A Week (or two) In Photos

From top to bottom, it’s been a wonderful two weeks…

Our friends got married in the most beautiful way, with the most cakes I’ve ever seen, and the best best dancing of all :: I’ve had the pleasure of photographing several beautiful ladies recently – I truly believe that everyone should have lovely photos of themselves (that are not selfies…) :: our grapes slowly turn from sour to sweet, so many are hiding in that vine :: last of the summer yard and evenings spent playing chase :: and finally, our biggest went to school. All day every day. And even our littlest went to school, just not so often. It’s a good change :: I just love love fall

It’s been a lovely week, from top to bottom:

All the summer clothes are stained and little toes grow into new sizes of shoes :: soap in one and honey in the other, happy to support my friends and local businesses filling up jars :: a little friend that has been visiting our yard, eating the clover and leaving us ‘presents’ on the sidewalk :: the annual crab apple pick, so so many shaken off the tree and taken to a local restaurant – happy to pass them on :: celebrated our eight year anniversary! found this gem from when we were 18 and working together at a summer camp, where playing dress up and dropping people in the lake = young love :: I am loving this book, since canning intimidates me. Even if you don’t follow the recipes, the idea of small batches is wonderful ::

~ happiest long weekend to you! ~

From top to bottom,

I know these are weeds, but I avoid pulling them out because they bloom purple :: the sprinklers turned on for the hottest evenings, and if (when) we ever move, there will be a moment where I miss this archway covered in grape vines and this big lovely yard (work that it is…) :: hydrangeas always remind me of my friend S, over at calligraphy of east :: I don’t do that much photography ‘work’ anymore, but when I do, the images that come out of it surprise me so, and are like nothing I could have planned. This little face is my friend’s sweet daughter, and the mama is ready to greet another sweet little face at the bottom here :: above, she wanted a canola field but we were too late in the season. Fortunately, in Saskatchewan, there is always a field of something yellow, somewhere :: and a little bird from some product photos for my dear artist friend (see, I really only photograph my friends…) Shauna Buck, and part of her Alphabetical Aviary series ::

Hope you’re having the nicest August weekend,

We saw an old friend marry a new friend, our littlest watered grandma’s garden, and my girl spent a few days at camp {the very same place where I spent my summers as a kid, where I fell for my now-husband as a staff, where we got married…there’s a lot tied up in that place}. We played with sweet children and I saw lifetime friends who are so dear to me. We crossed the longest bridge and he insisted that we eat these just-beginning carrots everyday, ‘like bunnies.’
