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.

tuesday || cheating

day 45 || Valentines Day
i did not take a photo today, 
not even with my phone. . .  
in fact, the dog is not even home, but
staying with his mom and dad because
we are leaving tomorrow for a few days. . . 
i actually used this very same photo last year, 
and i think it is just as cute today! 

i am not putting to much into this, 
but rather allowing myself a bit of cheating. 

wednesday || the ocean

monday || the pugs
