It’s been a heartbreakingly difficult past week. But also a beautiful one.
Funny how your priorities get an automatic realignment when cancer enters your world.
And even though I don’t feel lighthearted, I know that this blog keeps me sane at times and we all need some moments to smile.
So along with my assorted kitchen and laundry tasks, my husband has sweet talked me into an additional wifely duty.
(no worries, the blog is still PG rated)
He took a silly photo of me that totally qualifies for this week’s I Heart Faces theme, but the man just won’t write his own intro (“would be tooting my own horn”)
So in a far MORE awkward scenario… I get to talk about a picture he took of me…
Do you see it?
The theme is WIND. And I am one of those girls who thinks that the ensuing mass of tangles is utterly worth standing in the path of a great gust of wind.
(I was lifted off the ground by the wind in my umbrella in Seattle one day – true story.)
This picture perfectly captures living in the Pacific Northwest.
The amazing GREEN everywhere.
The gorgeous lakes.
The prerequisite cup of Starbucks.
The moody storm clouds behind me.
And of course,
that delightful wind coming off the water that was totally destroying my hair.
Bonus points for finding that one gray hair that my husband managed to capture.
Extra bonus points for not mentioning the eleven more I found since I typed that.
Gust on over to I Heart Faces for more windy entries!
And please keep Mr. Daddy’s mom in your prayers… we still believe in miracles.
