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 52

day 358
he did his yearly ritual and went out shopping (just for a few things) 
silly man. . . i stayed home and made shortbread bars
the dog and i walked between rain and snow and hail showers
but didn't get far before he wanted to turn back
i still need to wrap presents
but there is time for that tomorrow
the kids will spend tomorrow with the girl's families
and head down on Christmas day
i am grateful it works out this way! 

saturday || Christmas Eve

thursday || week 51
