ADVANCED- AOL Community Photo Challenge-LOVE

AOL Community Challenge-LOVE

With Valentine's day upon us this month, our next challenge was suggested by Betty.
Of course, this can be of anything that represents love.  There are many forms of love, so this should be an easy challenge. 
Love is all around find it, capture it, or just use a photo from the past, that says it!


Best Friends


This photograph was taken last summer, of my daughter and her best friend, Elana.  They are as close as sisters (without all the squabbling, of course) and are as attached as they seem to be here!  It is a rare weekend indeed, that these two do not hook up somehow.  They spend hours on the phone, giggling and singing and sharing their secrets.  I LOVE how close they are, and they LOVE one another like only the best of friends can.  I'm hoping for a lifetime.

Now that is absolutely a wonderful picture! It's wonderful that your daughter can have a friend that close. I am honestly not that close with anyone myself. I have my boyfriend but it's not the same. My son is to young.. although, I do my best to be his friend, mommys just aren't best friend material at that age. As for my real life friends, I am not very personal with them. hope you have a great week and you did a wonderful job on this pic!! -Missy

That's a great picture!  It looks like something you'd see in a "Coffee table book."  ~~Kath~~

Wow that's an awesome picture! You should frame it and put it on your wall!
I had a friend like that and we still keep in touch. I'm sure they will.

Yes, another perfect entry.   What a great idea to use this speaks well of love.    Somehow I think that if I knew you when we were their ages, we'd be just like 'em!

That kind of love comes along so rarely that we have to cherish it. Kids friendships can be so pure, so enjoyable to watch. Great job capturing the essence of that love!

I've always enjoyed kids at that age. My son had (and still has) a best friend as a young teen and they were like peanut butter and jelly.
