Where Have We Been?

Here at the coast. Celebrating the wedding of our youngest daughter Elena and her wonderful and amazing partner Jason.
Here they are with their beautiful daughter Delilah.

There are some rituals that evoke the timelessness of our human selves, the gathering of kin at the altar of love. The words we say to the bride and groom, full of every hope and open heart. We wish all good things to come their way in a future that will bring them the sweetest fruits of their dreams.

We have this one thing to surround them with always. Love.

PS: Check out the stunning white foliage from an albino redwood on Jason's lapel. It's a well-guarded family secret where that foliage grows, so it was a treasured sight to see this.
