little mug / big trees


This evening I enjoyed a cup of Earl Grey tea in this little mug that makes me feel happy every time I use it - it was the very first mug I made on a wheel and glazed. / Taylor didn't send a photo again ( oh so busy i guess). But I always have plenty to choose from. Taylor took this photo exactly one year ago when my brother and his family visited from Maryland. We took a family hike at a place called Big Trees Forest Preserve, just few miles from home. It feels like a secret haven there. It's a 30-acre tree, plant and wildlife sanctuary right in the midst of a highly developed area. There are several, nicely managed, mulch trails, big rock boulders, 2 creeks, tree bridges, a variety of flowering plants and trees including white oak trees that are 100 to 200 yrs old. It's a wonderful escape so close to home.

sorry Taylor I realize now that this was the one that was focused beyond Cooper instead of one him. But that's ok. I like it anyway.

Oh, my gosh!! I adore this blog! I am so very, very glad you found me and left a comment because that let me discover you two.

I am so blessed by so many things about this blog. I love the love that shines through it. The creative idea behind it. The wonderful, daily-moments-captured sort of photography. The love between the two of you. The juxtapositions between your two words. I love the way that you are holding on to each other and staying connected in a very fractured, frantic world. It gives me great pleasure to think of sharing something like this with my daughter some day. It's so nice to meet you.

That mug makes me want to curl up in front of the fire with a hot cocoa and a good book.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
