I was never actually tagged for the ‘photo that makes you smile’ meme (sniff, sniff!) so decided to take matters into my own hands, and tag myself. Can you do that? Well, I just have! The reason why I was so keen on this particular meme, is that I have the perfect photo – a pic that I only have to think about to start smiling. You know that movie, Perfect Storm, where all the natural elements just happened to combine together, to create a storm of catastrophic proportions? Well, that’s kind of what happened here with my sister, and her two children. I also love the way that Lucia looks really nonplussed, despite the bedlam exploding all around her. My sister, I hasten to point out, doesn’t normally look like this (thank God!). So here it is (sorry sis…):
