I was talking with my sweetie about what I could photograph that was essential today. He was chilling on the couch after we had just gone for a glorious walk in the sunshine, and he just started smiling so sweetly and I realized that he is what is essential to me. Isn't he adorable? I just love him to bits. Interestingly, there was a local paper open beside him that says "Spring Essentials", and you can see the word "Essentials" in the photo. A happy accident.
