Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
I know seeing that lovely face puts a big smile on yours. Enjoy her visit!
Kathy, it certainly did! She is such a joy to be with and we had a fantastic visit/vacation with her this summer.
She has grown up so much just from last year!
Kelly, it was really apparent to us, too. She's gotten taller and even more beautiful during the past year. It was a lovely visit; she's such a sweetie!
What a joy it is to watch the young people growing up. I've been checking in on her every summer for 7 or 8 years now as you've shared summer visits. I would like to have a granddaughter like her.
Mary, it is a joy to watch her as she grows more and more self-assured and happy with each new year. She is one of the most respectful, kind, loving, funny and intelligent teenagers I know. Of course, I'm biased, but others would agree. :)
I so love this picture!
As do I, Nan!
What a beautiful young lady she has become! Enjoy your time together.
JoAnn, she's just as kind and intelligent (and witty and fun) as she is beautiful. We are so blessed and had such a great vacation with her to the PNW. The time went far too quickly.
What a lovely girl! And, reading on the porch - awesome shot! :)
Iliana, just as lovely on the inside as out. Yep, she's a reader, which makes this Nanny very, very happy. :)
