Yosemite // A PHOTO ESSAY

Earlier this Summer, my in-laws lovingly planned and shuttled me, Jay, and James to Yosemite--a trip that was literally 5 years in the making.  The astounding beauty of Yosemite paled in comparison to the beauty of a long-hoped-for idea finally come to fruition.  It was certainly a place, by all accounts, that I should never have been able to see, but I did because Jay stayed, and he waited, and he took me with him...for which no words can express my love and gratitude, but thank you, my Jay, for all these adventures and many more.

{these are some of my FAVORITE photos that Jay has taken recently; the love, the longing, the beauty, and the hope are so apparent in them all}
