Self Portrait Challenge - with someone.

The self portrait challenge this month has been 'with someone' and I have been mostly absent. I tried to bend my mind around how I could honor the vital people in my life in just four Tuesdays. Also the randomness of who I actually had self portraits with or could get to in time for the challenge. It just wouldn't work. I have decided that I will periodically share important people from my life with you over time - as I have in the past - and give them each their due.

Having said that, I did participate with the two others that live under this roof with me. The first week, FatBoy and this week PickleBoy...

This is one of my favorite photos ever. My heartbreakingly lovely child and I. Just the two of us as it often is. On Thursday it will be twelve years since his birth. Years filled with, of course, some struggle as that is the way of life but more importantly filled with joy.
Happy Birthday week my boy of all kinds of joy.
Oh, do I ever love, love, love you.

This is precious! You and your son have identical eye color and the coloring of your lips is also the same. Amazing.

Great SPC post!

And happy birthday to the PickleBoy!
