I read a wise book that said when you don’t have the answers, you can find them in nature. By sheer irony did we recently (as in yesterday) find this beautiful trail a few steps from our home. By following a handful of trails, we explored a pond and ended up at one of our favorite playgrounds. I went back again today with my macro lens and (literally) focused on the smaller details of life. I think it’s because the big details just feel a little too big right now. Wishing you all well.
My new mantra: happy toddler = happy life. A perfect day with our pumpkin, who has a newfound love for wagons.
This weekend we played with leaves, picked up pinecones and enjoyed those last rays of sunshine before it got too cold to stay out. And then we went inside and helped ourselves to warm mugs of hot apple cider. Milk for the little one, who will be two in a couple short months. In my eyes, he is still so much a baby, but when I look at these photos, I can also see a boy. Oh, how I wish time would slow down. Happy fall to you all!
… running through a sprinkler on a hot summer day. Hope you’re all staying as cool as this kid!
You’re always willing to play. You make the best animal noises. (Much better than mom’s.) We have great adventures together when it’s just the two of us. You will read “The Foot Book” to me 10 times in a row in that funny accent. You kiss me goodnight, every night. These are only five out of a million. Happy father’s day, we love you!
