The Alkandari clan loves being snapped, so we’re always looking for the next great photo op. So last Thursday I took my watercolor sketchbook to our weekly family lunch. I wanted to match my girls with various relatives, whether by looks or color combos or just a certain je ne sais quoi. I wanted them to be involved in the choice, and I must say they all seemed to pick the right girl for them.
