    Beautiful shots, Lotus. I’m glad to see that you’re taking pictures and posting weekly winners — a ray of sunshine & pure fun for lots of people – when you’re feeling so badly. You’re awesome. Thinking of you.

  • 1st: I hope you’re doing ok; have been concerned about you. I wasn’t sure if you’d post this week or not & would’ve completely understood if you didn’t. Keeping you & your family in thought & prayer.

    2cd: what you’ve done w/your pics this week~you’re putting my pics to shame ;)

    3rd: ♥ the Braden ones; he is a precious one & there’s just something about a sleeping child ;) And, you hold on tightly to your reason to smile~that’s what’s going to get you thru!

    4th: ♥ the colors in they shine on! And, I just ♥ the “artsy-ness” in the beauty in detail.

    5th: Take care of yourself Lotus! And hold on tight to John & Braden!

    You made some very nice work this week, that last one of Braden is absolutely adorable, but beauty in detail is one of my other favourites!
