melted my heart
my cousin’s 10 year-old daughter Essence came into NYC today to hang. she is the coolest girl. smart, sensitive, gentle, observant. after a long day filled with activity (including the matching manicures modeled below), we sat sharing dinner.
Essy looked up at my Godmother and I and said, “When I’m grown up and have children of my own, I’m gonna tell them all about you.”
WOW. My heart almost lept out of my chest. Children say the most beautiful things sometimes.
I am so blessed with family.
