My apologies: I’ve been neglectful of this space, haven’t I? Fortunately, my camera has been busy – I’ve begun another personal project (maybe more on that later) – and while I’ve kept on top of following my favourite WordPress blogs, I have missed posting here regularly.

But today deserves some attention because it’s the Mr.’s birthday. Here’s a guy who’s willing to stand on potentially dangerous ledges and outcrops of wet rock so that I can make photos. To be clear: it’s HIS idea to stand on dangerous ledges and outcrops of wet rock. If it were up to me, he’d be standing at a reasonable, safe distance from the water at all times. Maybe wearing a life jacket, just in case. But those pictures would surely put you to sleep.

Anyhow, anxiety and slippery rocks aside, my mightiest birthday wishes go out to my partner of nearly twenty years. He’s kind, generous, smart, funny, and patient. Also, easy on the eyes. I don’t know how I was lucky enough to nab him.

Honey, I celebrate you.

And the fact that you didn’t fall into the lake.



Wish list.

March 6 (1 of 1)

Here are a few desirable qualities in a husband:

✅ He’ll leave the last slice of cheesecake/cup of coffee for you.

✅ He’ll tickle your children until they lay like giant, limp slugs on the carpet, breathless with joy.

✅ He’ll remember to ask you how your meeting/test/doctor’s appointment went.

✅ He’ll willingly attend a musical with you, even though he will almost certainly fall asleep or die of boredom.

✅ He’ll get out of bed and look after the child/feline who decides that 4 a.m. is a beautiful hour to start the day.

✅ He won’t get irritated because you made and posted pictures of him wandering off alone, deep in thought.

Happy birthday, Husband. Thanks for all you do 💓
