Trees of Transition

Comfort for people going through life transitions by sharing thoughts, photos, cards, and recipes.

Some of Our Silly Engagement Photos


Last October, we had only gotten a few hours of sleep because we had been babysitting for a friend, so we were maybe a little sillier than usual when we took our sunrise and beyond engagement photos. I’m glad Ryn Manby, our brilliant photographer gave us some of the silly proofs as well!

Mary: "I LOVE being with you!" Stephen: "I know..."

Mary: “I LOVE being with you!” Stephen: “I know…”

Stephen: “What IS that smell?” Mary (keep smiling) “What smell?”


Nose to nose is the best.

Nose to nose is best.

Mary: "Stephen, your pull is SO strong!" Stephen: "Uhh...actually it's a train."

Mary: “Stephen, your pull is SO strong!” Stephen: “Uhh…actually it’s a train.”

Stephen: “I didn’t realize you loved hearts so much!” Mary: “Yeah.”

Mary: "I love it when you kiss my nose!"

Mary: "This is so COOL!" Stephen: "Haven't you seen leaves before?"

Mary: “This is so COOL!” Stephen: “Haven’t you seen leaves before?”

Stephen: “Ohhhhhh…..”

“Let’s warm up our cold noses together.”

Life is better with you.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
