I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.



I know that most of us can only handle so many pictures of the ocean/trees/Puget Sound, however I needed to post this one of Brad. Last Friday we took a personal day together (we blew off the gym, our to do lists, his work, housecleaning, and a few others I'm sure) and it was fabulous. The morning was perfect for a little kite flying, both our new one (in pix) and the fighter kites that we constructed ourselves, then promptly destroyed. The tide was higher than I've seen, but still yielded a few good rocks. As the morning progressed, the skies warmed to blue, the turtles came out of the pond, and we indulged in a child-sized burrito at Gorrdito's (and by child-sized I mean the-size-of-a-small-child, "Get in ma belly!").
