A friend of mine is a big Star Wars nerd like I am and she is a photographer. So one day she said "wouldn't it be fun to take DD to Disney dressed as a little Jedi.?" I said "Heck yes!" So we played near all the cool Star Wars stuff and she just kept clicking the camera. This picture is actually us standing in line waiting for the Jedi Training Academy Show. DD was being so good while we waited. Our secret weapon was this little Ewok stuffed animal she played with. She loved that thing!
I think this LO embodies all the things I hope for my DD. I hope that she continues to love animals and the outdoors, but maintains her girlie-ness. I also hope she embraces both her creativity and the Light side of the Force (Star Wars reference). Mostly I hope she embraces passion. As scrapbookers we are all so blessed to be passionate about our art, but so many women are only defined by being mothers and wives. Many of my girl friends seem overwhelmed by LIFE. And I admit I feel that way too sometimes, but thats when I turn to my passion. It is both my private time and my freedom to do or be who ever I feel like. Cheers to all my scrapbooking-quilting-knitting-painting-crafting-building-deconstructing soul sisters out there! I hope my daughter is just like you!
Submitted ast the 1 GIRL LO for the AUGUST, 1 boy, 1 GIRL, and 1 boy&girl Challenge.
