because i can. {an *i heart faces* challenge}

after being so caught up in this and that and the other thing ... i've missed just sharing a simple photo in the i {heart} faces challenges. 

with the craziness involved in the end-of-school-year business ... i just couldn't get anything in on time ... and then this week popped up ...

whimsy.

and i immediately thought back to a photo i captured of stellers.  dancing.  quite possibly one of my most favorite photos of her ever.  (do i always say that?) she was just her.  involved in a moment of spinning across a beach.  sand sprinkled across her heels.  eyes closed.  dancing.  her blonde hair blowing in the breeze.  lost.  in that moment. 

stella is such a funny girl.

she's this crazy mix.  a balance, maybe?  of wildly imaginative and strictly rule bound.  more often we see her rigid rule follower ...

but occasionally we get a sublime glimpse of a girl in love with life.  a dreamer. 

this is her.

in all her whimsy.

thanks, i {heart} faces for being there ... even when i haven't been.  i always click on over to see what you are up to ... and it's nice to join in once again. 


you should click on over too ... see what other whimsical photos you can discover.
