You've heard it said, "a picture is worth 1,000 words." A smile. A frown. A genuine expression that we hope will be engraved in our minds and hearts forever.
Little hands. Little hearts. Little moments. They get swept up in the busyness, the chaos that we call life. They are the times that we yearn desperately for when we wake up one day and realize that those who were once little are suddenly not the tiny bundles of joy once swaddled in our arms.
The smiles, the laughter, the silly moments of sibling snuggles have left us standing in the background wondering where they've gone.
We do our best to describe that simple smile or that tough guy pose, but words can never do them justice - not even 1,000 words.
For us, that means a trip to our family photographer, Casey Lynn Photography.
Whether we're silly or serious, dressed up or fresh from playing in the dirt, she grabs hold of our memories and solidifies them for eternity.
I think her images speak for themselves, but there are plenty more on her Facebook page.
