Garden Roses- Kina Wicks Photography

You love the roses – so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet: and it would be
Like sleeping and yet waking, all at once.

-George Eliot

I have two weddings to shoot this weekend, but Monday you will find me on a lake somewhere with my honey soaking in the sun and enjoying an ice cold lemonade. Happy Memorial Day loves!

Nieces are such a treat!  Our sweet Jaylyn girl begged me to take walks with her, introduced us all to her American Girl dolls with fresh hair styles from the American Girl Store and reminded me over and over of the joy of being a child this week.
