Sarah Schnakenberg | Portraits | New Waverly Texas | March 2014

“Dear old world', she murmured, 'you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

On the day before Sarah's 14th birthday this March, the air was frozen. It had rained all day, and then it froze and rained again, the wind was full of ice and it stuck in our lungs and held onto our coats and hands like kisses. We had been bundled up inside all day, watching tv, mulling through another day of school work and the storm halted and the sun broke out. We threw on our boots and ran out the door as soon as we could and took these for her birthday. It was fun. (Cold! But fun.)
