It was such a busy week. I had five weddings to edit, an engagement guestbook that needed to be designed, galleries that needed to be posted, work sent to editors, emails that needed to be answered etc.. etc.. etc… Suddenly, a phone call with a request. My niece would be alone. Her brother would be in Mammoth. “Tia, can I spend the day with you?” Yes.. I came back the next day and worked twice as hard, but I know the day years from now that I will remember will be the day that I spent at Newport Fashion Island at Build-a-Bear and at the beach eating ice-cream, seeing the waves come in with a kid that loved me.
Humming birds are signs of hope and peace in my family. We find them in the most unlikely places…or they find us.
