American Boy

A little different from my usual but Happy Memorial Day for not just Americans but for everyone who knows Veterans and the stories of their past; appreciate them for their sacrifice of time for it was ultimately for you.

It's funny, as far as I can remember I always joked that I was naturally patriotic; with red hair, pale skin, and blue eyes I used to think I was pretty cool... Hahaha but that's one of the reasons I chose my brother here was because he has almost the same coloring. ^_^

I had such a wonderful idea in place of this image however when it came down to this little man to take a picture, it was a complete failure. Maybe another day - I just cornered him into take this shot since he hates it ;)

Also, getting to know some of you, listening to your "secrets" you posted on my Print Giveaway has been absolutely amazing. I completely look forward to a new post to see what you say! You have surprised me in many things, but also there have been words that I entirely related to. So thank you so very much for sharing them with me!

    I love this, the pure simplicity of it, and his eyes and freckles are lovely.
    It reminds me a bit of the guy in Homeland (if you've seen it), which is quite fitting with your theme.
