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.

tuesday || brandon's birthday

day 96 || grateful for . . . 
waking up to a late night text message, i slept through, with a fish story and a birthday thank you, time to gather my thoughts before getting up, thinking about his birth and almost being able to feel him in my arms, noticing the humming birds darting back and forth all day long, a trip to the pet store where everyone stopped to pet the dog, talking to the birthday boy and later thinking about the man he has become, an afternoon walk with the dog and then a quick stroll though the yard, amazed at what is coming up, phone conversations with friends and support staff and understanding just how fortunate i am . . .
