A Thousand Words

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? It’s been so long since I visited here, I have no idea where to start. It’s not been a slow, cozy winter, but one of trying to fit everything in before moving to Nepal. I’m finding out there is probably always more to do than is possible on a furlough. It’s been so good reconnecting with family and friends again, even if the schedule is a little crazy. I’ll just start right in where we left off, these old pictures bring back good memories. 🙂

  1. Your pictures are full of light and beauty. We wish you and your precious children all the best as you go to Nepal.

  2. Your beautiful pictures and sweet words brought a smile to my day. I enjoyed catching up on your blog. I think I recognize Kate from a wedding I photographed in South Georgia.
