Here’s a round-up of a few of my favorites.
On the wall around Graceland, during my birthday trip there in 2011 with Jonathan, Alissa, and Kate. (After this picture was taken, I can clearly remember Kate saying, “Was the hand thing really necessary?” Yes. Always.)
On the grass near the port in Galway, on one bright, sunny Irish morning. (So green.)
At ZooLights, a yearly occurrence at the National Zoo in DC.
In line for Space Mountain during my first-ever visit to Disney World — with the button to prove it.
On top of the Crusader-era walls in Jerusalem’s Old City.
With Berit at the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum IN FRONT OF THE STARSHIP ENTERPRISE FROM THE ORIGINAL SERIES.
Jonathan, Jenelle, and I at the lookout over the edge of the crater in the Negev Desert near Mitzpe Ramon.
Hiking IN the crater.
Reflected in a window at the top of the Galata Tower in Istanbul.
On the edge of a mountain in Petra, with an arrangement of rocks that is hopefully still there.
In front of the U.S. Capitol Building.
On the bike path through the Shark Valley Area of Everglades Park in Florida.
Mom and Dad on the steps in Safed at sunset.
In the throne room at Gyeongbokgung in Seoul.
Berit and I in Matapouri Bay, New Zealand.
And, finally, this is what happens when you have a camera and sit on top of a mountain in Wadi Rum for an hour or so.
Live Long and Prosper, y’all.
