And Then We Snapped - Week #3

This week started with Piper heading back to school and ended with me taking a solo trip to Northern Minnesota to photograph a wedding. There was a little bit of illness mid week but all and all it was a great seven days. 

"There's a light inside us all
It only shines as bright as we are"
-Swell Season

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

“It's either the flu or love... The symptoms are the same.”
― Charles M. Schulz

Poor Dex! We decided to take a bike ride to get some ice cream tonight. Once we sat down to eat it Dex started acting strange and wouldn't eat his ice cream. My motherly instinct told me something bad is about to happen. My fears were confirmed when we arrived home and he threw up all over the steps from the garage to the house. All I can say is thank goodness he made it home and didn't get sick in the bike trailer!

“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?”
― John Lennon

“I was born to catch dragons in their dens / And pick flowers / To tell tales and laugh away the morning / To drift and dream like a lazy stream / And walk barefoot across sunshine days.”
― James Kavanaugh

Minnesota - You're the gateway to my soul.
You are in my blood, soil's thicker than mud, in the land where the waters roll.
-Northern Lights

"I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more"
-Christina Perri
