So Alike

Have I mentioned how in love with the new My Mind's Eye Collection I am?  The papers are so versatile, and fun, with soft muted colours, yum.  I used yet another one to create a layout celebrating the similarities between Darwin and his father.  Years ago people would say how alike they looked, I didn't really see it then, to be honest.  Lately, however I've been seeing it more and more.  Not just in the physical traits either, but in the way they laugh, and what they joke about.  The way they both sit in their respective recliners to watch television, and other little, everyday ways.  This shot was taken at the airport while waiting for our plane to Orlando.  I had the camera pointed in their direction, from behind, and asked them to turn around so I could get a photo of them, and voila, there it was again: that same look on both of their faces. 
MME Follow Your Heart papers, and embellies
Looking at this photo still makes me laugh.  I'm glad that these two have a good relationship.  It doesn't happen often, but D will even call his dad on occasion just to chit chat.  No, I'm not kidding.  I love that he does that.  Their relationship gives my girls a standard to strive for when choosing their respective mates.  I am blessed to have two gentle, humble, loving, caring, funny, sweet guys in my life.  Here's hoping you have a few good men in your life too.

Have a wonderful day friends,
