Whoever said 'take a picture, it'll last longer' was onto something. If I hadn't taken this photo of J on the evening all the cousins got together to decorate christmas ornaments I don't think I'd have any recollection of it. It makes me happy every time I see it and I remember just what it felt like on that warm summer evening 4 years ago when we were hoarse from laughter, sticky from glue and sparkly from glitter.
