iheartfaces...week 2 "best face photo"



The theme for this weeks photo challenge over at i♥faces is "best face photo".

I looked over several photos from the past six weeks and I kept coming back to this one. This is my Mom on Christmas day 2009. I guess I was drawn back to this one over and over because I ♥ her face so much. She is Mom to seven kids, six girls and one boy (I'm number 6). She is 76 years old and has had to deal with Crohn's disease for most of her life. She is loved by all her kids and grandkids and anyone who knows her.

I didn't do much editing on this shot. I cloned out a few flash glares from her glasses and cropped it a little and that was all it needed.

Love you Mom.
