I Heart Faces - Slice of Life

 

I love the I Heart Faces theme this week!

 

Slice of Life

 

Maybe it’s just because some of my very favorite photographers happen to be ones who capture those everyday moments that you can totally picture yourself in.  Ones that become “those were the days” memories.

 

This one just makes me yearn for summer… for small town fairs and sunburned days.

What could be more fun than a grandma who loves carnival rides?  Or telling a 4-year-old to smash to his hearts content?!  I love how my mom’s curls are flying with their momentum, and how the big kid is anticipating their polite introduction.

And the little kid?  Gosh I love his delight.

I can see, taste, and feel that day all over again.

I am excited to see everyone else’s slices of life this week!
