Just for fun

I'm sad to report that the wild flowers in the field have been milled and are long gone. It was nice while it lasted. And as I hinted to in a previous post I had a bit of fun frolicking one evening in my most-favoritest dress while Forest played photographer. He is actually quite good isn't he? Creative and brainy...it's just not fair.

Despite my unsatisfactory hair that night I really do like these. I don't often have photos of myself taken and it was a good reminder of how vulnerable a lens can make you feel even when the eye behind it is your closest friend. I am so used to being the photographer that I sometimes can't relate when people tell me how uncomfortable they are in front of a camera. I should do this more often just to keep my sympathy for my subjects in tact.

*dress by heidi merrick, purchased one impulsive day during my fourth month of pregnancy. you don't know how relieved I am that it actually fits.

I knew that was a Heidi Merrick dress! I have you to thank for introducing me to her amazing dresses - there happens to be a store about 30 minutes from me that sells them. Which I am trying desperately to avoid.

You look great!

I love love love the dress! Does it run true to size? I'm scared to buy anything for fear of it not fitting later one. That dress looks like it was made for you!
