I ended up alone in this orchard last Thursday night, just as the sun was setting. I had so hoped my pretty girl would come with me to have her picture taken, but in the end she refused. Choosing to stay inside and play with her cousin instead. While I was there my cell phone rang twice, and it got cold really quickly. Nothing went according to plan.
Now, I see these few pictures as symbols of our month ahead, which is sure to be challenging for our family. I plan for many frustrating moments, but hopefully mixed with pieces of golden light.
