"what's your name, girl?"

[remember how anna is the most talented person you'll ever know? she truly is. i am sure i'll most likely be spamming you with more of her pictures to come in the next few weeks. vain? probably.] 

i was walking my dog two sundays ago after church when i was approached by a sweet little boy who just moved in down the street from us. he was on his bike and he wanted to pet the dog. we sat down under a tree and talked about his cool "crazy flames" bike and how he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up. then he said, "what's your dog's name?" i told him wilson.  he said, "i like you, wilson." and gave him a hug.
then he said, "what's your name, girl?!" i told him my name is catherine.
 then he said, "catherine, i think you're great." in the sweetest little voice.
 i told him i thought he was pretty awesome, too.

it just made my heart sing.
love the little moments in life like those.
children are so pure, kind, and wonderfully honest.
