31 is for lovers.

i'm just in the middle of planning a very very last minute camping trip. no wedding to shoot this weekend!! the first in many!! debated between seattle and camping..... camping wins due to having an 8 year old boys vote to count. trying to take advantage of free saturdays and sundays. we may just load up the bikes and go ride the lower cour d'alene bike trails down near benewah and st. maries. or haul the canoe to wade around lake. i won't lie though: im a little nervous about joonbug jumping over the edge.

i had a terrific birthday. other than smashing my head in twice in 10 minutes at my moms house. shoot, i have no idea where lola gets her clumsiness. on a side note, if you want to feel loved have a birthday on facebook. does that make any sense?

anyway merv surprised me by coming home early from work out of town.

so he threw together a last minute date. we went to pacific ave pizza and ordered to go. thai pizza and cheesy bread of course. walked through brownes addition and happened to catch an earful of the 2nd best local band, mon cheri playing in the park (only second to crickets of cascadia of course...)

and then off on an adventure to find the most beautiful place in spokane... seriously! indian canyon. me thinking:" can you believe this!!" lush and green in july to boot! the name alone sold me. this place is incredibly beautiful and just 5 minutes from my house. (thanks joy, for the tip!!!)

i'm heading up to pick raspberries at 6:30 with mama egg aka, edie... yay!! mmmmmmmmm i love me some raspberries. thee best. secretly, she plants them just for me. shhh.

life is flying by. each passing year goes by twice as fast as the last. so remember to cherish them all.

running song of the moment pays ode to my lover.
home: by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros

a few of the lyrics fit us to a T:

Him:I'll follow you into the park
Through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I never loved one like you

Her:Moats and boats and waterfalls
Alleyways and pay phone calls
I've been everywhere with you

Him:That's true
Laugh until we think we'll die
Barefoot on a summer night
Never could be sweeter than with you

Her:And in the streets you run a-free
Like it's only you and me
Geez, you're something to see

Glad you could enjoy your birthday with you husband after all.
I would also like to make a request for that lemon basil chicken. It looks so good!
