This is my favorite picture. This picture, although blurry, stood out to me the minute I saw it. This is joy encompassed. This was one of the first events my family took my nephew to and we were having a regular uncle–nephew moment of me tossing him up in the air (the bow tie was just a bonus). He was grinning from ear to ear as he got tossed in the air and caught each time, his first time experiencing anything like that over and over again. The expression on his face showed me that there was literally nowhere else he’d rather be and he couldn’t possibly be having any more fun. This was joy in one snapshot.
