You Capture - Warmth

What do you mean I'm late? Just because You Capture went up a day early and I'm posting a day later than the old You Capture day? Okay, I'm late but better late than never right? I hope it's right because lately I seem to be cruising on some 'late' style itinerary.

I had all kinds of ideas for warmth this week and none of them really panned out. However as I searched the pictures I'd taken I came across this series that said warmth to me. It's about emotional warmth and it came about when we were in Louisville to babysit for our three Louisville grandchildren. Our daughter enlisted out help because she was planning to surprise her husband with a Valentine weekend getaway.

He had no idea that we were there to babysit when she handed him the empty suitcase. He definitely looked surprised (in a warm kind of way).

Then he found the card tucked inside. I can't imagine what he was thinking but I'm sure they were warm thoughts.

You can see his anticipation as he opened the card and I'm pretty sure he was feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.

Then he read the card that said 'pack your suitcase because dinner tonight is NOT in Louisville'. (And this is definitely a warm smile.)

And finally, it makes me feel warm and happy inside when I see his face filled with an expression that combines happiness, anticipation, affection, and most of all warmth.

It might seem like a stretch but this series says warmth to me. To see more conventional warmth and maybe some not so conventional, visit Beth at Ishouldbefoldinglaundry.


  1. What a great surprise - and series of photos! :)

  2. I love this warmth and I wish it was me that it happened to.

  3. I think it's a great capture of warmth, it may not be the typical kind, but you definitely catpured some warmth there! Loved the series!

  4. What a great idea. I love the way his expressions evolve. Good captures!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
