Hey Melissa, I met you last year at Wolf Trap, I was with Victoria, Marie, and Georgia. I just had to tell you that the pic you titled The Dance is just amazing. You got that shot at the perfect moment. I enjoy looking at your blog and your pics, thanks and enjoy the sweet life over there! Katie from Texas
