(Kaylee & her Daddy Prom night)

We live a lifetime to capture only moments.

Moments we savor.

Moments.... when they laid this sweet creature in my arms.

Moments.... when I cried as she went off to camp.

Tonight is one of those moments frozen in time.

Words....who needs them.

This picture speaks volumes to me :)

(leaving the hospital)

Moments rushing to make it to dinner reservations on time.


Letting go. Praying hard!

And even those..

"this is the stuff that drives you crazy"


Kaylee locked her keys in her car.

The normal person would NOT think this was funny.

We laughed!

Her Daddy is a retired Police officer and locksmith.

When his fellow officers heard what she had done they rushed to her rescue.

Thanks guys!

It's moments like these that we cherish.



  1. 1. She looks beautiful.

    2. That dress is awesome.

    3. I have not one, but three, locksmiths in my phone contact list.

  2. Makes me tear up thinking about my boys going to prom one day. I still have about 13 years till then, but it still tugs on my heart! Great pictures.

  3. Love, love the post! How special that you captured all these moments. Kaylee is blessed!

  4. These photos just say it all, Susie!!


  5. Very Sweet! I hear you for sure~Cheers Kim

  6. Such sweet pictures! I have a sophomore so I'm sure I am going to be posting prom pictures next year! And yes, there will be moments that are exciting and some that will shed a tear for me too! She is a beautiful girl!!

  7. That first picture brings tears to my eyes! We are praying for your family!

  8. Hey Susie! :)
    Your daughter is just lovely and the picture with her dad, brought tears to my eyes. I'm so glad to see he's making progress. :)
    I've missed talking with you on twitter...I upgraded to internet explorer 9 and it says tweetdeck is "incompatible", so my hubby is going to try to fix it for me. Until then, I miss your face! :)

  9. Such a sweet, sweet post. Brought tears to my eyes as I think about my little 3 year old growing up!

  10. Great pictures. Your daughter is absolutely beautiful! It's crazy how fast they grow up. One minute you look and they are holding your hand and looking up at you and the next minute they are waving good bye, blowing you a kiss and out the door they go. My daughter is 13and taller than me, it is crazy how time has flown by. They grow up so fast!


  11. I so understand. Your daughter is beautiful. My Jessica is a junior in college and the prom days seem so long ago yet I remember looking at her as a little girl and not even being able to think of her in a prom dress one day. It all goes by way to fast and then I feel old. Our children do keep us young. Hang on to them. I do still have a 16 year old son at home. But I know not for much longer.
    Thanks Susie for sharing.!

  12. Simply lovely....thanks for sharing :)

  13. Susie, she is just beautiful! Love the moment with her Dad, just precious. Her hair, her dress, just beautiful I have 3 daughters who all went to is a fun filled hectic day, but you are right, it is those moments you cherish the most.

  14. Great pictures Susie - I'm so glad your daughter was able to still have a prom night "moment" with her dad. She looks beautiful!

  15. Those are some beautiful pictures to have forever, especially the one with her father.
    God bless you and your beautiful children.

  16. So so so sweet! I love that picture of her with her daddy. (she looks like you:)

  17. Your post is very touching, I felt very happy yet emotional. I have a fourteen year old and I know time flies I just pictured Prom day for me and got a little sad knowing that my babies are growing up so quickly. Time does not stop for us, yet we often stop for it and get caught up in the unimportant things in life. Its these moments that mean everything. Treasure them is right. Beautiful young lady :)

  38. “I love the idea of movement, but this White Bandage Dress can be especially difficult to achieve with a knit because they’re all Herve Leger Outlet going to be formed to the body. So we love to add movement Beer Costume with these bands that emulate fringe, and the shine of the beads gives a further Herve Leger Dresses illusion of movement.”Oh and what was Lubov herself wearing to work yesterday as I captured all this?
