During this most recent trip back home, I spent some time rummaging through old photo albums. Photo albums which mostly contained pictures of my mom from her childhood. She was such a beautiful child. I about died when I found these silhouettes. The artist had signed and dated them '60, which means she would have been 4 years old - Ruby's exact age. I was surprised at how much they actually resemble my Ruby. The copies and scans aren't nearly as beautiful as the originals, but ones I will treasure, nonetheless.
