This has been a summer of change for us, and bittersweet.

Our son Noah has gone to college in Walla Walla, WA. And do we ever miss him. Before he left we all wrapped up in a giant starry night scape for a rare family photo.

My dad died suddenly, in Maine and we honored him in Mount Shasta at a Buddhist monastery. They have beautiful funerals and kind monks. 


These life events remind me how short our time is parenting, and being on earth. I have become an older mamma now, reminding the new, young exhasted ones:

It goes fast. Really. It does.

Enjoy each moment as much as you can.

Practice gratitude.
