hugs and kisses.

It's been a long time, hasn't it? I missed my blog, and you, dear blog-stalkers.  I missed you a lot!!! I had the amazing experience of shooting a surprise paty for an 80 year old this past weekend.  It was really fun, and you could tell that this family really loved her.  They came from as far as Missouri to visit, and it was the first time in over 10 years that the whole family had been together. 
Here is what I thought was the most amazing thing.  When Grandma Perla came in, she was so excited to see them, and she went around the room, hugging every single person who was in attendance.  And it wasn't just one of those quick let-me-hug-you-so-I-can -get-to-the-next-person kind of hugs.  It was an I-missed-you-so-much-and-I-am-so-thrilled-to-see-you kind of hugs.  To EVERY SINGLE one of her guests.  Let me show you what I mean:

Today, hug someone like you mean it.  :)

What a sweet post! I think I've said this before, but you really have a gift for capturing the emotion in your photos.
P.S. I am totally stealing your line at the end..."Today, hug someone like you mean it". LOVE that!
