Spring is here in Okinawa!  Carmen and I met at this gorgeous field of sunflowers on a sunny morning for some maternity pictures.    Some of you may know Carmen as the illustrator of the local children’s book Takako and the Great Typhoon. For anyone who might be interested, the books can be found at the Kids Cottage on Camp Lester and the Army Gift Shop on Torii Station…if you don’t have one yet you’ll love it!  But back to the photos–I couldn not have wished for a more perfect morning or a more beautiful mom-to be…sigh…
