Today is the birthday of a girl very near and dear to my heart. I remember the day she came home from the hospital, all tiny and pink and new.

Amanda is the youngest of my oldest brother’s children and quickly became my baby.

This past weekend we attended a family reunion. A few days before we left, I called Amanda and asked (okay, begged and pleaded) if she and her honey would pose for some photos for me for potential book covers.

She agreed (mostly because of the whining and sniffling) and we set a time to meet at their place.

I had a great time taking the photos and I think she enjoyed it to. The jury is still out on whether Marc did or not.

Here’s a few of them:

I took a little artistic license with this one.

Happy Birthday, Amanda! Hope you have an amazing day.

(And thanks to Marc for putting up with me!)
