a blushing sky
fall with me
into the abyss

Sunset is my favorite time to visit the beach. It’s quiet, the colors are spectacular, and the waves seem to slow down just a bit. The water curls around my ankles and the sand rolls between my toes, a gentle soothing reminder that it’s time to let the day go and embrace the stillness of stars and the moon. Little by little the light dims, turning the sky from blue to raven, while the water darkens into a peaceful abyss.

water rushes
through this moment
with you

My husband and I took a scenic train ride through the Italian and Swiss Alps this past summer. It was one of the most incredible experiences we’ve ever shared. As a couple, we often travel apart as we enjoy different activities, (but we always come together at the end of the day to excitedly talk about our experiences). However, in this rare instance we both wanted to hop on that train and have an adventure. We spent the day in absolute awe and it’s something I’m so glad we shared together in a single moment.
