Graceful ~ Best Shot Monday

You finally give in. Allowing your long, willowy legs to be still and rest for a few stolen moments.

I watch you lying there with your hair sprawled across the pillow, your arms tucked up under your chin, and your tutu bunched up around your middle, as your eyelashes flutter closed. I think you look even more graceful asleep, than you do dancing.

Find out what is gracing everyone else’s life over at Tracey’s today.

    So sweet; there’s nothing like a little dancer crashed on the couch. Love the muted colors.

    I love watching my kids sleep… this is lovely. The bunched up tutu tells the story!

    Good gosh, Carrie! You do it every week, you always have the perfect words and photos to capture the specialness. *sigh*

    And if I ever have another daughter, I think I might name her Grace just so I can do those plays on words.

    I love the softness of the photo and your words are beautiful. To me there is nothing quite as sweet as a sleeping child.
