It just doesn't get better than this. Mother holding her newborn baby and dad sharing in the emotional blessing.
Yet another photo from the massive Knies family box of treasured photos. In fact, my husband brought more back from Texas last week.
Please reflect on all the wonderful men and women who gave their lives protecting our country. Happy Memorial Day.
Memorial Day info:It is a federal holiday celebrated the last Monday in May. Also known as Decoration Day. It commemorates United States men and women who died while in the military service.

Oh Elaine, yet again you make my breath catch and bring a smile to my face! I am so lucky to know you, what a wonderful talent you are.

Another beauty. Love how it all just flows together. The different papers/textures/colors, it just flows perfectly. I need to know how you made the {} though! What are they out of? And aren't these old photos so much fun to work with.
