I ❤ Faces: Week 29



This week, the theme at I ❤ Faces is "At The Beach". I searched desperately for an incredibly sweet photo of my grandpa and grandma at the beach. Those of you who follow my blog know that my grandpa is not doing so well. He was diagnosed with an Astrocytoma Brain Tumor in its 3rd Stage of cancer. He had it removed, started chemo and radiation and everything was smooth sailing...

Until three weeks ago when everything was decidedly NOT smooth sailing. He has good days and bad days but he is actually doing MUCH better than 3-weeks ago thanks to the many prayers being prayed for him all across the nation and world.

Because of what he is going through, i wanted to honor and encourage him by posting that aforementioned picture But...I...Can't...Find...It. I'm so sad. I'll keep looking!

The last time we were at the beach was when we went to visit my Grandpa shortly following his brain surgery. He was doing really well and we took some great photos of him with Baby C. Sadly, none of those were on the beach.

But J and I took Baby C down to the beach and I found this picture especially endearing--the two people I love the most having so much fun together.



While mine isn't a "good" picture (like every week, I'm just entering to play along!), I cannot wait to see what amazing pictures of beaches + faces people captured. I know the opportunities for an incredible photo shoot on the beach are endless so please join me in heading over to I ❤ Faces and drooling over the other entries!

My father-in-law and sis-in-law, AND sister, all have great photos of the beach, too, so make sure you check those out, too! (links to come--this last sentence was a STRONG hint to them to post their own entry!)

I wish I could have entered, but I have had no computer for over a week. I managed to jump onto my roommates for a minute here but have no access to any of my stuff. I just did a marathon catch up of the blogs though! Miss you and the internet and getting to catch up with you on here. So sad...
