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 47

day 323 || gratitude for . . . 
almond nog in my morning latte, Christmas music on Spotify, an hour or so at the river with the dog and him, laughter and beauty and playfulness, my iPhone, feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in a very long time, movie night with red wine and snacks and him, a "what can i bring"  email from my new daughter-in-law, feeling extremely blessed and loved.
