It was hard.
But in the end, I chose this picture of Victoria, taken the very last day of 2011. Just days after she graduated from college.
There are a whole slew of absolutely stunning photos entered in the I Heart Faces “Best Face Photo of 2011” challenge.
Like this one.
And this one.
As the rules would have it, I can only choose from pictures that I have taken. Which is really quite limiting.
But I do truly love this one. It’ll be sitting on my nightstand soon.
It’s special to me because it captures my biggest baby at such a pivotal time in her life. She’s just about to venture out on her own for the first time.
And it captures her as she is – happy, carefree and… dadgum it, so very young and beautiful.
Enjoy your youth, my love. Enjoy it.
