The leaves are just beginning to change and the Fall temps have finally arrived in these parts, so last week I was forced to begin going through the girls’ closets to make room for the warmer clothes.
I saved almost everything that Sarah has worn over the years in big rubbermaid containers that I have stored in our basement.
Last Sunday, I took a stroll down memory lane as I picked through the container of Fall/Winter sizes 2T and 3T.
I am most certain our family is complete, but I cannot bring myself to get rid of her clothes or pass them on.
For now, they are also packed away in the basement by size and season. One day I will be able to part with them, bur for now, I need to hold onto them and the memories of the past two years.
Hard to believe it has been almost two years since I stepped off the plane with her in my arms. She has grown and matured so much these last few months and the traces of “baby” that were there 6 months ago are now gone. My beautiful baby has turned into a little girl with a personality as colorful as the sweater she is wearing. Bittersweet feelings for this Mama.
Camera: Canon 5d Markiii

The settings for this series varied a bit:

This series was taken at 9 o’clock in the beautiful morning light.
Photos were processed with Perfect Color at a reduced opacity from Florabella’s new Colorplay action set.
I also added a slight haze and texture at the end.
