Sometimes it seems like she stepped out of a different era– a softer, sweeter more innocent time. At ten, Zoey has no interest in tween trends, she loves her dolls, her old-fashioned stories, tea parties and gorgeous white dresses with blue satin sashes.
Adored by all who know her, Zoe delights us with her slight British accent and absolute lack of guile. She begged her mother for this dress, reasoning that it would be the perfect Easter/recital/farewell gown. I agree (but I always agree with buying extravagant dresses).
For more generations than I know, my mother’s family carried a tradition of naming daughters, Zoe, Ruth, Zoe, Ruth…
she wears her name perfectly.
lovely little girl…may i ask where you took the pictures???
She is so beautiful. We need these girls to stay little for longer. Love her truly fitting name.
P.S. it looks warm there? Jealous.
We adore Zoey! The day we moved, and our Annie could no longer be Zoey’s close friend, was a sad day indeed. Zoey is beautiful inside and out!
Austen, The Bronte Sisters? She looks like she could walk right out of one of their books. She is beautiful Michelle. And the photos of all those sleepy-eyed cousins nestling into the same bed? Precious. What a joyful stay. Love you!

…like she stepped right out of the pages of ‘the secret garden.’
lovely pics as always.
She is so lovely and delightful! The dress suits her perfectly.
Gorgeous girl…dress…photos everything.
Though you may exaggerate my good qualities, you are not exaggerating Zoey’s. She is everything you said. I’m blessed to have her as a daughter.I am also blessed to have a sister who takes beautiful photos of my children. And Zoey is so blessed to have an Aunt who writes such a lovely and fitting tribute to her. She’s already read this post multiple times.
Gorgeous girl! Only 10?? Exquisite photos. How lucky to have an Aunt like you to capture her natural beauty.
