This weeks project 52 theme is ‘Natural Beauty’.

When I was a little girl, about my daughters age, my face was covered in freckles. With my strawberry blond hair I really didn’t stand a chance. Of course at the time I hated it. I used to stare in the mirror and just think “if only they would all merge together so I would just look nice and tan!” (such an imagination).

But today, now that they’re covered by everything else that age brings…I miss them. Turns out, now I have freckle envy.  I adore them, I think they’re beautiful and/or charming.  So imagine my absolute delight when a few freckles sprinkled themselves across Grace’s nose recently. I can only hope that unlike me she will love them while they last…
