Whoa, dog, did I really wait almost a week to post these?

Here are some of the pictures we took last week.
It wasn't a super-formal affair- just my three ladies walking around at a favorite park.
I bought those dresses for $3.24 last spring for this specific purpose, and last week, lo and behold, we had a nice and beautiful and free-from-schedule day, so we threw them on and took off.
They like doing pictures, they like getting ice cream when the pictures are done. It was a good time.

Seeing my ladies meander around in one of the oldest and loveliest parks in our city barefoot in little dresses just instantly brought my mind to all those Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott heroines that took in the air while walking around in a field or garden or the woods somewhere on a summer afternoon. So I was feeling very imaginative and wispy and thoughtful as I sifted through them later. So they've got a very ethereal look to them, since that's where my heart was for these at first sight.
I realize that sounds ridiculous. But that's where my mind goes, people. And that's where the set got it's name.

There's more where these came from, peeps. You're being spared, trust me.

Okay, first -- lovin' the new look. It's fun. (I liked the old look, too, which is why I used some of your ideas -- but this one is very sleek.)

Also -- WOW. Gorgeous. Love the airy/dreamy look to the pictures. Ironically, despite the amazing almost popping colors -- I think my favorite was the picture of the three holding hands, walking down the path with Lily looking back. Something about that hits home ...
