my girl. {ten years today}

Took these the day before the haircuts last week. :)

This is where my heart is today…with my little girl, who isn’t quite as little as I wish she was. Today my girl went all double digits on me, and I just stand in disbelief that I have been a mother for a decade. So UNREAL.  How can I be 25 with a 10 yr old? ;)(Just kidding…)

To my Priya Izabella….

You warm my heart every day.

Although it drives me crazy at times, you amaze me with your free spirit, with your lack of inhibition, with your carefree style.



One thing I will always love is your over dramatic laugh…




So grown up, but still so small.  Ten years is such a new stage, a breaking of a new dawn.



Those beautiful brown eyes….for ten years they have repeatedly melted my heart.



Looking at you, I wonder what type of woman you will become.




I hope that you grow in strength, knowledge and good character, by the grace of God.


I love you precious girl- today and always!!!  And (for you P) I will post more later…baby photos and whatnot.  But right now the house is a bit chaotic!

Gail - She’s so, so beautiful Jess. I can’t wait to see what kind of pictures you’ll be taking of her at 16, when she’s submitting them some place to model ;)

Fifth shot down, b&w — so much personality in that one it just stands out to me.

Mama / Grandma Beth - WOW… these photos kinda “caught me off guard” or something. Priya looks older already… but the “strappy” outfits make her look even older…. YIKES stop the clock! According to pic. number in order… here is what I saw: 1 = Brett and my Dad’s Lebanese family, 2 & 4 = a girl from Lebanon, 5 = unfortunately she looks a little like me here, 6 & 7 = an American Indian girl, 9 = just Priya, 11 = Jesse, 12 = Priya as a “little girl”. HAPPY B’Day to MY Priya-bella with Much Love!!
