Pretty Faces

Young girl looking at the camera.

When you see these faces, you just know.

Young girl smiling at the camera.

There are so many tender and sweet and sacred moments that find their way into the daily grind of this place, it's enough to make a person's heart explode.

Like adoringly feeding a baby doll out of a blue plastic... trough. Where did she even find that thing?

Heart, boom.

Little girl sitting on a chair playing with a baby.

Wearing the most awkward one-eared bunny rabbit wearing glasses helmet, and laughing about it.

Young woman smiling at the camera.

Dinkin' around with friends.

Little girls on a sidewalk.

Asking to be photographed for the hundred-and-fiftieth time. Still loving it just as much as the first time.

Following 101 steps for re-wrapping the baby.

Sitting on a house father's lap and singing Christmas songs in January.

You couldn't even make this stuff up.

These are the prettiest faces ever, aren't they?

Seriously wow.

    It’s funny… I’m sitting at my desk during indoor recess with my bowl of cafeteria “veggie bean caviar” and the students with whom I’ve been trapped indoors for every school second of the last week… And I’m feeling just the way you describe. 🙂 Aren’t we so lucky to be living the lives we love? (p.s. We miss you!)

    So gorgeous! I was an AFS student to the Philippines during my high school years ( millions of years ago!) and your pictures bring back such wonderful memories. I miss it!

    Wow, those photos are heart wrenching, they make me wish that I could afford to adopt them all and then some. They belong to a lucky lucky family indeed.

    Hi Lindsay,

    I really enjoy your recipes, especially your great photography. This Chinese dish sounds like one I would like to try although I haven’t had real good luck cooking Chinese. Will let you know how it comes out.

    I especially like following Bjork’s income reports and can’t wait to get January’s report.
