A Little Bit Of Sunshine

She's a little bit of sunshine,
She's a smile to light your days,
She will steal your heart and
keep it with her warm endearing ways,
She's your precious little daughter,
With a sweetness from above
Who will fill your years with laughter
and your lives with lots of love

It is rare that I get to capture Sarah and her Daddy, so I took advantage of this beautiful day in the park. Words cannot describe the way I feel when I see the two of them together.......it brings joy to my heart and tears to my eyes.

As I sit here looking at these pictures, I am having a hard time believing that two years has gone by so quickly.....Thursday is her Birthday, but Saturday will be the two year anniversary that she was placed in our arms....a day we will never forget...the day our family of three became a family of four!

Sarah is our little bit of sunshine.....even on the cloudiest of days!!

Hope you all are having a great week! I set this to auto post.....I am still in Memphis but will be back for my girl's special day! I cannot wait to see her face when she opens her gift......I just know she is going to love it!
