egg coloring

April 18 2014 080

when i was around five (six, seven, eight), while growing up in portugal, i had a handful of neighborhood friends i would play with just about daily (see picture here)

we would play in my great grandmother’s yard, on the sidewalk, we would fight, we would make up…

we were friends

it fills my heart with such joy to see Lily now being raised in a similar way

she has a neighborhood crew

sometimes they fight

and then they make up

either way, most importantly is the fact that she is building her own friendships

and whether the friendships will last a lifetime or not, the memories will

last friday we got together and colored eggs

in the sunshine

and then rain

and then in the sunshine again

happy ARTsy wednesday

sort of
