after looking forward to the one year anniversary of documenting my adventure in life through a lens, i missed it.  a year and two days ago tucker and i brought merlyn home.  on the same day, i challenged myself to take a photo a day and share them with family that feels so far away.  while i did not successfully take a photo a day, i took more than enough on certain days to make up for the severe lack on others.

now, merlyn is about 110 pounds bigger (as tall as me when he stands on his hind legs) and i have learned over and over that i love photography.  i love having a moment frozen in time, and i love all the people in my life that also take photos forming such a beautiful creative space- ladies (sarah, rachel, stephanie, ashley) you inspire me.

thank you all for supporting my journey and encouraging me to open my eyes to the beauty of this world each and every day- when we look, no matter what circumstances exist, it is all really and truly beautiful.  and thank you for believing in me.

the vine borers crawled inside the squash plants

and ate them from the inside out.

this town crawled inside my understanding of hope

and set in afire leaving nothing but ash

(through which life springs forth anew- humbled and awry)
