We spent a full day hiking in the mountains that day. She was so tired after all the walking and climbing, she finally had had enough. Like most good men, Mark carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. When he is with her, ‘‘the apple of his eye” his burdens are light, his worries are few. Without even thinking, he swept her up, placed her there without missing a beat and we kept moving on. ~ Just like we always do.
I know this picture is a bit blurry, I know it’s hard to see her face, I know it’s really not even a great picture. What you don’t know is, I was almost running to keep up with them. She was falling a sleep on his shoulders and it just tickled me so, I had to snap this shot. Now that I think about it all, maybe this is why I wanted to share this little moment in time with you.
The beautiful fall colors. The warm sun beaming down.
It was just one of those perfect days.
