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.

friday || week 15

day 99
this gift of summer weather has been such a treat
today we planned out the new deck, deciding on brick
instead of wood, just in case we ever want to park on it again
i planted sugar snap peas and a few strawberries, my hands in the dirt
while my head anticipated and made some plans for the gathering coming up
later i mowed the lawn (he emptied the bag and trimmed)
Justin called with good news (a second interview)
and we ate our first real meal outside
