I have nothing overly clever to write today. I'm moving a bit slowly this morning thanks to three and half glasses from an absolutely divine bottle of Nera d'Avola last night at warm and lovely gathering of old friends. Still, I wanted to share a few shots of my girlie from yesterday.
Maybe the depth of field was a little short on this, and the exposure is completely different from the previous shot, but I love it when she's in the mood for pics.
As she was getting dressed for the party, she decided to raid my closet and go all "Cathy." She said, "Look Mom, just like you… jeans and all."
The weird thing is, there was one shot we saw in the bunch, and we were both like, "Wow. It's me/you." I never see me in Aidan. I see a combo of me and Dan, but I don't really see me that often. On this one, I did, and so did she.
It's the jawline. It's MY jawline. Maybe not the chin aspect, because mine has a bunch of this annoying extra stuff underneath it now, but this profile… the jaw, the chin, the ear and the neck: MY GOD! She IS my child afterall! SUCH a relief to finally believe it.
Next week, the Zielske family is taking off on a great Northern Minnesota road trip. Posting will be light depending on where and when I can find internet access. I hope to return with many good, highly entertaining tales and scrapworthy fodder.
