Here they find themselves in the last moments before all the bustle takes over.
Before everyone gathered, before vows were written & read. Before much dancing, celebrating, &, of course, really yummy cake.
This is their sanctuary. Their tradition together. Hiking Haystack mountain, hand in hand.
Here they are, one last time before they wed.
Climbing up those rocky walls. Overlooking the pine trees below & Canada beyond.
Soaked in golden rays of sun. Holding each other tight. Breathing in. Out. Breathing deeply.
Finding themselves in the stillness & beauty of these precious moments.
Preparation. Precious preparation for the grandness that is to come with the morning sun.
 
to see their full story, see our shalom blog.

i dream of living a simple life, with you by my side.
i dream of bright white walls.
of open windows. of sea breezes.
bike rides. adventures. picnics.
these are my dreams.
& the best part of my dreams are, of course, you by my side.

August || Mixtape 10

sounds of summer || august mixtape on beetleandfig.com
 
august is here in all of her glory,
marking that summer is escaping us sooner than later.
we will be soaking up as much of it as we can.
listen to the humm of those cicadas’ sweet song. riding bikes. eating frozen yogurt.
we started our month off in new england,
completely falling in love with the foggy shores & crashing waves.
& before the months end, we will visit the city streets of chicago.
 
where will this month take you & what will it be filled with?
