"D"

my alphabet walk assignment was for "d"...

so, i did a walk-through at work and found some that i hope you'll like:





my original idea for "d", would be a million photos of our son, dominic, but i figured it might be a little too much.  so, here's one of my favorite photos instead:

 "dom and the dandelion"

this photo was taken during one of our walks on a cool early summer evening, we stopped to play at the playground nearby.  dom and i saw some dandelions, and the fun began!

dandelions remind me of a  conversation my husband and i had, when i was still pregnant with dominic.  my hubby joked that we should name our son, daniel or dan.  as in "DAN DE LEON"!  it would've been a funny antonym, but i'm glad that we didn't (hubby is such a goof)... LOL!

i hope you are enjoying the alphabet blog hop!  thanks again piper (one sydney road) for making this happen and helping us all meet new friends!

xoxo,
carla

Lovely 'd' photos! And your son looks so content and happy with his dandelion. Like the way Yoda and his light-sabre seem to be mirrored with the dandelion. :)

"Dan de Leon" is cute and funny but yes, good thing you didn't name him that. Dominic fits him better. :) I have a bunch of Ds in my household! hihi I love the D photos. my favorite is Dom and the dandelion. :D

@emerald window - thanks cenya, he really loves dandelions - not to good for his allergies though...

@kellie - thanks, no the palette wasn't intentional, though blues and greens (and everything in between) are my favorite hues...
