melzer family.

We spent four days at Hawley Lake with my entire family (all but 3 of them, who we missed dearly). There's a whole lot of us and we stayed in one huge cabin - which made for late nights of talking and games, and early mornings of screaming children. You better believe I took advantage of nap time everyday.

(warning: gazillion photos)

the porch (where lots of reading + visiting took place)

aspen grove + where's clint?

designers/ treehuggers

my little bro steven

aspens + moss + wildflowers

return of the NM70's, my favorite high school sneakers

abandoned cabins everywhere, filled with old treasures

one more... just in case there weren't enough of us already

There were many things about this trip to the mountains that I needed. It was simply beautiful. And my heart is full.

"Love is so big that you can die in it - die of self and be fully consumed in it. It's what you are, and it will have all of you back to itself again. So simple." - Byron Katie, Loving What Is


  1. I'm so very proud that so very many of these pictures were taken by me. Hopefully that means my approval rating is on the rise.

    Maybe next year we'll get everyone there and for more than a few days.

    Lots of love from Anna! :)

  2. Wow, you have such an awesome way of making my blog of picutres look so drab. Can I just copy and paste? Well done Angela.

  3. By the way, I think that I just clicked on your blog like 5 times to relook at your pictures. You have the touch. 1 picture + Angela's touch = wonderfullness.
