Do something special for yourself Reply Thanks so much Nora. Yes, bittersweet is the perfect word to describe today. Reply Remember the days when they were really little and the days felt like they would never end? And just like you said…Poof and they are gone…. I love this photo, it says so much. 🙂 Reply Thanks so much for your comments. Yes, I do remember those days when she was really little, seems like yesterday. Although I must admit it was the high school years that felt like they would never end ;-)! Either way, time goes by too fast…. Reply She looks so unhappy…ha,ha. Moving in is so different now. I left with a suitcase of clothes, I didn’t have many, and mailed a box of linens – period. I learned how to knit that fall so I could have a sweater that didn’t look like it came out of so. Calif. Reply Yes, many things have changed over the past years. Now there are all sorts of companies that will prepackage dorm room supplies and have them shipped directly to the school for you. Everything is there waiting for you when you arrive. What service! Reply This is a truly special photo. It captures her mood and the moment perfectly. She looks so exuberant and giddy! You obviously had a lot to do with that, so I hope you feel proud. Good job!!! Reply Thanks so much! I love this photo too. It totally captures my daughter’s spunky personality and zest for life. Funny thing was that I didn’t take very many photos that day – I was just too wrapped up in the moment (I think I took 5 photos total!) I snapped this during a spontaneous moment when she and her roomie were in the midst of the moving-in mayhem. I chose to process this image in black & white and I added a little grunge to impart just a touch of my melancholy mood to the image. ‘Bittersweet’ as Nora said above… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
