yes, i know.  i heard you.  it's been too long.

i'm not sure why, but sometimes if you're not careful, the every day happenings of life can take your focus off of the big picture.

leave you feeling uninspired.
yet not accomplishing anything important.

then you lose what was important
why you started in the first place

that is where i was.


musings of life were mere noise, not music.

until I slowed down and saw things that brought me back to that place where inspiration, life as it happens, is beautiful.

for me, it took this place.

we honeymooned in this tiny, coastal town ten years ago.  it was a beautiful place to start our amazing life together.  a place that only the two of us can understand and appreciate our love for it.  a place so small that if you blink when you drive by, you will miss it.  but to us, this place is our forever.

so much like life.  it feels like it has been a blink - yet it is ten years.

there has been laughter
.... tears..... times heartache....
....and at times great celebration.

i think there is as much to love in the heartache as there is in the celebration...
 ...there is something strangely beautiful in that journey through heartache...
it's in those times that when we come together in our pain and trust in God that we grow...
...that we really become ONE. 

and when we are ONE, inspiration comes again.

and you remember why you started on this journey in the first place

so that our life was not just day in - day out, mere musings....

but instead, the musings do become music because we are in this together

and our life is beautiful....



with love,

p.s.  today, i'm linked up on  Photobucket


  1. This is so beautiful Tam! It is so true how a specific place can hold so much meaning, so many memories, so much life. It can ground you. You know when you return to that place, you will feel that life and that love, even if that beautiful life is no longer on earth. I thank God that me and my mom had that time to carve out our special little place, Cannon Beach, Ocean Lodge, reading together with the fire going and the window wide open to the ocean. Just to know that I can always return there and experience exactly what we experienced together is incredible and so comforting. Thank you for sharing this and inspiring me to think about things differently than I have before.
