That right there, my friends, is the look of pure joy.
It's hard to ignore that kind of energy.
It becomes a mesmerizing life force of its own - sucking you in for more.
And it's even more poignant for me, this summer, as we returned to the family summer house. The house where my Nanny spent her time, cherishing each moment with her family. Taking us under her wing each and every summer. Teaching us the importance of love, life, and genuine friendship.
She passed away a few months ago, but we finally got to bring her ashes home. That brings me a lot of peace.
And I can feel her spirit continuing.
Through anyone who sits and enjoys the view. Or dangles their toes into the water, even for a moment.
Watching these two makes me genuinely believe this. I can see it in them.
Life does carry on. In many ways.
