4/52


“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Saxon: Oh my heart.. That dimple and those fangs get me every time.
Caelan: He claimed to be king of the flowers.

I have always wanted to make a flower crown, but with two boys i don't get to make many pretty things. So it got me thinking...why do we genderize flowers? They are a lovely part of nature, we see them and smell them in the air we breathe all the time.

So i thought, why not just make my son's a flower crown!? Caelan loves to pick flowers, he thinks they smell delightful, and it'll be a fun project for us. We have had all of these lovely frangipanis sitting under our tree lately so i put them to use. Caelan picked the leaves and helped with the flowers. I quickly strung them together and voila! We had a flower crown :)

As you can see, it was a big hit for my boys. They loved it!

Following along with the lovely Jody.

  2. Oh my, get out! These are some of the loveliest photos I've seen in a while!!! The color, the lighting, the softness of their skin and those joyful expressions. What handsome boys you have. And I also commend you on breaking out of the genderized box we live in. I'm guilty of it, but do make an effort to not be. I love so much that you did this and shared it :) Bravo. -Misty

  12. Hello from Jodi's page!

    Beautiful crowns, and your boys look very handsome. The photos remind me of how ancient roman men are often depicted wearing crowns made of vines/leaves!
