I love this picture because it’s you. In all the messy smiles and shy eyes, it’s you. And you’re beautiful. Not like a supermodel. Like a you. In all the unique ways and little gold nuggets in your heart. It’s you. And I love you. Not just when you’re perfectly fashionable and gorgeous, but also when you’re messy and your makeup is old. Because that’s how I know you. I love this picture because it’s you.
This morning my little sister, Patti, and I, went to the Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival at Ann Morrison Park. Neither of us had been since we were little tykes. She’s also a photographer and we had a lot of fun with the gorgeous colors and gentle sunrise.
