Well here we are at the cuff of our moving date and I'm feeling sentimental.
I'm sitting here waiting for the future to happen and it's happening before my eyes.
I'm realizing that there's nothing I can do to stop the move from happening.
Another day, another move, another change. I prefer to call it another adventure.
Thank you Spokane for all of life's happenings, I'm thankful for all of it, good, bad, sad, and happy. I've learned so much from it all. The good memories will be cherished forever and the not so pleasant ones will be taken as lessons learned and hopefully will never be made twice.
I shall miss this place so much, especially the good friends that we've been blessed with. It's amazing how many wonderful people came into our lives, made us laugh, cry together with, sitting around the fire with, work, eat, cook, and create memories with. I'm overwhelmingly happy.
Adventures wont' stop here-I have a feeling-change is definitely in the air, oh yes I feel it.
I won't be working in St. Louis in the next couple of years, but I will continue to work on different projects I've been putting on hold and will continue to shoot for fun and also to work on my travel photography-my first love.
You know what moving does for me? It forces me to look at life as the big picture-the ultimate reason why we are alive. The people that God brings into your life and the people that you picked to be in their lives and how it shapes and influence you to be the person that you are today. There's reasons for all of it and many times the reasons are unknown to us.
Moving also helps me to live life to the fullest-because you never know when you may again your favorite neighbors, eat your friend's world famous enchiladas or walk in your neighborhood park.
I will walk away from Spokane with some of life best memories. Upon reflection of it all, I still cannot believe how everything and everyone of our friends came to be... I can only thank God for every detail it all.
May God bless you all richly in all that you do, thank you for reading this far.
And remember, live is really short, live it to the fullest.
Much love always,
Before we leave Spokane, we wanted some photos of us in some of my favorite locations around town so I asked my friend Lacey Browne to help us and she left us incredibly breathless with her amazing talent with her camera- Thank you Lacey!
Hope you enjoy the slideshow below.
Goodbye Spokane-thank you for being so good to us!
I've never been an early riser until about 6 months ago. I"m not sure what happened, but I can say my prayers are now answered because I've always wanted to be an early morning person and now I"m! So this morning, as I was getting my coffee to start my day, I just couldn't ignore the beautiful sunrise. When I take pictures of sunrise and sunset, I like to take my time, get my gear ready and have everything all set up to go, but this morning, this morning, I just had to just snap a shot of the scene before me. The sunrise was just too in-your-face-beautiful to ignore it. And I love being up early all the more because of moments like these.
These colors remind me of the fall we are having right now, it is an absolute beautiful fall we have this year in Spokane. Happy Wednesday!
Happy birthday to you and wish with all my heart we could be together this year for your birthday! We miss you and love you so much and can't wait to have you home! The house, the city, this life feels empty without you. Have a most wonderful and blessed birthday.
Lots of love,
Suwanee, Nova, and Sputnik.
