trees.


trees symbolize something sturdy. they remind us that there is something bigger than us. they show us the creation of what our God is able to do. Making something so huge be so beautiful. growing up, my room was at the front of our house. Just outside my window, across the driveway was my favorite thing in our entire yard... a weeping willow. it never seemed so sad/ weepy to me, but it was a symbol of happiness. of some sort of fairy tale awaiting me just beyond the driveway. wow. thinking about that big beautiful tree brought back images i didn't know i still held onto. (smiling).

a girlfriend of mine... seriously one of the nicest girls in the WORLD (if you meet her you will know i am not exagerating). todd was talking about her yesterday and described her perfectly. he said that she makes you want to be a better person. well... she is a new mom & has come up with a little company she is trying to start called 'rooted'. she is getting ready to launch her new line of organic baby things & mommy things. check out her blog. her etsy shop is going to be up soon too. rootedstudios.blogspot.com her image is the strength of a tree!

everywhere i look i see trees. the last few weeks i have been having a hard time sleeping. this is the product of waking up at 3:30 AM. ugh.

I love trees! I was a climber for sure... I still do climb every so often! And Patrick planted a weeping willow for me... I love it! :) You will have to come see it sometime!

That's the most amazing an humbling thing I've ever read or heard. I love you. May the Lord be absolutely praised.

Weeping willows just call to little girls with promises of stepping inside and finding imaginary worlds. I had a willow I loved too.

Summer, I know exactly the tree you described, I can see it vividly in my mind. It was such a beautiful willow-- nothing "weepy" about it. :)
Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
Hope you are doing well...
