Vignette




oldest child
remembers
lessons learned
from Daddy
gone too soon ~
she needed more


first born
takes charge
leading the way
baby Sis doing
what she enjoys most ~
licking the bowl




present tense perfect
or so we thought
a sweet fantasy 
that it would last forever

  1. This is the perfect blend of vignette style snaps in both picture and words. Such a lovely family, so many memories to cherish. And how hard it must have been to lose a father so young in life.

  2. So sorry that both your parents are gone. I lost my father 11 years ago and still feel it to this day. Love the memories that you've captured here. Beautiful write.

  11. Very beautiful. We often think our parents are invincible when we are young. It is sad to know they are gone. I still think sometimes I feel my parents with me.
