she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is finishing up her third year of law school in Seattle, WA, a photograph I took and she picks a quote to go 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...

This week I switched it up a bit and sent her these pic's of the fun little birthday cake Andrew Henry got me last week.  That's chocolate hazelnut filling in there people - yum!  She sent two quotes, liked 'em both so I'm sharing them both with you as well...

I'm going on my hopefully amazing trip to China next week so I'm going to take a little blog break.  I'll try and check in with you a few times before I go but I won't post anything until I get home.  Be safe and well.
