the moment we looked each other in the eyes



we've gotten used to living in the same woods by now. but we still take note of each other and greet each other with ears flopping (they're good at that, i'm still practicing) and a soft "guten morgen!" (i'm convinced all animals secretly speak german too).

joining soulemama with a favourite moment of this week, just can't help but add a few words to share along with it. have a great weekend!

Hi Simone...you captured a beautiful moment. I've been reading The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver and she describes a really similar moment on the 2nd or 3rd page between one of the characters and a little okapi in the middle of a jungle. They both lock eyes for one special moment.

This little deer is so pretty. We sometimes get little deers coming into our garden but they are monkjack ones and nothing like as pretty... I still love them though.

That is one great moment..we see them on our walks in the national parks here, we say hi, don't mind us, just passing through, since they live there and we don't... lovely.

Lovely shot! We have deer who come through our yard as well, but I've never seen one so close and personal. How innocent the little one is!

Oh what a beautiful photo and the cuteest little deer! I so long for living in a sweet little cottage (or bigger house for that matter:)) in the woods, with the nature just around the corner. Have a nice Friday! Love K

such a lovely moment!
we live out in the country and get our fair share of visitors- but I've never been able to snap a photo in fear that they will run off if I move.

What a stunningly beautiful moment and what an incredible moment to capture! Thanks for sharing it with all of us! :)

Our moment comes from our trip to the farm to get our weekly CSA and flower share. Our weekly flower share lead to some fun with math (sorting, counting, etc)!
