If there is photo to define Happiness with a capital H that would be yours.

You don't look like a goofball at all, you look like "my cup is spilling smiles it is so filled with Happiness" look. And the photo of your girls is nothing less than a repetition of yours. Nothing like love to make things glow is there?.

To add to your cup I am sending some love from here ;-)


ohhh beautiful! i can taste the cool salt air. i can feel your family love...preciously delicious.thanks for the taste of coastal summer.

thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog..it really means a lot. and it was nice to briefly meet you before I had to leave home from AU. wasn't AU magical and childlike?

Your daughters look like models! I'm sure you've heard that before. They are gorgeous and of course your grandchildren..way too cute. My daughter's name is Violet. I think we chattered about that breifly.

I sigh when I see your work. So absolutely inspiring.

Great photos. What a beautiful family. Everyone looks so happy and healthy! How lucky you must feel!



Great photos of a beautiful and loving family. Looks like such fun!


Thank you so much for posting pictures from the beach! Being a native Washingtonian, I miss those chilly, foggy days and the strong smell of salt water along the Washington coast. I could imagine myself exactly there when I was little. thanks!


What magical pictures...I love the coast when it's foggy! Your colors are so soft and misty and your family is SO beautiful! Roxanne
