When I was pregnant, I tried to guess the gender of my baby by listening to all the old wives tales. I analyzed my belly shape and how high or low I was carrying. I used the Chinese gender calendar. I pondered what it meant when I reached for yet another box of oreos instead of salty chips. All the little things anyone had ever told me. Even though I only have sons, one of the old wives tales that always stuck with me is “daughters steal their mother’s beauty.” Well, this mom has proved that myth to be 100% WRONG! Doesn’t she look amazing? And her skin is flawless.
After I was done being jealous over her complexion, we had a great time hiking around Chalkridge Falls. The best thing about Chalkridge Falls is that even though I go there at least once or twice a month, there’s always a new little spot to explore and photograph. This time we explored the rocky area beneath the bridge then headed for the river to cool off from this Texas summer heat. I love that she volunteered to get in the river and allowed me to get these images.
Thanks you two for being awesome!
