I asked a group of people to describe in a word but no more than a sentence what they are most thankful for this year. Survey says…



“Godly relationships”

“I’m most thankful for the appreciation of life.”

“I am thankful for being able to stand alone when I have to.”

“Another second chance”

“As the years go by the more I realize how truly blessed I am to have a family that love and accept me, my faith that grounds me, friends who always support me, and my health.”

“I am most thankful for God’s unwavering love.”

“I’m thankful for love, life lessons and the little and large luxuries I’ve been blessed to experience this year.”

“My people, my growth and my experiences.”

“I’m thankful for the prayers and support from my church, friends and family which in turn has strengthened my faith in overcoming challenges!”

“I’m thankful for my craft, and all it has allowed me to experience & witness.”

“I am most thankful for prayer; life’s most powerful resource.”


Feel free to comment with what your most thankful for this year.


They feast on the abundance of your house;     you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life;     in your light we see light. 

Psalm 36:8-9


Holiday blessings to you,

Hello Autumn

We took to the streets near Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA over a few Sunday afternoons to capture  some fall looks.
