I’ve been missing my sweet friend Angie lately, partly because I know I could have talked to her about my Uncle Hal and she would understand the impact of his death on me. I’d realized recently that I’d been driving past Rest Haven on my way to an appointment a week or so ago so I went to visit her yesterday. There was construction going on there, it looks as if they are expanding Rest Haven. I noticed a lot of birds singing and the groundskeepers were busy caring for the property. It was so nice to see fall colors there, although it made me miss fall in Pittsburgh, PA! Most interesting was that I wasn’t prepared for how happy I was going to be to see her picture again. Her beautiful smile still shines on.
I sent her mom and sister a close up of her picture and the other sweet happening has been that friends and family have been sharing and appreciating this photo as well. Angie died 8/1/1999 of cystic fibrosis. She was a talented, loving, wise, and full of life individual that I’ve known since 1st grade soccer. Valuable lessons she has taught me include taking care of my body because I only have one, that I should live fully, presently, and passionately, and most often to make sure I communicate with those I love honestly and openly.
Here in the Pacific Northwest we’re enjoying some sunshine. Daffodils are starting to bloom and other flowers have starts. I apologize for my lack of photoblogging this winter! All is well on the home front, just haven’t felt the photo inspiration until lately. We’ve had some great sunsets lately that unfortunately my camera missed. I’ve toted the camera around for two days now capturing this shot on my way home from church.

I’ve missed my photo a day! Setting up a new blog has taken my attention away from this one, didn’t think they would be competing for my attention 🙂
My Pentax K-x made it back from Hillsboro!!! A special shout out to my Aunt Gayle for shipping it back pronto. I’m guessing Pentax had a glorious sunny ride back from Springfield to Hillsboro, he (yeah I just decided this one’s a guy) even got to go wedding dress shopping with Aunt Gayle as she prepares for a fall slew of weddings (Go Ann & James! Go Nathan & Steph!). However Pentax wasn’t as pleased about the air tight bubble wrap ride home with UPS, however he was happy it was just one overnight ride until he was home- safe and sound in the comfort of his home.
Today I’ve decided to do something different. What would you like to see photo wise? Shout out your ideas, the one that catches my attention & gets me snapping gets posted tomorrow! The prize, I’ll print it and mail it to you as a 5×7 if ya like. Pentax thanks you.
