Last thoughts: Close (the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge)

Having fun with Auntie Sue – © 2012 Karina Chapman

“However successful you are, there is no substitute for a close relationship. We all need them.” – Francesca Annis

As always, the Friday Edition combines a quote with a favorite photo. I tailor these to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme, which this week is “Close”.

Both of my girls love their Auntie Sue. Of course, she’s not really their Auntie; she’s actually their Godmother. However, even though she isn’t family by birth, we all refer to Auntie Sue as our “family of the heart” anyway.

As you can tell, she is as close to my girls as any auntie could ever be.

We love you, Auntie Sue!
