dandelions, a canoe & the glasbys!

the glasbys are the best friends we never met until we were grown ups.  it’s a rare thing to meet a friend that just feels like home.  that’s what heather (the mama) is to me.  and when we found out that our husbands and kids felt the same way about each other, well that’s pretty much one of the most precious gifts in life.  in a season that felt often lonely and foreign to us after just moving up here to washington, the glasbys forced us into laughing and dance parties and hearty conversation and i was also blessed to witness the birth of their baby girl.  this family is so dear to us.  they are pretty much the most fun and thoughtful folks you’ll ever meet and i hope they never find out that we aren’t nearly as cool as they are.  😉  i photographed their session here at our home while our apple trees were full of blossoms at the end of april and the meadow thick with dandelions (heather’s favorite “flower”).  they brought their canoe, whom they named sir grizwald, to the pond and they just had a happy little springtime day.  *be sure to scroll down to the very bottom to see my newest little assistant here at my homestead sessions!  😉

    Joy, don’t think there is anyone who could make Dandelions look more beautiful than you. The ones of them up in the tree are so so dreamy, they are amazing. And what a fun prop that they brought their canoe. So glad you are finding a family here in Washington. It is so important to have friends you can call family when family isn’t here and to share all those special and ordinary moments of life with.
