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.

sunday || Valentine's Day

freehand paper cut-out hearts, Valentine's Day text messages, not really getting dressed, clean sheets, laughter, watching the dog with his new toy, squirrels leaping in the trees, tuning pages in a new book, red suspenders, tiding up the laundry room and him, home an extra night. . .
