I think have known Mary since she was about 12 years old.  We've grown up with her family in the Manassas Second Ward.  Mary is the same age as Lindsay and perhaps that is why I have always held a special place in my heart for her.  

I was honored when she asked if I would take her wedding photos on hers and Tim's special day.  

Mary has said to me on several occasions what a wonderful guy Tim is and what a great husband he is, her eyes getting misty just thinking about him.  I have no doubts that Tim is a catch- you can see it in his eyes.  But it is Tim who is getting one of the sweetest, humblest, loveliest women on this earth.  In other words, I believe that they were made for each other.

Baby Dove

For quite a while now, I have shared a friendship with whom I call, "Mama Dove."  I visited her every day in her home, located right in the middle of our butterfly bush.  Okay, maybe it was a one-sided friendship, but she did tolerate me somewhat.

Today was the first day that I noticed her little family- two baby doves!  Mama took a few minutes long sabbatical and that is when I pulled my camera out to see these cuties.  Two of them, nestled inside their little home, not even chirping yet, but sweet enough to "smile" for the camera!
