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 || thankful

day 26
there have been years when the date slipped right by me
but for some reason, this year, it has been on my mind. . . 
14 years, and there are days now that i actually forget
and then there are days that i still fret and worry. 
but today i rowed almost 8,000 meters, we walked the dog
around the lake and then we went out to dinner. 
i felt very much alive and so thankful i am here to mark this day, 
thankful for this life we have and the normalcy of beautiful everyday moments. 

friday || ordinary beauty
