I realized these pictures have been sitting in the backend of my website since August, waiting to be posted. My poor blog is sorely neglected and posting is continually put to the bottom of my to-do list!
These pictures were taken at the end of the summer, shortly before Ruby turned 8. Every night before bed I tell her she is my, "Beautiful ray of sunshine and sky full of stars." It is cheesy but it is true. Ruby is nearly always happy, positive and kind. When she was little I would tell people that her mind was made of cotton candy because she saw everything in the best light. I am so thankful to be her mom.
