i sat at the coffee shop for a while before this image taunted me enough to make me get my camera from the car. i couldn’t leave it behind. sure glad i didn’t.
while in grand rapids this week, i was able to spend the afternoon with a beautiful couple. cari is my longest friend- we’ve known each other since third grade, and jay came around many years later. cari and i shared years of climbing trees and spying on neighbors. somehow that grew into loving bikes and good food and growing things. i deeply cherish this couple who never hesitate to open their home to anyone needing a safe place or listening ear. thanks for loving so well, dear friends. i love you!
