Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
– Hafiz, from The Gift

Last week, this sweet little girl celebrated her fifth birthday. She has such a kind and sensitive soul, and a truly remarkable love for her family and friends… sometimes I feel like she’s wise beyond her years. (Other times, like when she’s having a screaming match with Caleb, I’m brought down to reality!)  Sweet Maggie: I couldn’t be more proud of the person that you are becoming. I love being your mom. xoxo

I made it my goal at the beginning of the month to take these photos on film, and I think I might be in love. (Or maybe it’s just the subject that I love so much!)
