My oldest daughter is an old soul. She has been responsible and mature beyond her years since the day she finished being colicky. So often she is taken for granted…Oh, Emily will be there. Emily will do it. Ask Emily. She goes about her day fulfilling all her school work, house chores, and babysitting duties without much complaint. All of this makes her a really great to have around. But to be honest, the thing I like the most about her, is her love of the horse. On friday nights, when every other mother is picking teenagers up from the mall, the dance, the movies, or jail (hehehehe), I am picking my 16 yr old up from the barn. She is not a girlie girl who worries about make-up or the right shoes. She would rather be mucking a stall, jumping her mare, oiling her tack, or scrubbing her boots, than be any other place doing any other thing…
Emily and Jessie…you can’t have one without the other. The two are the best besties I have ever seen. Emily and Jessie have been together since middle school. They play together. They work together. They breathe together.
A long while back, I spent the afternoon with Emily and Jessie just shooting photo after photo. All of them beautiful.The wind was just right, the light was perfect, the colours fantastic, and my subjects were lovely…
These two girls share a good laugh, a great afternoon ride, a kiss, a game of hide and seek treats, puddle splashing sessions…they even share the same hair colour.
Gorgeous photos. Sounds like you are a very lucky Mom.
This post brought tears. She IS a beautiful girl, and what an amazing way for a mother to pay tribute. xoxo I absolutely love ALL of these pictures of our gal Em!
