I have been given the opportunity to spend time this summer with so many amazing families. I not only get to witness, but I get to capture all their amazingness. And this family has a lot of amazing going on! :)

friday night i returned home from the most amazing, heart-filling week spent with 18 other artists from around the world. perhaps i'll write more about this experience later if i can find the words...

but barely 24 hours after getting home, my heart already at capacity, it was almost surreal that I was now at the minnesota zoo's outdoor amphitheater, on a beautiful night, to see brandi carlile. that voice. with such feeling. what a perfect conclusion to a perfect week. and she closed the show with "hallelujah". gets me every time. sigh.

I will be out of the office for most of the week. I hope to be able to periodically check email, but I can't promise. If you really need to reach me, please feel free to call and I'll do my best to get back to you asap. Otherwise, I will for sure reply to any emails by sometime next weekend.

In the meantime, enjoy a cold sprite and some ice cream. I hope to do a little of that myself. :)
