Alabaster Caverns, Boiling Springs State Park and Glass (or Gloss) Mountain. One of my favorite pictures ever of Mehkaelie was taken at Glass Mountain. She was walking barefoot (she loathed shoes at this point) picking little flowers from the side of the pathway. She looks so happy and carefree in this picture. There's no comparison to it all these years later. Of course she's taken plenty of fabulous pictures since this time, but this one is still my favorite. Perhaps it has to do with my ecstasy of the day. It was one of the most perfect days of my life. Excluding the births of my children of course. Joe and I were ridiculously happy and so much in love that you couldn't pry us apart. Seeing him with Mehkaelie made my heart so happy I would nearly cry on a regular basis because of it. They loved each other so much and I'm happy to say, still do.
She turned 10 a month ago and it still seems pretty surreal. I'm sure lots of parents feel this way, though.
