    • Library lady

      Peek-a-boo to our favorite little shadow and her mama! You are right that our shadows are a mirror image of our actions until darkness falls for protection and a much needed break from those shadows!

    • So true! I forget until he does something just like I’m doing – so far it’s all in the cute and good category. Merry Christmas, Loechners!

    • Your thoughts are always so spot on. Thanks for this reminder. Happy New Year to you and your precious family. Thanks for always being so uplifting :)

      • Ahhh, thank you sweet Katie. I just LOVE your spirit!

    • I love that you were able to capture Bee’s delight during the process. That’s awesome. Love to you, sweet Erin!

      • Oh, I owe that one to the photographer, Husband. ;)
