big sur

awe and silence
rain showers, sun showers, monsoons, and mud slides
long drives, beach combing, whale watching, walking among the coast and the redwoods
relaxing, reading and yoga
just me, just perfect

our family gingerbread house this year


no place I would rather be

...than in Aspen in the fall


the paddle

it is moments like this...
when your three-year old is magical
and parenting is pure joy


among the redwoods

the size
the silence
the wildlife
just wow

the fog though...

at Stinson Beach
there was more fog than sun
and that was ok
we built a fire
and watched the fog roll in
and roll out
and when it was clearer
we watched whales
...magical weather really.
