She's growing so much in just a month. Its incredible. I don't mean growth in terms of physical size. I mean spiritually and mentally. The amount of self love, self esteem and strength she has gathered is absolutely amazing.
She used to be too shy to do a silly pose on her own. Especially with a little boy in the background. "Hey, mom, look at me...one with the universe (as she giggles)". She would have cried if she sat on a wet bench and left a water mark on her rear for anyone to see. Here, she is running and playing without a care in the world. She called it a "hiking fail" and laughed at herself like it was the funniest thing she's ever said.
She would get embarrassed if anyone caught her trying to dance. Here, she is dancing her little heart out to the beat of whatever drum in her head. I was taking pictures...turned around and she was just dancing her heart out on that little trail.
She was so proud of herself when I told her that she just completed her first mile hike at 12,095 ft elevation. She mostly ran...and without the need of her emergency inhaler. I was proud too ♡
She felt as beautiful as the Maroon Bells reflection. Even with her day old, unicorn face paint from the previous day. That's what happens when you take an impromptu drive and end up playing in places that are just too pretty not to try and capture.
Lilly is becoming everything I've ever wanted to be. Free spirited young tiny woman, whom is empathic to a fault and so full of light and love that everyone feels it and gives it back to her.
