Outside the house.

I relish the days we leave the house and go outdoors. The sunlight, fresh air, and wind do something to liven my soul. All the worry about to-dos and lists dissolves away in the reverie of the moment. I think it's something we all need. To get caught up in the moment -- not living for tomorrow, but living for today.

And can I get a big applause for film grain? The stuff is magical. I want to sprinkle it over all of my photos like sparkle dust. If that even makes sense. Forgive my absence of mind. It's been a gloriously lazy Sunday.

    1. Yes, I did! She had never been there before, so she fell in love with the spot as soon as we got there. ;)

  9. This is so beautiful. Your pictures are awesome. And I love how you post pictures of Michael. If I dared to with Micah, he would probably chew my head off.

    Anyways, I agree, it's nice to be away from the home, to let your careworn little soul soar.

    And on the excited side... I have a plan for Napua's b'day. I'll email you guys about it, but Napua's birthday is the 28th, just so you know. Yeah, you were pretty off. "How shocking!" (in the way Caroline Bingley says)

    Love,
    Rebekah

    1. Thanks, dear! And I'm surprised myself that he let me post it, but I do always have to ask permission beforehand. ;) Hah.

      YAY! Email me already, goodness! I'm waiting; oh, and I am rather mortified that my guess was so far off. At least I have more time to get the presents together, though. ;)

      Email me!
