a tribute.

ImageJesslyn: My oldest sister. Beautifully compassionate and better with words than anyone I know. ImageElliot my one and only nephew (for now). He does this with everything. Grass, sand, plants, dirt, water. He loves the earth. ImageKari: Sister # 2. She is secretly fiesty and has a heart big enough to change the whole world. ImageI do exist. ImageMy Momma: She is absolutely stunning in every way. A wonderful mother, grandmother and teacher of life. Her strength is complimented with a willing vulnerability that has taught me how to be both tough and compassionate. ImageImageJesslyn & Nephew # 2!ImageA tired boy and his lovely Auntie Kari

best friends and big hats.

Today I am overjoyed to share with you something that has been a long time in the making. This is the lovely Jennifer. She is my best friend through and through and every summer we dream about having a ‘big hat day.’ This has become intensely more difficult seeing as we live on opposite sides of the country, but it has finally happened. Here are two silly ladies, both old and young at heart, on an adventure to find the perfect picnic in our enormous hats. ImageImageImageImageImageImageGetting to this bridge was a triumph to say the least. I had been by bike and foot many times. Who knew getting there by car would lead to so much trouble. It was worth it.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageWe finished the night with some delicious infused drinks at Grove.ImageImageThis girl. You should know her. She’s great.
