Sunrise



Devastating floods, riots, wildfires raging out of control, a political stage gone mad. Incomprehensible news every day that I feel compelled both to be aware of and to turn away from. In these quiet, early in the day moments I look for hope, and peace, and am deeply grateful.

Runs in the family


Dean and Maddie, celebrating her 5th birthday, practicing silly faces. Because that's how we roll.

Olympic decadence

Dean and I left work early to get him to his dentist appointment, and when we got home we just plopped down in front of the tv with cold drinks to indulge in some men's beach volleyball coverage. It's been a brutally hot week and this felt like the biggest treat ever -- ahhhh.

The giant

Grow things from seed. Grow something, at least, from a seed. It is a never-endingly miraculous thing.

Color, texture


Morning stroll around the garden before leaving for work is one of my favorite things about summer.

Finally figured out...


...where my shoes were hiding. They hid themselves out here on Saturday and have been enjoying life outdoors ever since; I was sorry to have to end the party.

Practicing...

...the jump for joy; camera phone isn't responsive enough to catch the exact moment of heel-click.
