“to love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” ~ david viscott ~



the bride comes in with a song

the littlest wedding crasher

handsome in his checked shirt

grabs a bouquet from the bar

and jumps into the celebration


bride and groom

join as one


as they become a family


and the celebration begins


“love is not just looking at each other,

it’s looking in the same direction.”

and then…….!


a day of ups and downs and ups again. began with the farmer’s market – flowers, fruits, veggies, jams, babies finding music there and dancing to live strings as the sun gleamed down. and then…. a car surprise – went from oil change in 15 minutes and 19 dollars, to front suspension in 2.5 hours and 838 dollars. threw in a free light bulb.  and then…..thai dinner – hot spicy fun and laughter and burning lips with friends, including our volleyball player in a cast ‘with a slight break/chip’. and then……ran into aut/out-fest, filled with rainbows, beads, italian ices and drag queens.  and then…..wandered into a wedding back at the scene of the morning farmers market, more music and beauty everywhere.  and then… a  bicycle built for 7.  full circle.  and then…….






But then there are magical, beautiful things in the world.

There’s incredible acts of kindness and bravery, and in the most unlikely places, and it gives you hope.

with this ring, i thee ride.


spent a beautiful day downtown, only to encounter a sweet and joyful wedding party on  bicycles. everyone was radiating happiness or perhaps it was the sweat glistening off of them, but no matter. and what wedding is not complete without a unicyclist in the mix, i ask you?
