Stormy sunset — Lake Tahoe (July 2014)

"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life." —Omar Khayyam

These words help capture the incredible whirlwind of the past few weeks. Highlights involved cathartic summits, rooftops overlooking Manhattan, s’mores made on fire features, and hours of good-for-the-soul conversations with deep body-shaking laughter.

From the “mundane” to new experiences, there were constant reminders that time past and miles apart are no match for true connections and experiences together.

Grateful for profound examples that love is what matters and can really conquer all…even rainy, stormy afternoons!

Magnolia blossoms — Washington DC (April 2014)

"We acquire the strength we have overcome." —Ralph Waldo Emerson

The city has fully transitioned to summer, complete with its signature humidity, heat lightening, and thunderstorms. Most will disagree, but I occasionally appreciate moments when the warm heat envelops you; it can be comforting…to a point!

After this week, particularly grateful for family, love, friends-who-are-family, and laughter. Deeply appreciating quality time and *good* moments.

Basking in tonight’s golden hour — Lake Tahoe

Relishing every minute of this energizing, blissful Saturday!  Particularly enjoyed scrambling along the shoreline to capture the lake’s beautiful reflections at sunset.  Cannot wait for many more (long!) evenings this summer, celebrating Tahoe’s splendor with family and friends.
