Golden

Golden light on this beauty and I walk in and see.   Ohhhhh!!! Don’t move, I tell her. 

and she gives me what I want.  I take the only shot of that Thanksgiving feast. 

I put Nikon down and think about what’s next.  There was a wedding shower to give in two days. 

I forget about the shot. . . grateful our Brown eyed beauty & her new husband were with us.  

Novemeber 2017

And it’s funny how things work. . . Tomorrow’s her birthday and today I stumble through Lightroom and discover it. 

I pause and miss her hard . . . like I miss that Philosopher husband of hers.

Stillness

It’s been pretty quiet around here. . . with our boys all grown men and married. 

Liz and Henry

the girl who loves music said SHE DOESN’T LIKE IT.  There is stillness in the air & it’s taking a little bit to get used to. 

all our kids say. . . we aren’t used to stillness.  But, honestly . . . I think I could embrace it. 

It’s been an amazing time raising those boys to men. . .  loving their friends as they first moved into our home and then forever our hearts. 

The next chapter brings many exciting things and I silently think . . . BRING IT.

Today marks the Visionaries birthday . . . it was cold and rainy and the day seemed right.  I don’t forget his last words to me “TAKE PICTURES”  &  I do.
