Sometimes you prepare for rain, expect rain, and instead get nothing but blue sky.  In the days leading up to Calla and Jo’s wedding, the forecast looked wet.  We came up with a rough plan in case of rain, but it didn’t vary so much from the clear day plan.  When I arrived at the house in Stinson Beach where getting ready was taking place, Calla and Jo were enjoying the beautiful day and doing their hair and makeup together.  There was Cowgirl Creamery cheese in the kitchen and a loaf of local bread.  Once Calla and Jo were ready, we heading up to Mount Tam where their wedding guests were dropped off via yellow school buses.  A progression to Trojan Point soon followed.  There was music, singing, toasts, and Calla and Jo married each other (no officiant).  After some pictures among the Serpentine rock formations, we heading to the Stinson Beach Community Center for Hog Island Oysters and beautiful food by Fork Full of Earth and the live music of Qinn Deveaux and his band.  Such a wonderful day.

Life is an adventure.  Last year was full of them.  I had friends die, was introduced to new babies fresh to the world, and went on journeys that I entered into with trepidation and left feeling excited and renewed.  In my personal life and in my professional life, I tried and continue to try to be better than I was before, to focus on the stuff that counts, to be open to new things, and to get sh** done.  To share food with strangers, laughter, and being surrounded by joy is a true gift.  Thank you to all the people who choose to have me join them on their days of celebration.  Here are 100 images from last year.  Most are wedding images and a few are family portrait images.  May you enjoy your days, laugh often, and eat yummy food.
