our basement growing up so we were able to spend a lot of time together.

I have fond memories going down to her craft room and watching her create.

When I found this particular pin in the box my mom gave me, I knew I had to put it with this yellow dress.

My only wish is that she could have met Lily.

Much of who I am today is a reflection of my Mimi.

Seeing Lily wear this pin was like a sprinkle of her love falling down on us that afternoon.

...a perfect addition to the beautiful light that filled every frame.  

BLOG walking toward bell

This was one of the first pictures I took when we got there. 

 Lily was headed straight for the old bell to see what it was.

 Love the pop of red from her sunglasses that she insisted on wearing as she is bending down to get a good look at the bell.

After viewing the stables we headed over to the fence where the sun was starting to set.

This is when I changed out her headband..looking back I would do it different.

She was getting a little tired by this point but there is something about the innocence of her expressions that I love.

Lily loves to create and do art just like my Mimi.  

I have no doubt they would have had a very special bond.
