I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Baker.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.

A glimpse into my weekend. . .  

Time spent with the birthday boy. Pizza, fancy drinks, wine, laughter and so much fun. Violet balsamic vinegar. The first trip to the farmers market. Texting back and forth with Jordan. Good news for Justin. The Easter Bunny leaving a basket here for Cannon. Reading the Burgess Boys. A new picture for the wall in our trailer. Blue sky and a crisp morning. Sleeping in. 

Today he is 32, where did the time go? It is the first time his birthday has fallen on Easter!

Happy Birthday Brandon. . . Love, Ma 

what did you notice this weekend?
