Great-grandma Esther is pretty in pink

I absolutely love this picture of my great-grandma Esther taken in the 1940′s. I was never lucky enough to meet her and know very little about her life but when I look at this picture, I feel a sense of warmth and kindness emanating from her. Her laughing eyes , rosy cheeks and timid smile shine through this vintage picture my Mother let me have of her. I have no idea what the original colors of her dress and makeup are (maybe blue with white dots?) but it doesn’t really matter. As much as I’m an Instagram lover, it just doesn’t quite match an original vintage photo.

PS: On a completely different note, I haven’t blogged in so long but I’m going to do my best to post regularly from now on.
