Be sure to wear a flower in your hair

My son, Walker, and I were on a walk in Seattle last week when we spotted a bank of white daisies and a bushel of lavender.  I was feeling particularly free and happy, so I picked a daisy and slipped it behind my ear.  Walker liked the look, so he requested a lavender sprig for his hair.  Walking along the residential streets in Capitol Hill, we felt like flower children for a moment.  It was wonderful.

I do. I miss him terribly. He'll be back in my arms on August 9th, delivered safely by my mother. xo

I so love these vintage shots. They are lovely and very natural. I love the braided hair with the flower crown. It is so enchanting. Yes to PROTECT THE WILD LOWERS.

There is nothing like flowers in your hair to make you feel just a little boheme.
