This last weekend we celebrated Ryan’s birthday, and this is a little taste of the what the Pacific NW is offering this season. Whew! So much beauty in so many places!
Today is my dear husband’s 30th birthday. He is a testimony of God’s goodness to us all. A three-time cancer survivor, the one who has untapped depth beyond his years. He’s coming into his own and is finally willing to engage in the value of life’s events in how they’ve changed him; how they’ve grow him. I’m so excited about what’s happening and so thankful that my wagon is hitched to his. I really really like this guy, and I’m better because of him.
No better way to have a morning than to wake up to a friendly kitty, kiss the husband, swim for a half hour, and head to a farmer’s flower market for this season’s stunning offerings! Hope you enjoy the beauty that shows something of its creator.
On days like today, even though everything outside is bursting forth, we are still dealing with only varying shades of gray and varying barometer ratings on rain versus mist versus a general heavy feeling of humidity. SO, I must add some early morning shots still illuminated by only the glow of light, and enjoy the cheer of the happy pink popping off the page!
This is a beautiful couple with a beautiful story. The surprising features of this wedding include: Pheasant feathers, Western Hemlock tree trunks (schlepped out of the Alaskan woods by yours truly, yours truly’s marvelous husband, and yours truly’s greatest friend), and drawer pulls! Yep, drawer pulls. They were the cherry on top for this wedding to all who got close enough to enjoy them. If you look really, really hard, you might be able to see a cameo appearance in Lindsay’s up-close shot. What can I say? I was inspired!
These four pictures encapsulate the entire trip. Everything we touched was gorgeous. All that we smelled was sumptuous. New friends. Loads of inspiration. What an incredible experience!
