August Break 2011- Day 2

i realize i have no pictures loaded on the computer of her at 16 but that will be tomorrow's post :)
big weekend...
15 turned 16
in the blink of an eye.
wedding rehearsals and wedding days held
on the beach
sister-in-laws marrying new brother-in-laws into the family...
flowergirls playing in the sand
and 16 singing
in front of a crowd of family
in a pale yellow dress
and how hard it was to work the camera
while i cried
because she did such a good job
she was so beautiful up there
who is this
this interesting, funny, compelling and intriguing person...
so separate suddenly {yet so much still a part of me that it hurts...}
you blow my mind
{with happiness}{and pride}...
i love you.
