I Heart Faces

What an amazing theme for iheartfaces this week!

Nostalgia

It is incredible to see the variety of responses this word elicits. Go see for yourself


This little miracle niece of mine was a delight to capture this afternoon as she gleefully spotted a dandelion and intently puckered up.

She didn’t care that it was a weed. Didn’t care that the adults groused that they were spreading.

She only cared to do exactly what one must do when presented with a perfect puff like this.

Take a little girl breath in, and watch your wishes float on the wind.

She skips where she goes, and giggles for no seen reason… and her joy in the little things is the best lesson of all.

Your post invokes a feeling of nostalgia in me... Even now that I am all grown up I can often be caught sneaking a little dandelion wish myself! Gorgeous with a capital G!

How beautiful! A gal just can't pass up a dandelion. Or George Clooney and Noah Wyle on ER. *ahem* I read your last two posts in a row, so I am referring to your TST, obviously. I shall be linking mine up very shortly.

So very precious. She is such a doll. Any yep dandilion wishes sure are nostalgic for me. Glad to see you joinin again.

I still make wishes on dandilions, and don't care when my hubby yells that I am infesting our grass with weeds!! Natey gets impatient when he can't blow them out and tries to rip it apart. Ahhh, I love watching them learn!

That's a beautiful picture! Who doesn't get nostalgic when they see "furry flowers" (as my kids call them) Great capture!

Thanks so much for your reply and the little story to go along with it on my blog. :o)

Adorable! You gotta make your wish, for sure!

I love this sowing dandelion seeds picture! (Oh -- and I don't think they're weeds at all...) What a cutie she is and what a great moment you've captured!

Becca said...

oh girl this is just perfect! :-) I LOVE it :-)

Jenny said...

Great picture. I remember playing with dandelions too!

This is so pretty. My mom used to cringe when we encountered dandelions. Between stains on the clothing and our constant proliferation of additional dandelions by puffing the seeds all over the yard...well, she definitely viewed them differently than us. My siblings and I used to make dandelion chains and use the yellow part of the flower to "paint" with. You definitely took me down memory lane. :)

Brandi said...
