It’s about time to push send on this gallery. 😍 Hope Monday is treating you good this week!
I asked her to pick an oddball thing on the wall she wanted to take a picture by. There were lotus flowers, stars, and other “nice” things and she points to that onion face thing with horns coming out of its chin. 😳 she’s awesome.
Sweet sweet sweet dreams.
Wild and free.
I’ve known Jill since high school. We cheered together and one thing that drew me to her was her infectious smile and down to earth sense of humor. It made me SO happy to see her with a guy that brings out that joy even more and a little girl that seriously brings the light out in both of them. Marriage isn’t always about two people coming together, sometimes it includes a dog, or a daughter, or a son, or the whole family joining as one force.
2 year old vibes. This is what I think of you and that fancy camera. 😆
Alexis came to me and asked if we could take some more engagement photos. I saw them back in 12 degree weather. And...yeah...spring is their season.
Our family lost someone this past week. A great joy of my life was knowing him and calling him my Uncle. I’ve been reading the countless Facebook posts by former college athletes he coached, friends, and family...and man...he encouraged so many. He was the best kind. Even in fighting this battle with cancer for the past year he was always making jokes, lighting the room, making others smile, and just making the world a better place. I hope that doesn’t sound cliche. I don’t want any prayers sent my way for the loss. I want my Aunt to feel ok, my cousins to not hurt, his parents and sister to get through this. I know time is how. I know so many of you have felt loss from people who’ve been taken too early from cancer. We all planned on walking for Project Purple on Saturday to help raise awareness for pancreatic cancer at Holmes Lake...and I’m still planning on walking in honor of him. I’m so happy I knew you Brent. Felt your light, heard your laughter. You brought so much joy to our family, the Grote Float will never be the same, I know that. You did a good job though. In life. Thank you for that.
There are things we do consciously and things we do in the moment and that’s what I love about creating. It happens when you get lost in letting things flow. When you let go. When you release yourself. When maybe something bigger than yourself is flowing through you. I would remember looking back at artwork when I would actually do artwork, and thing wow, I didn’t even mean to do that but that’s amazing and it works so well, how did that happen? Totally forgot those stars were there but they are flowing out from this couple like magic.
