I Heart Faces - Smile

I’ve been missing IHeartFaces – it’s just been one really awful season of the entire family taking turns being sick… which doesn’t lend for great photo ops (especially when the chick behind the lens is sick!).  But in the middle of being kicked around by the flu, we still haven’t forgotten how to smile.  And that is why I love my family so much.

Here’s Mr. Daddy:

IMG_6681

This shot is completely unedited.  And completely honest.  And unfailingly genuine.  Which, you know, pretty darn perfectly describes that man of mine: unedited, honest, and genuine.

Gotta love the weekend stubble on his chin and woodshavings on his shoulder.Anyone else notice that sparkle in his eye?  That one that Laura Ingalls Wilder always referred to as the twinkle in her Pa’s eye?  This man can grin with the best of ‘em and you always know he’s up to something.

I’m loving all the other smiles this week at IHeartFaces!

Your little write up about him is as sweet as the photo itself.

That really is a great capture, Rach (although what you call a "twinkle" I might call a "mischievous spark"...). I do love Photoshop, but I'm getting a little tired of overedited photos; it's impossible to know what's real anymore. Do you ever look at the entries for Pioneer Woman's photo contests? This week the theme is landscapes, and while her picks are beautiful, they are literally UNREAL. They've been photoshopped so much that they look like velvet art paintings. I want to see what the places REALLY look like, and I like seeing what Mr. Daddy really looks like (when he isn't in his spa robe.... ;<)
