I recently received a gentle reminder from a friend that I had not yet shared my big birthday weekend from last Fall with you all. Encouraged, I started to comb through the images and all of the memories came flooding back. I puzzled how best to share them with you. There are large gaps in the weekend where we didn't pick up the camera at all. Then there is this sort of teeter-totter effect in the images that we did capture.
In my daily life I am most definitely the woman pictured above. Pensive, peaceful, filled with love and spirit. But I am certainly the one with the tiara, tuutuu and the megaphone, as well:

Right next to the bar we built filled with an altogether different type of spirit:
There were sparkly wish-filled flames:
And gentle, peaceful places for rest:
This rented beach house was filled with wonderful women:
But we made an allowance and let one lovely man join in:
The sunrise of the first day:
The sunset of the last:
A weekend filled with dualities and every yummy thing tucked into the in-betweens.
