Fun with flashlights.


"The main interest in life and in work is to become someone else that you were not in the beginning. If you knew when you began a book what you would say at the end, do you think that you would have the courage to write it? What is true for writing and for a love relationship is also true for life. The game is worthwhile insofar as we don’t know what will be the end."

- Michael Foucault

We rented three pontoon boats one Sunday in June and spent the best day on Lake Jocassee. Thanks to Matt for being an expert navigator (hard-boiled eggs in hand!), Mark for planning such a fun trip, and to everyone else for their great company. Sunday Funday.

These things never get old. Sparklers on the fourth of July.

We moved BACK into our beloved little green house on Magnolia Avenue (where I lived for three years in college), because we decided that apartments are overrated, and because summers are best spent in the backyard with friends and a charcoal grill.

Kelly & Jonathan eloped at Craggy Gardens in early June. I was both their witness and their photographer. Afternoons with couples like this are just about as good as they come.

Miles, Jack, and Evan: I had so much fun with you three. Please come back to visit. Minor league baseball games aren’t as fun without Pennsylvania boys.

Things I miss about childhood summers: Playing outside all day with disregard for heat or exhaustion or sunburned shoulders. Crawling into bed with scraped up, bug bitten legs, worn proud like badges from the daylight adventures. Stomping in puddles during late afternoon showers.

This stud graduates from Kennett High School tonight. He’s only 18 but I look up to him as a constant example of kindness and humility. He’s got the biggest heart of anyone I know and I am beyond proud to call him my brother, today and always.
