This past weekend was a weekend that we all took time to spend with our family and friends to reflect and celebrate; to give thanks for what we have in our lives that means something to us. This year, my wife and I spent the holiday with our good friends Ashley and Ben in Columbus, OH. Just the four of us, and our 3 dogs and two cats between us.
I’m thankful to have friends such as these to share my life with. I’m thankful to have had the dogs along and to have had a solid four days to live in complete comfort in a home out of town, a home where we were free to drink coffee all morning, walk around the park, eat fabulously, and in general have the perfect three days and four nights.
Here are some photos I shot with Ashley. A few looks into the life of one of the people, along with her husband Ben, as close to mine and Leah’s hearts as though they were blood family. It’s a home that has many areas where Ashley and Ben live their lives though here are only the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Still, these are critical spots in any house to see the lives of those who live in them. And in this house in particular, critical of the personalities and tastes of the great, talented, inspiring people who live in them.
It’s rare air breathed in place where it doesn’t matter if you are in the bed you sleep in every night because that isn’t the only thing that qualifies the place you are as a home; we were unmistakably home in this house: inspired, comfortable, and happy.
