The Transitions of Summer

This has been a summer full of transitions: Moving from Illinois to Minnesota, but still selling a house in Illinois (that should be wrapped up this month), my Dad passing away, traveling almost every weekend for a month and a half…

Taking a bit of time alone throughout this whole time and connecting with loved ones and God has helped me stay (mostly) steady throughout this time!

Oh, and lots of walks…

Here’s some peaceful images that have helped me transition well this summer:

Swirls and Other Spring Colors

The other photos are here to deliver some springtime shades and images. Enjoy! Continue reading

California Love

I feel loved when people feed me; the love that arrived yesterday was in the form of California citrus!

My mother in law sent us a box of lemons and tangerines that she picked from her backyard in California, and it was waiting on our snowy doorstep yesterday when I arrived home. The tangerines have a tang and sweetness that only tree-ripened fruit has, and the peel almost falls off. I’m about to start zesting lemons for a lemon cake, but first I had to share these photos with you.

Happy Friday!
