it’s monday which means another edition of #drseussmonday. we have a whole new month ahead of us, so i thought it fitting to draw from one of my very favorites, oh, the places you’ll go! to start off april. so get out there, killer. today is your day. take down this monday!
happy dr. seuss monday!
happy birthday to the one and only, dr. seuss! today he would’ve been 109 years old.
it’s no secret i love dr. seuss. i quote him whenever i feel necessary, which is often. it probably sounds as if i don’t read much else beside him, and to be completely honest, as of late, that’s kind of true. i’m trying to push my love dr. seuss on to evelyn and theo, so we read a lot of him. i love everything dr. seuss, but as of late, “oh, the places you’ll go!” has been a favorite. it’s actually really inspiring, without being a heavy inspiring, if that makes sense. his books really resonate with me, not only because they are fantastic but also largely because i grew up with them and they give me a slice of my childhood back. his books helped give me an early love of reading which continues to this day. i SO hope that evelyn and theo come to love dr. seuss as much as i do.
in honor of his birthday, ev and i decided to take some pictures of her holding some of his books. i got swept away in the moment, loving the images of evelyn, in our bed, reading (well, paraphrasing) these books out loud to herself. i took a lot of photos. as much as styled shoots on a beach with perfect hair are great, i think these types of in-home, intimate photos are my favorite. in honor of the great rhyming man, i’ll let this post be about him, but i plan on posting more of evelyn’s pics later…
happy birthday, and thank you, dr. seuss!
