Innocence.  One definition of the word describes innocence as the quality or state of being simple and sincere.  This version, instantly, makes me think of a child.  A young child, with all the time in the world and no responsibilities to own.  It’s the simple life.  It’s the simplest time of a person’s life.  Exempt of evil in a loving home, a child will grow up to be whatever her heart desires.  A child believes the decision she makes in the moment she is living is the right one, with sincerity and without exception.  It’s what feels right.  She is sincere in her decision.  There may be consequences for some of those decisions, but it is a way the child learns the rules and boundaries set for her.  Her intent is clear, it is for her, in her moment, not for anyone else.  Given the chance to explore the world on her own, this little girl is learning what makes her smile.




And makes for some great photo ops!

When I see this angel face with rosy checks and candy blue eyes, she makes me smile.


She reminds me of the small things in life that we all so often oversee or quickly forget in the hustle of life with responsibility.   She is living the most simple part of her just beginning life.  She’s 18 months young and her life canvas is blank.  She will spend the rest of her life creating herself.

This is my favorite age of children.  They are gaining their independence,





learning to communicate with expressions and words,







still perfecting their ability to travel by foot




all while needing the support from a few significant others…





“The silence often of pure innocence persuades when speaking fails.” -William Shakespeare
