The Little Girl In The Blue Dress…

I have the sweetest picture of my oldest daughter.  It was taken when she was only six months old and yet it feels like yesterday.  I can see her there. sitting in the tall grass in her light blue dress, just staring up at the camera with those piercing blue eyes.  Those eyes could see right through you and melt your heart.   She has been my BlueEyed girl ever since.

This week, that BlueEyed  girl, she wore a very different blue dress; her Grad dress.


She was full of joy, we were bursting with pride.  All grown up at 14.

Without even trying, she still manages to melt my heart.

I hope you will join me in my not so Wordless Wednesday!
