a vision.

"First a man creates a vision, then the vision creates him. 
For every man grows to be like the thing he loves."
 -Culbert Rutenber 

what do you see? who do you follow? what will you do? 

your vision for your future must be greater than your memories of the past. 
ill be back in a little while.....zambia is waiting.

boxing day.

ive figured it out. im a trinket hoarder. 
im moving out into something new and fresh and full of hope for the coming season. 
today is new. 
in the meantime, cardboard and bits of plastic and weird mugs from 6th grade and silly love notes to my moo and making too many trips to the dumpster in the triple digit heat....makes me wanna shoot something and then sleep off the exhausting nostalgia.

summer cometh.

first day of summer beckons a flood of memories and dreams and basking in sunlight.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

knot tied: canter's sneak peek.

this passed weekend, i made my way up north with my girls to be a part of my roomie's wedding in flagstaff......a stunning setting is an understatement. 
complete with more mason jars than ive ever seen and chandeliers to brighten our evening of dancing in the open tent, it was some good times. 
and i even snuck some of the groom's favorite cookies (his dessert choice for guests) in my clutch for a late night snack. 

speaking nature.

my nature is to communicate.
though not always in words. 
i fling glorious sunsets across the sky, 
day after day after day. 
I speak in the faces and voices of loved ones.
I delight you with a gentle breeze that refreshes.
