In love with this world

I am in love with this world

I have nestled lovingly in it

I have climbed its mountains

Roamed its forests

Sailed its water

Crossed its deserts

Felt the sting of its frosts

The oppression of its heats

The drench of its rains

The fury of its winds

And always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings.
~John Burroughs

So beautiful. Katie, you have accomplished so many amazing physical feats. When you are 110 years old and look back on your life I bet you will have no regrets of things you wished you had done. So awesome! (Of all the pictures, my favorite was the shoe tan lines. Is that your picture?)

Katie said...

Thanks Spring! Yes, these are all pictures I took. The tan lines (and burn lines :) ) is from our trip through the Grand Canyon. It is a fun shot.

Love the pictures! And I love you! P.S. I left a baby shower invite on your clipboard the other day and one for Liz...could you get that to her possibly? I didn't have her address and I figured you would probably see her.

Spring said...

I can't believe you took all these pictures. They are so beautiful, you have a real talent for photography! But my favorite is still the tan line feet because you just know there are awesome stories behind the picture.

My favorite post ever. Your life is National Geographic worthy. (as are your great photos)

I LOVE this post! I can't believe you've seen such incredible places, and what a beautiful poem to put it to. Unreal. I love the mountian photos. Those are places I've only imagined. And I love the suntans pic. So great!
