“So where are you going to college?”
“A school out in Georgia”
“Wow- that is quite the drive from Utah. Which school?”
“Georgia Military College”
Gretchen is a lively girl. She is confident, smart, and mature for her age. When I hang out with her, I feel like we have always been friends and that she is 26 along with me. Not a graduating high school senior. She comes from one the most thoughtful and genuine families I know. So, it shouldn’t be any surprise when Gretchen told me that she wanted to join the Navy. This girl has plans, knows how to work hard, and is as smart as a tack. After two years at Georgia Military College she wants to transfer to the Naval Academy in Annapolis. I have the all the respect in the world for this girl. She has the world in the palm of her hand.
Gretchen’s mom and dad has only two requests. For mom, she wanted a picture by the Dogwood Tree. This tree doesn’t normally grow in Utah, but it must be in the perfect spot because this one is strong and blossoming. For Dad, he wanted a picture with Gretchen and his old Land Rover. Gretchen was fine with the Dogwood Tree. But the Land Rover was another story….
With her two twin brothers gone on a church mission to Germany, the family dog has become a sibling and buddy to Gretchen. Guapo followed us all around the house and desperately wanted to be in the pictures. He photo bombed more than one picture.
This house. Guys, I am secretly waiting for their family to move so I can purchase it. It is full of charm and little details that make it the perfect place to call home. I really wanted to shoot inside their library. I adore that relaxing nook of the house.
Dad got his wish. The Land Rover pictures. It took a little lighter fluid (I think? Some flammable aerosol spray….) and a little hustle and bustle to get this car started up.
