Story Behind The Photo

Tuesday, November 17, 2015



I was so excited to link up with Elle today (next link up on December 22), I put it in my calendar and as the date approached I couldn't think of a photo I wanted to write about. Then I saw it, on the very top of my photos on my phone, and I thought, Yes! 



These two beautiful girls are my nieces. On the left is Gabriella, and on the right is Arianna. Both daughters of two different brothers. Arianna (on the left is also my god daughter and birthday thief). 

This photo makes me super happy, I'll tell you why... When they were both younger, they didn't really like to be held (Gabriella by me, Arianna by anyone). So the photos we took were more like this one: 



On this photo, Arianna is on the left and Gabriella is on the left. My slightly annoyed and sad face in the middle. 

We've come a long way! They super duper love me now and it means the world to me to be able to hold them without them crying haha! 

Linking up with Elle, go share your story behind the picture.
