Go Fish

Today I went fishing. 
Real-life fishing. I live in the beautiful Northwest,
so you would guess I'd have this accomplished sooner.
But no sir, today was a first.  
Not even a stick and a worm! 
My oh my, I've ventured that path many a time.
And let me tell you, I've caught quite a few handsome little vertebrates.
But today ...today was a day for the big dawgs.

These are the salmon I caught! 
A big thanks to my father for taking me out, and to Jim, for letting us intrude his boat with him for the morning.

Highs and lows with Katie!

Aujourd' hui, I was in a hurry. 

Top highs and lows today:
Sunglasses mean sunshine. Three cheers for warmth.  
Free scones. 
I have a creative kick going on right now..
..kickin' like nobodies biznezz. I'll tell you sometime.      

Not one, not two, but THREE whole buttons fell off my pants today. I should have bargained more when I purchased them in the Philippines. Guess what? The buttons were glued. Looks like those sewing lessons from Great Grandma will come in handy tomorrow.

Jesus is like a doctor. 
Doctor's don't stay in business with healthy people.
He came for the sick. 
Grace, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, and love.
I so badly want to be more like Jesus.
I want to love people like Jesus loves people.

Summer's been peachy..

An update of this past week in photos:

I got a new 50mm lens, and am L.O.V.I.N.G. it!
I also banked in on a new flash and tripod. 
Coming soon: Wedding photos!
I just shot my second wedding...after telling others I never wanted to shoot weddings again.
After this, I may reconsider.

Home from Haiti

Hello all! Katie is home from Haiti. 
I don't know what to put here because there's so much to write about.
Just know that it was incredible.
Poverty still breaks my heart. But I know of a God who cares deeply. 
So when viewed through that perspective, hope stands strong.
I so wish I could express this trip with just photos and no words, but unfortunately I lost my camera card in Haiti. So far no luck finding it.
