hello spring.

On this beautiful spring afternoon... there was NO way we were going to stay inside... so we took a walk around our little Korean village, and had fun jumping over cracks and from stairs, skipping/galloping like a horse, and of course, posing for the camera. But, the walk wasn't shared with just Charlotte and myself...

that's right... Charlotte INSISTED that "Dada" come on the walk... I gave up explaining to her how he was in America and wouldn't be able to fly here just for a quick walk... so I took out her FAVORITE photo of the two of them, and that worked out JUST fine. She was completely satisfied with the photo... but I know this little one is completely ready to be reunited with him (as am I)... can you believe, today marks exactly 3 months that he's been gone.

Do you see in the above pictures how her face LIGHTS up when she sees him... it's like love at first sight...and I adore her reaction to seeing his face... it's exactly how I feel whenever I see him... and I love how she loves him so. If I had to share him with anyone... it would be Charlotte, and I couldn't be happier. She gave him (his picture) hugs and smooches, and then she was ready to take pictures by herself and with me...

this sweet little number (the headband, not the girl!) was gifted to Charlotte by a dear friend, Moriah... she makes beautiful creations, and you can find them here. For those with daughters with glasses... these are PERFECT... they keep Charlotte's glasses on, as opposed to just a band that sits behind her ear... it's too cluttered behind there then, and often they don't last long on her head.

and if you haven't noticed in previous posts... I've been sporting the "full" bang again... I missed them, and I'm happy to have them again..

pretty much as happy as I am to go barefoot in my TOMS, and say, "See ya later" to my boots...

hello spring... won't you stay for awhile?

Pin It!
