Reminders


I spent Saturday at Olympic Sculpture Park, jogging and taking photos while Steve-o worked. It was a gorgeous day, and I remembered right away how much I love being near the ocean. I don't see it that often though, since I usually choose nearby Green Lake for my [occasional] runs. Living near Green Lake is great, but the ocean is its own majesty.

My visit also reminded me that Seattle has so many pretty places like this, and that I don't spend enough time outside in them. I think it would be a great goal to revisit one park (preferably with an ocean view) each week. For some reason, I just think it would help me keep a perspective that I need in the midst of a busy work week. This Saturday I couldn't help but think about how large the ocean is, and how small I am (my worries included) in comparison.

This weekend I also happened to read a quote by C.S. Lewis: "We need to be reminded more often than we need to be instructed." I like this. Revelation is not only about learning new concepts or gaining new perspectives. It's sometimes about simply returning to the very things that we've always believed in. God can be found in creation is one of those beliefs for me.

So, I'm hoping that I can spend more time outside, enjoy God's creation, and breathe in some healthy doses of Pacific Ocean air. :)

Seahawks Sunday


It was a beautiful day to cheer for our team...

But all of the cheering in the world couldn't bring us a win. Oh well. Maybe next year?

Rainy Day








A little bit of work, photography, piano...and a burger. A pretty good Saturday.

greta


Steve and Tina are the leaders of our small group, so it makes sense that they'd also take the lead, and become the first parents of the group. It's hard to believe that these photos were taken last summer, and now little Greta is over 3 months old! Tina was kind enough to let me try out my new camera the other day, and take photos of her little girl.





I love the shots of Greta looking at her mom.


Greta, you are so cute and getting cuter every day. Can't wait to see you continue to grow!
