Theme this week: Textures.

It is so fun.

I met Drew there.

And she helps me all the time.

With pictures.

With textures.

With life.

I heart her.

Thank you for being my friend Drew.

You make the world

a more beautiful place.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

You have such lovely photos and this one is beautifully finished off.

BTW, I was reading down through your blog and I think that was just such a special gesture for your boy to make with regard to the Haitian appeal. Children do teach us so much.

On the hair ... his hair just grows like that quite naturally. It is very straight and he has a natural side parting ~ so no, not hard for him! :D
In fact all my boys hair looks a bit like this if I leave it, some more waif like than others! :D
