a few words about miss chelsea elizabeth...

she likes: making kites, dancing in the rain, adventures, little-while friends, letters, whole-leaf tea, crayons, bare feet, jumping in rivers/streams/creeks/waterfalls, language, catching the clock as it changes numbers, sleepovers, trains (big or small), cuddling & waking up before the sun rises, among other random things.

oregon-born, seattle-raised, bellingham-bred and franco-refined, she had moved back to the states from her affairs across the atlantic & now resides in columbia city with french husband & love of her life rémy. they spend most of their time taming the garden, taking care of their three chickens & two cats, and preparing the urban homestead for a new little chick of their own.

our first christmas as a married couple, tippen's first snow, our first christmas tree!!! 'tis the season!!!

clermont at night is all lit up this time of year.

there is a HUGE ferris wheel that comes to town every december,
and of course the giant christmas tree.

this is the church about a block from our house in chamalières.
also lit up.

on top of someone's garbage can.
