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.

thursday || week 45

for a day at home, candles flickering and rain falling • for the smell of fresh bread as it bakes in the oven • for tomatoes in November and loads of laundry folded and put away • for music and then quiet and knowing when both are needed • for stepping back and stepping forward • for weekend plans and the glass of wine i am about to have • oh, and for butter and watching it melt into this warm bread and how good that first bite was

gratitudes. . .
