she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is in interning in D.C. for the summer, a photograph I've taken and she sends me back a quote she feels goes with it. So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result...


"Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered by anyone to this country is to bring up a family." 
-George Bernard Shaw

Have a super weekend and I'll see you on the flipside.

First I had a somewhat long look at the pic wondering what quote MJM would put with it. I read the quote looked back at the pic and the pins looked like a family, standing tall and proud!
Nice shot Jeanette and insightful pairing M.
Wonderful weekend all!
