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 || thanksgiving day

day 329 || gratitude for. . . 
a slow day of cooking, lots of help in the kitchen, learning ways to make our traditions hers, laughter and so much good food, text messages from those who were not with us, games and  relaxing in front of the TV with a good movie, respecting others boundaries but also learning a very valuable lesson about mine, deleting a few more things off my extensive list of "oh, this will make you happier", because of overthinking, him and the dog, especially him, even if the dog's ears are softer, and this beautiful life we have built together,
