The word "full" keeps entering my mind lately. At random moments in my day it will come forward in my mind and it's the only way I know to describe things. Our house has been full of friends and family over the last several weeks, but even in the emptiness of company when Scott and I are ending our night cuddled under a blanket on the couch falling asleep to episodes of Flight of the Concords, my heart feels full. We built a new kitchen table (I need to share pictures!) and the simple change of having dinner across from one another and not on the couch, awkwardly with pillows in our laps, has made such a difference. Our home feels full, especially in the mornings when the Autumn light filters into each empty room. It's a sign of change, something I welcome in the Fall as I turn a year older, the skies are darker, and the air is cool. My calendar is full with work too, something I feel exceptionally grateful for.
Here are just a few snapshots I've taken lately:
1 + 2. Our patio in the evening.
3. Scott making art in our 2nd bedroom that has been converted into a workspace now that all of our visitors are gone.
4. My first experiment in dying fabrics naturally with flowers.
5. Left) Photographing products for Serious Delights Bakery at the Durango Farmers Market! Right) Meeting with a client/friend over snacks and cocktails to discuss her fall engagement photos.
6. Taking pictures during a dress rehearsal for the Durango Arts Center.
7. Getting ready to make a tomato tart for dinner with goodies from the garden.
