On one of the walls in our living room, just left of the couch, hangs a large rectangular shaped collage frame, filled with precious photos of Eleanore and Charlie. I look at the pictures so often, that I could probably describe what each one looks like, in both the order in which they hang, and the colors that fill each space.
When presented with this weeks i heart faces challenge, this picture came into mind immediately. Remember Eleanore's long beautiful hair? I could cry, if I let myself look too deeply at the images that my eyes captured when I chopped it all off with a pair of dull haircutting scissors here in our home a few weeks ago. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her beautiful tangles and knots. Even though it was always in her face, and constantly being dipped in whatever was inside her bowl, she just doesn't seem quite the same without it.
Blurry bangs, textured curls framing her face, shiny floors that had probably just been swept and swiffered, and just a little bit of chocolate pudding leftover from snack time resting above her lip... what a cutie.
