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...



"Why can't you fly now, mother?" "Because I am grown up, dearest. When people grow up, they forget the way." -J.M. Barrie from Peter Pan

Photo info:  I took this one over 20 years ago (remember before digital cameras?).  I know this because that's my daughter on the left and her childhood friend on the right.  Thought it would be fun for her.  I love the quote she picked for today - makes me want to go find a swing.

Swings are one of my favourite things and I've always dreamed of having a huge ceilinged room tall enough to have my own swing to read and dream upon.....for the moment I have to make do with our hammocks.

Loving this picture is pure joy and childhood bliss.

Happy weekend Lovely,
xx

I love to swing with Abby at the park! I've been a little more cautious though ever since the time the seat broke under me and I fell off. Ouch!

This is such a lovely pairing - photo and quote. I love Peter Pan. Verry nice way to go into the weekend. :)

Oh precious girls! They grow up too fast. The Fashionista will be 23 on Wednesday.

It's almost impossible since I'm only 29. :)

This is one of my all time favorite pairings!! Love the fabulous shot - you capture the essence of childhood summer. And the quote is so poignant - so sad that we all have to grow up and lose the innocence and imagination of our youth!
