Trees of Transition

Planting seeds of hope throughout our world through sharing photography and thoughts on teaching, cooking, and life transitions.

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
