Sweet Sixteen

It's my sister Elisabeth's (Lissie's) sixteenth birthday today! I feel like she's an Elisabeth in these pictures...Princess Elisabeth, Queen Elisabeth, Beautiful Elisabeth. In these photos, she's wearing a dress (not the dress) my mom wore on her wedding day. Wish I had a picture of that!

I took these photos at a palace about 15 minutes away from my parent's house on one of the first days we were in Germany. It was easily my favorite photo location from our trip, and I kept going back to take more pictures, but the leaves were never quite as beautiful as they were on this day.








Happy sixteenth birthday, Elisabeth! I love you, and I love you!!
