Sonnet 29

Thought I'd share a few more favorites! Perhaps this will have to be a three-part series; I just can't decide which shots to share! We met the cutest elderly couple out for an afternoon walk. The gentleman asked if she needed a stand-in for her missing groom;) I thought it was such a lovely idea to imagine that once upon a time they were newlyweds too. They've walked through life hand in hand together. With suitcase it toe, it seemed symbolic of the beautiful road ahead for Stephanie and John. (You can see the couple walking off in the distance together in the shot above.) 

Stephanie shared her favorite sonnet with Danny and I on our wedding day. Today, I'd like to dedicate it to she and John. 

With Love,


When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
