Freya...growing up

I recently had a visitor drop by...the sweetest little girl, Freya. The last time I saw her was over 2 years ago this spring. 

Here is Freya in 2014. She was such a wee little thing back then...barely school aged and so full of wonder. She left to travel the all over the world, and after so many adventures, was sent to me for a exciting visit. (Would she get a new dress? New shoes? Yes and yes!) I even gave her a salon day in an attempt to tame those crazy locks. No such luck there...but she’s learned to embrace her wild and spunky hair!

I opened the door and welcomed her inside. The last two years had been full of love and exciting travels, and though her heart was full, she was really looking forward to some pampering! We had both learned and grown so much over the last couple years, that it was only fitting that those changes would show in her face. 

It was so incredibly exciting to see her more mature and refined face emerge! Such a beauty (but still a little girl ). After that she had a salon day for her still crazy mane, but her lovely curls still fell into her eyes...a little wiser now, but still so full of that youthful wonder. 

Next we began working on her new outfit. Her old dress was getting a bit snug, so she felt more comfortable hanging out in her undies! hehe...good thing we were having an unseasonably warm few weeks!

It looks like she learned to I’m really impressed!

She helped me to finish a pair of snuggly boots while I picked out the fabrics for her new dress. She had one request...girly. Yes, she still loved pink and ruffles. Be still my heart...while I sat marveling over how much she had grown, it dawned on me that she was still just a child. Just a wee bit older and wiser.

Ok Freya, we want to see you now!

There you are! Suddenly feeling a bit shy? Its quite alright, its been a long trip and I know you are itching to go home.

There’s our sweet girl. Its been so wonderful having you here. I will miss you dearly.

....still so much growing up to do. Let’s not rush it. You are only little for so long....but after that, hold on to that piece of childhood in your heart!
