This photo was taken at the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore. It was a chilly autumn night in October, and you were excited to be in the 'big city'. I love how natural and pure your smile is, there's such an honesty to it. Nothing forced, just your pure joy shining out. You've been that way your whole life, even now...my tender-hearted boy with the easy smile and infectious laugh. I remember that you sat there in that spot, pointing out all the boats and ships at port, completely fascinated. With the sunset behind you, you turned to me and smiled, your face lit up with joy, and my heart just melted! You, anak, are truly one of a kind.
For some, my name is Maria. For others, it's Andrelita... and for those select few who've known me since childhood, it's Maan. I'm a mom, devoted homeschooling teacher, wannabe writer, amateur but avid scrapbooker, certfied BOOK GEEK, crazy wife....and recently, AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER. I hope you enjoy these snapshots of I've taken from my everyday life, reflections from my looking glass.
