Get Happy!

When you have a child get married, it makes you do a lot of reflecting.  It is kind of fun to think about them through the years, how they have changed and how they have stayed the same.  As I have been going through all of the hundreds of pictures from engagements, bridals and the wedding day, I couldn't help but smile as so many reflected her personality.

From almost birth, Ashley has had a passion and joy for life that was and is contagious.  Sure she would cry and get upset like any child, but it was always short lived.  Sometimes so short lived that in the process of throwing herself to the floor in anger, she'd be laughing before she could kick her feet and pound her fists.  When you sang songs together, she would tell you most enthusiastically, "Good job, Mommy! Good job!"  She could never keep a straight face, and always had a twinkle in her eye.
This is one of my favorite pictures of her. :)

Now she is all grown up and married, and the years have perhaps mellowed her a little, but she still is quick to smile, and more often than not can be found dancing around the house about some new thing that she is excited about. I hope she always keeps that sparkle and spring in her step!

Here are some of my favorites that the photographer captured:
