thousands of roses.

Found along our walks in a city aptly named “The City of Roses”.

All of these were taken at Washington Park at a section known as the International Rose Test Garden. You can find over 10,000 bushes of roses with more than 650 different varieties. It’s a stunning sight to behold.

Not much else to say here because the beauty of these flowers speak for themselves.

My favorites tend to be the orange dreamsicle colored ones. But these painted ones were so amazing!! Each rose was so unique, as if they were personally painted with different brush strokes. Beautiful.

 

As delicate as flower, as tender as rose petals, choosing to be tender and kind in a harsh environment is not weakness, it’s courage.

cozy thai red curry ramen.

I haven’t shared a recipe on here before… but this was too freaking delicious to not share!

Oh my goodness, you guys. When I made this, Michael and I were looking forward to dinner every single night we had this.

A warm, cozy bowl of rich red curry broth with fresh noodles and roasted peanuts??! Sign. Me. Up. Michael hates mushrooms, but any time I can sneak them into a meal without him really noticing is a win for me!

Ever since we built this little food photography studio in our home, it’s been so much fun shooting what I’m making!

I am pretty sure the biggest way I show my love is by cooking and feeding others. I’m not sure why, but I feel so much happiness from sharing any sweet treats or meals that I make. And I don’t think I ever stop thinking about what to cook next and who I’m going to share my leftovers with.

Cheers to always eating good with even better company surrounding you. ❤️

Anyway, here’s this yummy recipe!

We haven’t picked up our camera in a good while… but looking back at some of our somewhat-macro shots go us excited to shoot again. We are going on a trip this weekend for Michael’s birthday, and I think we are gonna finally dust off the little guy and take some photos again!

In the meantime, here’s a few of our favorites we’ve taken on some of our adventures. 🌿

SO sorry for the terrible quality on this one because it was compressed… and I’m a little too lazy to sift through alllll of the old photos for the original.

The fall colors here in the Pacific Northwest are stunning. I’ve never seen colors like this before. And when it rains, we love seeing the water droplets on everything.

All taken with the good ol’ nifty fifty f/1.8 Canon lens.

I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure. To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
