On Sunday evening, I took a walk around the neighbourhood, camera in hand. It has been so sunny and warm lately, I really ought to be out there every single chance I get. The evening stroll was a good chance to think and pray about things. It occurred to me that I'll never have a summer like this again - engaged to be married and planning a wedding. It's so busy but also awfully special.

*More photos here.

  19. These pictures are so beautiful! There's something so wonderful about special summers...but being engaged on top of it? I can't think of anything more exciting than that. Nothing clears the head better than a walk alone, either.
