I can look at her one minute and still see my little girl. The one who loves stuffed animals, the art table, and “Mommy”. Blink. I also see a young lady. One who doesn’t want to sit at the kids table anymore and who loves to be part of the adult conversation. A young lady who rarely lets “Mommy” slip from her lips (mostly “Mom”), and one who is ready to take on a new chapter; middle school. I am savoring braids and stuffed animals for now. I know they will fade too quickly.Learn More

Harvesting the fruit from our labor in the garden is such a timely example of how dreaming big, planning long, and working hard can lead to something great. It serves a reminder right now (as I am working 14 hour days, staying in my pj’s, not tending to the piles of laundry) that at some point in this journey there will be a harvest. A harvest that can change my family’s life experience. A harvest that will teach my daughters so many lessons I want to share with them before they leave for college. A harvest that culminates dreams I have had for over a decade. And like this basket of heirloom tomatoes picked fresh from our garden, I think it will be so very worth the effort.
