A photo from our family travels in Provence that reminds me that sometimes we need to slow down for the littlest members of the family.
This is one of my favourite photos from our family trip to Provence, France last August. It was a smoldering hot Provençal afternoon and we were making the steep climb to the village of Oppède-le-Vieux for the incredible views of the Luberon Valley. We were nearly to the top when Emma spotted a ledge and simply sat down – too tired to go any farther. When I look at this picture it reminds me that, as hard as she tries to keep up, my baby is still just a little girl and sometimes we have to slow our pace for her. And sometimes our nicest memories result when we pause along the way instead of rushing to where we think we're heading.
