Ye Olde Northwest

We do love the Northwest, and Tillamook ice cream, and sleeping babies, and babies who behave in their car seat for hours on end (though there is a definite limit to this). I know, I know, just pictures of us. Self indulgent? Perhaps. But then again, as I was taking pictures of Carl showing Remy the ocean for the first time, a lady walking by stopped and said, 'let me take a picture of all three of you together.' She did, it's a little blurry, but I keep thinking about what she said to me as she took the picture, 'you are making memories, this is such a good time in life, remember it.' Sometimes I can stand how incredible it is that I am taking pictures that Remy will someday look back at while we are all old and sitting on a couch together somewhere. I keep thinking, I know something about what I am doing/wearing/looking is totally nerdy and will be laughed about in 20 years, but I can't quite put my finger on what that is, and after all, I do laugh about pictures of my yester-year mom, but there is also part of me that is in love with her young, naive goodness, and I'd like to think becoming a mom has done something of that to me.

Okay, please don't think me a creepy stalker. :) I just linked her from Sassy Scoops, and we have been emailing through etsy. Anyway, we have WAY too much in common and common friends (Natalie, Yan, etc). Such a tiny and small world we live in.

Thankful to have been touched by your art. xoxo
