I love their strength, beauty, and size.
The way their leaves are shaped & the color they change in the fall.
How the seed is carefully protected inside the small but mighty acorn.
So many incredible details in one tree.
I especially love that when two trees grow side by side... sometimes they even share root systems by grafting together. We have a lot to learn from these mighty trees. #Oaktree#beauty#puremichigan#fall#strength#findlife#seemore#bentley#dogwalk#labradoodle
Words can’t express how happy I am to be taking walks on the beach (without a coat) at the end of October. The short days and long hours of darkness have been strangely hard to adjust to this year. I find myself longing for the long days of summer with daylight that seemed to go on forever. I’m optimistic & peppy by nature.... but I’ve been quiet, contemplative, and a little hermit like lately. Thank goodness I don’t live in Alaska!!! For now I’ll make the most of the daylight and contemplate waking up sooner to soak up a little extra sunshine. (Key word ‘contemplate’) #beach#october#fall#shortdays#comebacksunshine#puremichigan#bentleythebeachbabe#puppy#walksonthebeach#notamorningperson#ineedsunshine
It’s @alejanpgonzalez’s BIRTHDAY!!! 🎉🎉🎉
I can’t believe that I’ve only known this guy for a few years! He’s quickly became a part of my life and it’s been awesome watching him grow.
This guy always keeps me on my toes. He’s every oxymoron... bold/timid, outgoing/shy, risky/calculated, open/guarded, serious/silly, independent/dependent and the list goes on. He’s full of personality and life and dreams big! While being an unexpected addition- we have welcomed him with open hearts and an open home. I never expected to have a second little brother! But now I can’t imagine not having one. From fishing in the backyard- to standing as close to me as you can in the kitchen- to leaving your paper plates in the sink- to wanting to be the center of it all. You are something else! 😂 [as you’ll see in this string of photos]
Ollie- you are made for more than you can even dream or imagine. You have so much to offer the world and unlimited potential. You’re a great brother, friend, son... and every other role you fill. So today, CELEBRATE! Not because it’s your 21st or because the world says that’s what we do on Birthdays— but because you’ve been given the gift of another year, a beautiful life, and another 365 opportunities to be all that you can be. Fresh starts- new beginnings. Each year offers you that. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! #celebrate#life#birthday#littlebrother#21stbirthday#growingup
