Photo Wednesday 39




This is how we found Brown Bear, Yellow Bear, and Beloved when we returned to our rooms after dinner last week in Washington. For some reason the way housekeeping posed the three of them just cracks me up. I also love seeing their dear, worn faces, because they are such a snapshot of right now in our lives.

    I too love how hotel housekeepers posed our boys’ precious stuffed animals over the years. I always imagined that it was done by someone who has kids and gets it. In this case, that someone could tell that brown bear and yellow bear are important members of your family, and that they were probably a little at odds in these strange surroundings, and were wondering when you’d be back!

    One time our Ian left a precious teddy bear behind. The inn sent it back to us, wrapped in a little towel. Like it needed a bit of comforting in transit. Completely sweet.

    I love it that the bears look like they are doing yoga! 🙂

    Its probably a sign of how beloved yellow bear is that he appears to another brown bear in the photos 😉

    I loved when I first saw it and love this post. Those three can travel with us anywhere.

    Love. And love that you captured it. Random acts of kindness. . .

    This made me laugh right out loud – it is also indicative of where we are right now, too!
