the wedding

today felt like a weddingthat took place outside
and the sun broke through on cue
the flowers were gathered
arranged and made ready
then surrounded us all
the guests were on time
each one taking their place
the bouquet was thrown
and nature opened to a new beginning I don't know the words to explain how very beautiful the orchard is right now. It feels magical, smells so sweet and there is a tangible hush in the air. The branches reach out to one another and the rows create long arched tunnels covered with blooms. I walk through looking all around...there is such beauty everywhere and it's so overwhelming!

and yes, I cried
I wish I could share this experience with you
all I need is 3D!

I'm readiing this as I bundle up in scarf and gloves and hat to face the bitter cold, on my way to my son's school music concert.

Thank you for the reminder that spring will come!

Gorgeous photos!!! I can almost smell those blossoms!
