lulu is ... contemplative


lulucontemplative, originally uploaded by jenniferlivolson.

my sister. my absolutely gorgeous sister.
i don't speak of her much on here. probably because she is the least public person that i know. which would probably send her friends in to a fit of hysterics, given that she is most likely completely different around them.
however ... a better adjective could not have been created to describe her.
contemplative.

she spends much time in quiet contemplation.

occasionally (ha!) reaching for her cell phone ... updating her facebook status or texting a friend.
and the funniest part is that even her facebook stati (note ... i'm totally staking claim for that plural form of status.) don't give much information into her true feelings.

for example ...
"Oops..."
or
"Is Not in the Mood."
or
"So bored I'm eating asparagus."

ok ... so maybe not all of her contemplation is heavy. but it is just kinda who she is.  and it makes me giggle beyond belief.

she's not a talker contemplative person ... she's a thinker and a non-sharer. (except on facebook maybe.)
and ... in the end it doesn't matter ... because she's ours. my sister. my girly-girl's auntie. my mom's baby.

i have to be really sneaky trying to capture photos of her with her nieces. because she tends to hide behind someone or something ... or at the very least ... hide her emotion behind a silly face. 

so this day ... at the zoo ... she was contemplating sea otters. or maybe asparagus? i don't know. but ... i was attempting to capture pictures of her with the girly-girls ... you know?  so i could someday prove to them that their auntie did truly enjoy spending time with them.  and i caught this.  i found this photo to be so ... striking. and a funny glimpse into her whozits and whatzits...

love ya lulu.

oh ... and by the way ... believe it or not ... this photo is being entered in to i {heart} faces ... contemplative challenge.



because ... apparently ... photos (oh yeah ... and the girls and the husband and the work and the farmer's market and ... life ...) are all i really have time for anymore.
