{Life's Little Sweet Treasures}

Daddy really is his best friend & no matter how tall the littlest bean gets he'll always look up to him
& no matter how big, he'll never out grow his Daddy's heart :) {I just love this image ♥}

because of the friendship formed while raising them." ~G. Marquez

And how could this not be my happiness for today!
watching these two strengthen an unbreakable bond daily
is a wonderful sight & it makes my heart sing :)

more happiness:

Also the theme for Shutter Love Tuesday this week is {overlay}!
I used two different gradient overlays of salmon to lighten
& brighten & then added a sun flare overlay for a dramatic fun effect!

more overlays:


well last night while working on getting my Shoot & Edit image the littlest bean came along & made it that much sweeter!!!
oh how he just loves for his Daddy to tuck him in at night & read him to sleep!Love his love for reading {well being read to at least}!!!
Especially anything that has to do with trains or the moon! But last night he choose a classic...

Sweet Shot
