BLACK AND WHITE WEDNESDAY - "NEWBIE"

I am a newbie to Black and White Wednesday. So I hope that my first attempt is a good one. I decided to give it a whirl and visit many of my favorite blogs who play along every week.

I have been following Lisa over at The Long Road to China for a very long time now. Actually she was one of the first blogs I ever added to My Blog List. And she indirectly got me hooked on Matilda Jane. I was always in awe over Sarah's precious outfits that I inspected one of Lisa's spectacular photographs closely one day and spotted the Matilda Jane tag on Sarah's shirt. It was all over after that and have been addicted ever since. I cannot wait to follow The Long Road to China while they receive their precious miracle China doll one day soon.

The picture I decided to add to Black and White Wednesday is one of my favorites of my daughter Halainah. It was taken during a photo shoot to try and capture the perfect picture for Halainah's 2nd birthday invitations. I just love her expression in this pic.

I sort of cheated I guess by adding a tad bit of color. But I thought it added a little something special.

Run on over to Lisa's blog and read her heartfelt post as well as checking out some other spectacular Black and White pics.
