home away from home.

2.16.2012


I've always loved the idea of visiting another country just to stay for the afternoon. (oh, the amusement that comes from living near the border) A few weekends back, we crossed over into the states for a day on the slopes. Perched high on a chairlift with my sister, we witnessed the unfolding of landscapes our eyes had never seen. So reminiscent of the ones at home, yet completely new to us.

Here's to doing the things you love and the places you've never been.

  4. mm, i loved everything about this. those first few shots were great -- the logs and wooden ceiling. it's those little things your eyes focus one when you're in deep thought that make the best pictures =)

  19. Stop doing this to me. I mean, these are just too good.

    Abbey, these photos are heartfelt. They have meaning, a deep, rich meaning that soothes the soul, calms the mind, and makes a heart nostalgic.
