by the sea...

over the past two weeks we've found ourselves on the water, by the water, in the water, and staring at the water.  i can't tell you how nice it was to fall asleep with sound of water lapping at the shore.  the night before our wedding the tides were just right so that the sound from my bed was the sound...you know the one we can't quite explain...the sound of round rocks rolling over one another.  that is how i fell asleep...well that and the sound of hobbes chasing a fly around the room.

one of the coolest sounds during our wedding was after the beautiful reading that our dear friend emily read, that i shared yesterday.  we asked everyone to look out across the water for a moment of silence to remember and honor those whose moment has past and those whose lives came before making our lives and this moment possible.  in the middle of that time with only the sound of the wind rustling the leaves above, one large wave broke out in the cove.  a lone and random wave.  the sound was breathtaking...and the timing was unreal.

  1. I get goosebumps thinking about that wave!! The sea was quiet otherwise during the whole ceremony, except for that one moment. Incredible!!
