Happy Belated Memorial Day!

I've been MIA from my little blog for too long.  My deepest apologies to whoever's out there checking in.

I have so much to share with you from my trip to Kentucky, which is coming to an end this Wednesday. Lots of weddings, engagements, babies and families to post up.  Lots of love and laughter, and warm fuzzy wuzzies. But this post has a more serious tone.

Last night, I was honored to capture some of Matt's belongings, and I have throw together a little collage.  I don't mind if you want to use the image in Matt's honor for your Facebook or whatnot, just ask that you don't change the image in any way, and give credit to the photog, me. I trust ya.

I'd like to remember our dear friend, LCPL Matthias Numon Hanson, who lost his life in battle this past February.  It's easy to go on with our lives, and forget those who've fought for our freedom.  I catch myself going on about my way as if our lost hadn't just happened a few months back.  As the days pass, we grow farther from how it was, and more comfortable with how it is. I know it can feel shameful to have a moment where you've 'forgotten' all that has happened.  Just to recall/remember all too well the reality of our loss.  Matt is a true hero, and more brave than I could ever be.  He served his country and his family well, and I will always honor and remember him.  I'll always think of you Matt, when driving thru our country; the rolling hills, the sunsets, forests and oceans.  When the light is at it's glorious peak. You'll always be there with us.
