maddenvallis.com – monthly love

SIX MONTHS! WOO! Six months is a milestone in my opinion, so we are gonna once again celebrate the love and talent of Mr. and Mrs. Madden!

Forgive me, readers and M&K: I’m a little sore today, as I partied along to one of the best east coast bands last night, Slowcoaster. So if I’m lacking in the words and the story-telling, you know why ;)boots

The 10th of the month crept up on me this time! I suspect this is how it’ll be Matt and Kim: the time flying by, and you guys enjoying every second of your together-dom. So in the spirit of time passing, I thought I’d share some of K+M’s subjects that have definitely seen their fair share of time.old docktins

Gritty and old and romantic in the most un-obvious way. Me likey. The nostalgia of things and places like these stirs something deep within me; you know that they have seen many great stories, and their history inspires the imagination. Kim and Matt are the best at capturing this beauty.cornfield

A step back in time. Nova Scotians are so lucky to be able to access these time-worn places; places that seem frozen in their former glory. A living museum. I can’t wait to get back to explore the back roads, walk along a cow path or two, and definitely root around for some vintage finds.suitcase

Well, I hope you found a similar Sunday calm that I did through this set of photos. I introduced Matt and Kim’s work on BB by saying they evoke a nostalgic feeling within me, and I’ll stick to that story again and again. Thank you guys for giving me a touchstone to bring me back to my slower, simpler roots.
