Isn’t he handsome?



We were on a Christmas shopping date. Together. No kids.

Of course we grabbed a burger at Dandy’s Drive In. I took his picture.

The terrible people in the car across from us laughed...

Day Three Hundred Forty Six


I woke up way too early on this Sunday Morning, but the sight of the freshly decorated tree always takes my breath away. So, like any born photographer would, I grabbed my camera sometime just after 12:30 and tried to keep the memory forever.

Day Three Hundred Thirty One


She’s going back to school. He seems to know this. She’s ready for Christmas break. I’m so dead for posting this. It looks like when she was four.

In Thanksgiving weekend afterglow.

Day Three Hundred Twenty Nine







Day Three Hundred Twenty Eight


I want to remember this day.

I woke up at four a.m. and sat in the big chair, thinking about how absolutely sweet it is to take time to be thankful in the dark with my college daughter, healthy family,  and our priceless friends sleeping under our roof.

In the light of the loneliness and uncertainty (and, yes, blessing) of the past two years, this moment and this day were amazingly... mmm!



Thankful Gallahers

Crazy Thanks

Day Three Hundred Twenty Seven


Another cheat because today was much to busy preparing for Thanksgiving dinner and the arrival of my daughter and our life-long friends to take any pictures. SO!

These are from tomorrow...

Day Three Hundred Twenty Six


Just some from my session a little more than a week ago...

It’s what I’m doing!
