‘Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family.  Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted.’

You know what I like about your blog? Of course there are the gorgeous pictures that never fail to amaze me. On top of that is the great quotes, poems and messages you share, and you do it all with such a wonderful mix of beautiful people. Your world is full of people of different races and cultures and I love seeing them all together. It's the way our world should be!

You are truly an inspiration. What other word can express the letter "F" better than FAMILY!

The love just streams from these pictures.

Krista said...

Your pictures are stunning!! You are lovomg my dream, get a cool camera, learn to use it and capture life's best moments!

Yes having an auntie take all 5 kids to the beach everyday was heavenly! She's extra special as she is actually the kids great aunt!! She is so much fun! Lives about 14 hrs away, so we treasure the time with her over the summer!

And yes Fenway Park has got to be one of my favorite places on earth! I still rememeber walking in the very first time, April 26, 2002! My hubbie is a born and breed new englander, sox fan for life. I was a newbie. But one step and I was hooked. I remember every sound, smell, all of it! It is a very special place for our family! My youngest went to her first game, which happened to be against the stinky yankees, when she was 10 days old! No way I was missing that!!

Can't wait to learn more about photos from you and see more! Gorgeous!

Hilary said...
