Tacoma Family Documentary Photographer } Trampolines, Unicycles, Pizza, & Bunny

  December feels like a black hole of time. I'm kind of OK with that. I've hardly touched my computer in a week. Our days have been filled with sleeping in, a quick Palm Springs vacation (respite from the cold pour moi), cross-country skiing, touring around downtown Seattle, seeing the Gingerbread display at the Sheraton, taking our exchange student to the Spa[...]

Finding Margin

Beware the barrenness of a busy life- Socrates This year has been one of the hardest of our lives. I think we've been in survival mode without really knowing it. It's only when we stop long enough to breathe and reflect that we realize the stresses and griefs and battles we've been fighting. Among many other traumas Mr. Uhler's work schedule has been, to say the leas[...]

This post makes up the pictures that were part of my weekly posts to the Sham of The Perfect and This Day and Every Day blo[...]
