In my daughter's eyes...

I've had a vision of this shot for months now. I've attempted several times, but never quite got it right. I finally did it today. Seeing it now stirs so many emotions - gratitude, relief, joy. My eyes were the one thing that I wanted to pass on to my beautiful baby girl. I want so much for her. I want her to be better, stronger & more patient than I am. But I also wanted her to always carry this small part of me with her. I love you, Hollie. You'll never understand how much until you hold your own little angel in your arms, someday.
