we remember them


































re-member us,
you who are living,
restore us, renew us.
speak for our silence.
continue our work.
bless the breath of life.
sing of the hidden patterns.
weave the web of peace.

-Judith Anderson


(my favorite photo: grace and the headstone above her with the little dog. 
hopefully, i'm remembered and celebrated in this same sweet way. love.)

grace































my sweetest little girl turned four.
she makes our lives both bigger and smaller all at the same time.
she is the brightest part of us.

my ride




























there are those moments when a color catches your eye and you instantly fall in love. and you think to yourself, if this bus picked me up and took me to work everyday... i'd be the happiest girl! it was the most amazing faded pea green charteuse and it just made me grin from ear to ear.
