Between // Summer is coming! {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // little girl running into ocean, arms stretched out, excitement, Ralph Waldo Emerson quote "Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."

Between telling my 7-yr old to only dip her toes in and the allure of the great beautiful Pacific Ocean, my girls decided getting totally wet in their summer dresses and jean jackets was totally appropriate!

Really, is there more to say?! Hope you’re ready to kick-off summer (officially, tomorrow, June 21st, also my birthday – woot-woot!) with as much exuberance as my 7-yr old in this shot! Also, I love, love, love this quote, so I had to pair it with this silhouette. Besides, my daughter defines the “free” and “wild” parts of childhood, this image and quote just really encapsulates her!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! And if you haven’t signed-up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list yet, whatcha waiting for?

        All my family’s celebrations are around summer. BUT my birthday and 2 good friend are 3 days in a row. My husband’s is only a few weeks later. We all used to get together and celebrate, but since we are in China now that is not possible in person. It was nice when we can do it. Takes the pressure off getting older 😉
