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 31

day 211
they are not even fully moved in, and boxes sit full
ready to be unpacked in most of the rooms.
i watch as they work together, talking about what should go where, 
and think, isn't that half the fun?
some of their friends show up on bikes, growlers in their bike panniers to celebrate
and to welcome them home, we sit on their huge deck and have a few beers
and i am so full of gratitude because i can see what a strong
community of friends they have, see just how happy they are,
and i feel blessed and so thrilled for them.

oh, and Basil? he feels right at home
