the day Leia won

Her brothers were playing Star Wars. They got in proper attire while she picked out her own Princess Leia costume. I followed them to the field, it took her a while, but she finally joined us.

Luke Skywalker fell asleep. Obi Wan guarded him from Darth Vader. Princess Leia didn’t care about the battle waging between her brother and dad, all she wanted was to stand on the wood spool. They weren’t about to let her.

Real life….so much better than what I could script or pose!
