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.

saturday || week 51

day 352 || the tree
we headed out to cut the perfect tree
all of us bundled up, even the dog! 
he did the lights and i decorated
i put just about every ornament we own on the tree
some from my childhood and our first Christmas together
Christmas music played in the background and i might have cried a bit
happy tears, because we are so very blessed
later on, there were tacos and Star Wars on TV

sunday || week 51
