A thousand words

This post is the best of my weekend. These pictures speak for me, of my Saturday morning walk, of my neighborhood and a few of the things I love about it. Saturday afternoon, my niece arrived in town. We spent the day and night together, played with our cameras and her new lens, went to lunch and visited friends, went to a movie. Went to bed. I fell asleep with a smile on my face knowing she was the other room, that she was home. When she came down the stairs Sunday morning, she looked at me, smiled, and sleepily said, Good morning. I want you to know how much I love that morning face and that sleepy voice and her walking down the stairs and greeting me. We had cereal and laughed and smiled and I hugged her at least a thousand times and followed each with, I'm so happy you came to see me. A drop of her sunshine can light the world.
