DAY 125: Cinqo de Mayo


May 5, originally uploaded by Kikigill.

Here's Elena posing with the finished product of about twenty-five hours of work...a seventeen page sales list. Not every little girl loves animals, nor particularly zoo animals. Not every mother works for a toy company that sells to zoos and aquariums. When I bring home rough drafts of my work, it's like Christmas to Elena. Here she is practically swimming in the pages of specials items, screeching, "OH LOOK!!! A meerkat!!!" As if she were spotting a celebrity! It's a lovely shared interest.

I love this picture of Elena. It's so sweet, that smile, that shirt and just how proud and sweet she looks here. Priceless! :)

This is indeed a wonderful picture of Elena. And the new job is a match made in heaven. If for any reason you leave it, she can step right into your shoes.
