autumn in provence

_DSC9206.jpg

There’s something so incredibly timeless and inspiring about vineyards—the heart, and sweat, and effort put in and then the surrender of yourself, of letting all go and trusting and hoping and waiting in every season…Taking each day in, wholly and fully – giving and receiving a whole lot of grace. I think that’s what love is a little bit like, too and I wanted this shoot to be a reflection of that, of surrender and contentment, of being all there. I think so often as humans, we forget how to feel in a world characterized by hurry and so focused on the next item on our agenda, growing a little numb to the big things in life we encounter, and sometimes even one of the happiest days of our lives. I wanted this editorial to be a reminder to all of us, that it’s okay to slow down to feel and remember the little things again, to remember the sweet touches and glances and the hearty laughs, because time is such a precious gift and there’s so much beauty and joy in the little things.
