to celebrate the official start of summer and say yes to tradition (we started last year), the kids and i went strawberry picking. it was a beautiful morning - oh how i love these three very different little berry babies of mine, and felt so grateful and alive this morning to be their mumma walking alongside them in life. holding their hands (for now!), sharing these moments. i adore them so deeply. being here in this field had me reflecting on picking here on a warm morning last year, finally feeling a breath and a small corner turned in living life here. how far we have all come in a years time, how fast life whizzes by. how much time i have wasted on sadness and anxiety when i could have been embracing so much. but, we learn. and grow. and keep going...
the strawberries were much smaller this year but just as delicious. many more got eaten than picked, perfect living-in-the-moment moments!
could this mischevious boy be any cuter? after tiring from picking, he sat down and filled the rest of his basket with everyone elses loot! and then offered us all the white ones he'd gathered in exchange! he's good like that.
so...i know i'm not in this space on a regular, reliable schedule. i'm spending less and less time on the computer these days and more and more living in the moment. licking up every last juicy drop of my three amazing children, and exploring the world with them. i love to share and connect here, but this season of my life does not allow for much time spent online. i hope you understand! sending summery love your way..!
