( taking flight )

life is an ocean, a tide that comes in and goes out, but always returns.

ebb / flow.

my sweet scarlett... my daughter... you are a beautiful gift to me.  you inspire me, question me, push away from me, ask of me to become a better woman everyday.  thank you for being mine, yet truly yours.

these photographs were taken in italy this summer... scarlett exploring, imagining, creating a world of her own.  what a blessing to watch her take flight.
