The recital is over, my tears of love dry now. She is curled on my lap for the drive home. I look through the two hundred photos I took. There She is, looking so grown up for her three years. Her perfect soft skin glowing with excitement and pride…

Dance baby, like noone is watching

This is a short 101 word story written for Mama Kat’s linkup. I’ve been away a while but hopefully I will be around a lot more.

Thank you! I adore this photo. I took it yesterday and turned it into this today. I have not stopped staring at my girl in it all day. She had such a great night and we have celebrated all day.
