The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice—
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world
determined to do
the only thing you could do—
determined to save
the only life you could save.

All You Need | Christy & Tanner | Engaged!

“Love, love, love.
Love, love, love.
Love, love, love….

Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It’s easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.”

It’s true! And Christy and Tanner know it! Love! Love! Love! These sweet, sweet people are truly in love and truly believe in the words of this song. (Thanks, Beatles! You’re the best!)

And I LOVE watching them live this philosophy, every day! Oh, and aren’t they cute to boot?! Christy in her Kate Spade and Anthro dresses and Tanner with his 1932 Roadster! Trés chic, you two! Your Wenatchee wedding is going to be epic and I can’t wait to document it next year!!!
