beautiful people, volume 1.

i've wanted to start this project for a while now, and today i received the pictures i needed! i want to introduce the world to folks that i find beautiful and inspiring and i hope you all find them to be as wonderful as i do.

the first couple i've chosen are folks i've known for a long time, and they are the embodiment of hospitality and generosity. they also know how to have a very good time.

meet rex & sara:

rex is a postman and can keep one entertained for quite awhile with hilarious stories and his quick wit. sara is one of the most thoughtful and kind ladies i've ever met, and is always willing to help out where she sees help is needed.

they have 2 sons, travis and parker, and i hope to have the kind of relationship that they have with their boys when my kids are grown.

rex and sara lead quite a creative life, even if they might not claim it. their home is full of beauty and little treasures in every nook and cranny. (i think rex might be a hoarder, honestly...) sara is a musician and writes songs that will get stuck in your head for days on end. and you haven't experienced life to the fullest until you hear a phone message from sara. there really is no describing it, it's simply an experience.

they are the meaning of good people and the salt of the earth. and i hope to have many dinners and evenings spent in their back yard in the future.

i just finished uploading all of my project 365 pics for the last 2 months or so... it was nice. of course i have tons of other photos to work on, but i wanted to get the 365 out of the way. you'll notice a lack of violette in the pictures, mainly because she's decided she hates having her picture taken and she's incredibly fast.

over the weekend we got a new car, computer and camera. well, those were the big purchases, we've been on a bit of a spree!

it's raining here, they said it could be snow, but i'm so grateful it's rain. i don't want to spend another week husband-less!

well, this is quite random and perhaps nonsense, as i've not yet had my coffee...

more later, friends! hope your today is excellent.
