May_2014_1547 This week we toyed with the idea of theming our Sundays with Sage around Memorial Day. Determined to teach her the true meaning behind this three day weekend as she grows up, we gave her an American flag and she waved it and even kissed it... up until I lifted the camera, then she wanted nothing to do with it anymore. Then she smelled some flowers and if she could have, I'm sure she would have said, "okay, mom, I'm done taking pictures today." But my true joy from this past Sunday isn't pictured. After we went on our little family walk to take some pictures, we came home, turned on Pandora, and danced around the kitchen as a family of three. And I thought to myself as I watched my husband and my daughter twirl around the room together, this is freedom, and it is beautiful.
