Young girl overlooking lake
My 7-year old daughter paused during a walk around our neighborhood lake. "It's so beautiful!", she declared, before leaving the path to get a closer look.
Time stood still as she took a few moments to absorb the scene. I was overcome by the beauty of life before me. A young, innocent child, standing amongst the ripe, blossoming landscape around her. The earth's natural springtime beauty combined with the organic innocence of childhood wonderment is captured in this idyllic scene.
