TWENTY FOURTEEN.

sleepingbabyTwenty fourteen. If I had to choose one word to describe this past year, it would be full. Full in that I found myself saying yes to more of just about everything. Full in that I blinked and we are back here again, an end and a beginning. So full in fact that halfway through the year my body not so subtly reminded me that time to recharge is vital. Looking back, I have to say my favorite moment of the year is a surprise. A perfect beach day in October with a setting sun, still ocean, and the opportunity for one last swim. A moment of pure appreciation. For so many things. Cheers to that my friends.

TWENTY SIX.

Here we are again, another year older. This time with pie. Once again, I cannot be thankful enough for the love I feel every day. And especially today. This is also my 201st blog post, which probably isn’t very impressive in the blogging world, but it is many posts beyond what I ever thought I would create. Cheers to twenty-six. May you be filled with many beautiful moments. And many beautiful photographs to remember them by.

A CAPITOL DAY.

uscapitolSpent a grey, fall day at the U.S. Capitol today for some family portraits. A very surreal experience being there during a government shutdown. It’s hard to ignore the beauty of this stunning structure and all of it’s intricate architecture, no matter what is going on inside.

What a wonderful experience to finally see the inside of the building that rests just around the corner from the place I call home these days.
