just sit there and look pretty....

or
look like the most beautiful person his eyes will ever see
~
this mama and her little boy were sitting on the porch of a little place we eat lunch at on the weekends. i couldn't help but move myself in such a way to shoot out the window at the two of them, praying that i'd capture the magical love they shared. it was tangible, that love and his eyes, along with her gentleness took my breath my away.
~
is having a little love affair contest of her own
which involves these six words
"just sit there and look pretty"
and
this photo
was the one i picked out of my "busting at the seams" file
that seemed most appropriate
