Now I'm briefly taking you from southern Tuscany to a park in Dallas, where I recently captured this shot of my granddaughters, Sasha (8) and Ashlyn (4). They're growing up way too fast. Just seems like yesterday Fred and I flew home from Majorca for Sasha's birth and from Shanghai for Ashlyn's. I so treasure each moment I get to spend with them. I love them so....much. Being a nana is pure joy.

    wonderful capture, Deb! I know the joy and feelings. My granddaughter just turned 1 yr. old. My daughter just sent me phone video of her walking.

    I love all the Tuscan shots as I can be with you and share the memories. But these shots are more important to me as they are one of my important links with the girls. Being with them so little is the major downside of an otherwise exciting career. Make sure to give them lots of kisses from Grandpa!
