Gingerbread House.



I love coming home to do projects with my mom. Our childhoods (all 8 of us) were punctuated with moments of creation - guided by our mom - braided bread, cookies for each holiday, gingerbread houses, crafts, sewing projects. She is the queen of positive reinforcement. She knows exactly the moment to insert a little chime of encouragement and when to take a little hand to guide it. Marguerite and my mom have always had an immediate connection - even when they are speaking to each other in two different languages, they have their own sign and eye language that fuses them and they take each other in.

How could anyone not connect with Rosie. I think it would be impossible!

Marguerite is so adorable, and you are so lucky to have such an amazing family. I hope you know that--I'm sure you do.

I just love your mom.... I know her from the dental office where I work. She is the sweetest and nicest person. She told me about your blog so I stop in every now and again. She was right you are a very talented photographer and blogger. connie

Bonjour Emily,

Très belles toutes ces photos. j'aime particulièrement celles de paysages, de bambous serrés, ou de mousses. J'y trouve une poésie naturelle. Merci pour ces instants passés sur ton blog à voir et revoir ce qui ravit l'oeil et raccourcit l'espace.
