Woke a little after six with that sort of guilt that I should put new life into the fire that went out during the night. The sort of guilt that all wood stove owners know. With the sound of the furnace kicking on repeatedly downstairs I knew the temp had dropped. My phone screen informs me it will be below zero all of today and dropping to -22 tomorrow. The other side of my brain is thinking tropical palm fronds, ranunculus, anthurium, and summer elopement picnics. Photos of the wood stove don’t seem to do this nice morning scene of mine much justice so here are some summer elopement photos to warm your heart. Thanks to the talented Joel Allegretto for capturing love and the beautiful light of Alaska with his camera and thank you to Erin of Alaska Destination Weddings for pulling off what I would say are pretty much fairy tale elopements.
More on the palm fronds later.
