I'm consistently good at being inconsistent with social media, blogging and putting myself out there. I reeeaaaallly need to change that...
evening at the creek (or that time SGP thought he had a leech on his leg. double eww!).
we enjoy spending our evenings like this. and i'm pretty sure marls barkley is in his glory splashing in the water and retrieving sticks. i swear he smiles.
this summer feels a little different. sky works now and isn't always available to join us. it makes the times he comes along even that much more special.
surrounded by the magical beauty of hard luck canyon. every sight and sound inspires. senses are awakened.
mother nature is our greatest teacher, isn't she?
us, with our sun-kissed shells, on an afternoon adventure.
under nature's canopy,
leaping from rock to rock. feeling textures on the bottom of our soles
and cool water trickling between our fingers.
each moment a tangible piece of our story.
lump in my throat. so much to take in.
light in our eyes and our hearts. smiles and questions. skipping rocks.
a quest for the perfect stick for you.
gifting a piece of your heart to nature.
these are the best kind of memories.
. . . . .
next up is the beautifully talented hannah mayo. her photos and love letters to her boys always make my heart smile.

bud and bean,
every spring i look forward to the sweet scent of blossoms, from our two trees, drifting through the air.
one tree is sturdy and beautiful with balanced branches. abundant with delicate white blossoms that float away with the wind.
it reminds me of you, skylar. bright. strong. sensitive.
the other tree is sprightly and colorful. branches growing in different directions. twisting and turning, but always reaching for the sun.
it reminds me of you, ava. delightful. full of personality. spirited.
grateful for you two. our roots. our love.
love, mom xoxo
