brown eyed girls

I melt into these eyes.

They are each brown eyed girls, but the browns are so different.

Anna’s are dark chocolate, black coffee, Labrador.

Mckenna’s are milk chocolate, a leather couch, wet sand.

These two are the bookends of our family, seven years apart, yet can share shoes and shirts.

I took these on the day that Maile took our photos. I have more to share from that day, but will have to get to it next week, because I need a break from this computer, man.

  1. Oh Tara – that’s the magical thing about you – you caught my kids’ eyes, too. It’s like I can see the spark that is Anna, and the depth that is McKenna. Taylor’s eyes are McKenna’s color….just a *titch* more hazel, and you caught that one eye is more golden than the other. I’ve never been able to capture that. I had the PTSA meeting here today and things came to a halt as everyone admired your pictures of our family. Have to take a picture of my pictures to share.
