cora's blue eyes


cora's blue eyes, originally uploaded by jenniferlivolson.
blue. it's a challenge that has proven to be really hard for me.

i live with two of the pinkest girly-girls around ... that seem to believe that blue is a "boy" color.
i live in a land of 10,000 lakes ... most of which are green and muddy.
i am drawn to subdued yellows and oranges and greens ... i shy away from bright bold colors.

but i married the man of my dreams. and one of the very many reasons that i love him ... are his blue eyes.

such a silly thing ... but i always wanted to find a blonde haired blue eyed handsome man. i've always wanted to have blonde haired blue eyed little girls around me. and ... yes ... i realize how shallow that seems. i'm sharing my innermost dreams here, folks. i haven't ever shared this until my dreams became realized. it's who i am.

and so ... i share my littlest's oceanic blue eyes with you ... for this challenge.

keeping in mind that this is a sooc (straight out of the camera) shot ... other than a minor cropping. i see her soul when i see this picture. a bit of an impish grin peeking from behind those blue eyes. perpetual motion ... but the greatest dear that you have ever met. the first to make sure that everyone around her is ok. the wee one that told me she loves the baby in my tummy this morning. my cora.

Those are some beautiful big blue eyes! Both of my kids (and Jamie and I too) have blue eyes and I love looking into my kid's eyes. Of course, I'd love brown or green or purple eyes too.

Sprite's Keeper said...

She has gorgeous eyes! I wish my daughter would have inherited my green eyes or my parents' blue eyes, but she lost the blue within months of life and they turned brown very quickly.

Lovely :) I am surrounded with blue eyes (as I should be, as Dad and I both have them!)and it's amazing how ALL of them look different.

Gave you an award, stop on by if you like.
