Sunday News

... nothing to say, but what an utterly beautiful morning so far. This is our first day off in 2 weeks and it feels great. :) Today, we will finish adding tile to our entrance way, add a new shower system to one of the bathrooms, relax, and simply enjoy our day.

(Perhaps, I can bat my lashes and look adorable enough to have Stefan make his delicious chicken gumbo!) :)

Oh and, over the last week or so, I fell in love with Benjamin Moore paints and the Wooster paint brush! Haha! ;)

Beauty is an experience

all one can do is cry." —Cherilyn Ferroggiaro - du Bois

Summer slips past my lips

(An image I shot in Carmel, California)

What an extremely long month May was--our businesses booming, moving in, gardening, tiling the entrance way, graduations, family, a trip to Atlantic City that fell through, admiring the huge peonies that grow beside our garage, laughing at the rabbits that ate our eggplants, fixing the lawn mower, waiting--always waiting, movies and popcorn, the bird's nest on our front porch as the mother feeds her young, driving--always driving, love, pulling sandstone from the basement for our waterfall, and so much more. Long, but meaningful.

We have not had time to go out and shoot much lately, but hopefully soon. I need to do it for peace of mind--for my inner being. If I do not take some time to get out into nature soon, summer will slip by, and before I know it, it is gone. One thing that just made me smile to myself is that that means autumn will be here. And we all know how autumn touches deeply, my heart. :) I love, love it!

The first thing I thought of this morning was how I wished that today was Sunday, and we could sleep in. :) I am on my 2nd cup of coffee, smiling (although sleepy), and planning on getting up to get ready to go to the job site. Stefan and I discussed our employees and which ones stood out as exceptional, and we spoke on standing beside the one you love through anything. It was a peaceful conversation, full of dreams and the knowledge that we two can always get through things together. That is a good thing. He is beautiful.

Anyway, I need to go for now. I will write more later tonight. Enjoy your day.


By the way, I am so backed up in my email and messages, but plan on getting to them very soon. :)

Where color resists erasure

(An image I shot in northern, California)

You speak and my body trembles, blessing the sunset
that illuminates brilliantly against my skin--everything
brushing everything,

where adoration clings to the hem of my dress,
where my heart is made of infant rainbows,

... mostly, a part of you.

Beauty Graces the Pages,...

(A spring image I shot)

... with language meant for two.

And if I should ever cease to speak,
I hope you find all that you have ever
needed, deep within my eyes.

Because, when I look at you, words like
"Love", tangle sweetly on the tip of
my tongue,...

... and all I manage to do is smile.
