These pictures are of Kallie, but when I look at them, I see....I feel my parents' house. The flowers and fruit trees out back (right now there are peaches everywhere!). The pebble stone patio, the mat on the step, and even the shoes next to it (the shoes change, but there is ALWAYS a pair there). The tiled kitchen countertops and the sun streaming in through the family room sky lights. Everything is the same from growing up. And in all of these things.....I feel my mom.
I am also remembering to "appreciate" Kallie's outfit, which she picked out and put on all by herself. Yep, a summer dress paired with pajama pants and brown sandals on backwards! Gotta love that girl :)
