Coaxing Happy Tuesday


Oh, it all started out fine. Bringing out the green make-up & the green guitar....deciding on the dresses and the necklaces. Something as simple as the back of a dress can de-rail the whole thing, though. I gotta be careful. I wouldn't want to say Happy is temperamental so much as moody as hell....but I Laugh in her Face! Hah, They call me Grace (under pressure)!! Plus she loves me so I can make her smile by just lookin' her in the eye. And if I should tell her she looks mysterious, she squints right back at me, as if I am the mysterious one. She's clever and Happy is even more beautiful on the inside. I'm not just saying that because I'm Happy's mother, neither. Alas, she is also muy delicada......tres Fragile'. It was chilly up in the foothills so she wrapped herself in her Big FluFFy red robe until we set up for the shoot. I wish I would have taken that picture. Next time.

This one really makes me smile and I can't put my finger on why -- but it's awesome.

Wizard of Oz meets old school country. I love it. She is just so beautiful, and you have the most artistic eye. I so want to come and join your Tuesdays.

Cute! :) I love how you two do this. I think it's a most wonderful activity and something Happy will be able to actually "look" back on and remember her mother. :)

Besides, I finally get to to see the green guitar!

I agree. It's awesome. I have a hat just like that, or I used to before the children took it.
