Helene & Steve



A bit behind in this posting: Helene & Steve's wedding up at the Red Beet Cafe in Palmer last weekend.









I'm not ashamed to admit that there is at least one moment in every wedding where I get a bit choked up. This time it was watching this couple [below] on the dance floor. For most of one of the songs she clung to her husband, head on his chest, as if they were at high school prom.

All About Maleia

My dear friend, Maleia, has asked on more than one occasion why she has not shown up in my blog--so in the interest of maintaining our friendship, I give you Maleia.






All images were taken during a recent trip to Boise, Idaho and subsequently, to visit Maleia’s mother and step dad (Anni & Bruce) their four dogs, four rabbits, three chickens, two cats, and Sylvester the spider who all live happily and healthily in their little home just off main street in New Plymouth, Idaho.

I'll leave you with Bud, the dear neighbor who, at 80 years old, decided on an "early retirement" from the trucking business (during which time he logged countless miles across the lower 48--north to south, east to west).
