Jake got a phone call from one of our neighbors a couple weeks ago, telling us that Zuka and Akiva were barking in the evening while we were out. Consistently, loudly barking for long periods of time. Well, of course we felt awful. They never bark much while we’re home, so we had no idea. […]
Have a question? Or a comment? Wonder what my favorite color is? Shoot me an email! I'd love to hear your story. We could even chat over some coffee. My treat. Because really, I love an excuse to get some Starbucks! Oh, and my favorite color is green : )
When I was little, I used to pretend I was a horse. Or a wolf. Sometimes a tiger. Whatever suited my fancy. I was one of thooose girls. I didn't really play with dolls or put on lipstick and wear my mom's heels. Instead, I created elaborate stories in my head and played them out for hours, sometimes days, until the story was complete.
As I got older, I thought for a time that I wanted to be a writer. Instead of acting out the stories in my imagination, I tried to put them on paper. I would sit down and start these grand novels, only to begin another one after a few chapters in the first. I had every intention of finishing them. I just... never did. Apparently writing isn't my strong suit.
Then I found a camera. Jackpot. I found a way to stop time. To tell real stories. The kind of stories that should be remembered. Need to be remembered. Stories full of life and love that beg to be preserved and shared.
So I guess you could call me a story teller. A really, really ridiculously blessed and happily married story teller who can't cook but laughs a lot and has three dogs. I love my life.
And I'd love to tell your story : )
