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 Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

the boys dropped the boat off
and we did a bit of shopping
we had chips and margaritas
waiting for B to get off work
then stopped by The Real McCoy
and had a fancy cocktail
and met up with K
we all then headed to dinner
where we laughed and ate way too much
my mama heart got a good fix
