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.

wednesday || pony packs

day 25
i see them lined up in front of the grocery store
and i immediately start to dig out my phone
as i cross the parking lot. i see a colorful, tangible sign of spring, 
while memories of my boys calling it pony pack fever, 
with dread in their voices. i always let them pick one out
of their own to plant. 
color my world i think, as i head inside to by groceries. 

thursday || thankful

tuesday || welcome
