Weekly Gratitudes

Summer.  Wonderful summer, even though it’s winding down, even though it’s been a bit cooler than usual and even though it’s flown by a the speed of light.  I’m choosing to savor these last days, enjoy the longer days and make the most of each moment.
Paint.  I am finally painting my kitchen wall that has been waiting for me since June.  It’s like the room took a deep breath, pictures to come soon.
Weddings and new neighbors.  We had some great friends get married over the weekend in a small, private ceremony.  I was privileged to be there taking photos.  It was most beautiful, sweetest wedding I have ever been to.  Ever.
Here’s the bride with Cayden after the ceremony at an open house celebration.  The coolest part is that they live down the street from us, and we are feeling so very blessed to have some very cool newlyweds down the street.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. -Earl Nightingale


  1. Love that capture of Shari and Cayden.
    I continue to be in awe so all that God has orchestrated.

  2. We were at a wedding this weekend too & will be moving this month, having the newlyweds be two doors down! I'm excited about this, since I suspect having these friends around will remind me of the freshness I felt when we were first married, entering a new phase of life. AJ & I have pacted to be "newlyweds" forever. :)


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
