Entering Mandy’s photography contest on a picture that makes me happy. This is a picture from a family beach vacation in 2006.

This picture makes me happy because it shows a mother’s love. There is a transcendental moment while witnessing a clear example of motherly love that can [unfortunately] be missed. Here’s a time when I caught it. This moment, while making me happy in itself, combines several other sources of happiness for me: my best friend, her hair (separate items), my 5 month old son, new experiences, and the beach.

It’s beautiful, and beauty makes me happy.
