I haven’t been entering many of the I Heart Faces challenges lately. There has just been too much going on around here to keep up. But, in the spirit of patriotism (and because I just fell in love with this photo I snapped of Miss Cadence in her 4th of July dress), I figured I would enter this week’s challenge. There is no judging or winning this week, which is fine by me. I just have a whole lot of fun clicking through all of the gorgeous entries.

I think the reason I love this photo so much is that it is classic Cadence. While my little Energizer Bunny has a million different goofy faces that she is perfecting these days, this sort of solemn, pensive expression is the one she wears when she’s not trying to act like a goofball, and I find myself wondering just what exactly is churning in that little mind of hers. I imagine that one day, she will be telling us some really great stories.

Be sure to head over to I Heart Faces to see some of the other beautifully patriotic photos entered in this week’s challenge! And I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday!


  1. Cadence is growing up too fast!! I’ll bet she had a great time celebrating the 4th of July in Colorado.

  2. her dress is SO darling !! and her chubby little legs that end in those adorable little shoes πŸ˜€ i totally want to scoop her up and make her giggle πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you Kara! She is such a sweetheart, and the moment I snapped this photo, I loved everything about it–her posture, her expression, the way she is standing with one foot slightly turned in.
