How is it Thursday before I've been able to get here to say hello? Life, I suppose. It's been full. There have been college visits (to our alma matter, a trippy experience to say the least), a launch party and celebration at Taproot, the garden that is calling for my attention, end of year school and activities, recitals and concerts, and in the midst of all of that...our baby girl turned seven. How very wild to have our youngest be seven big years old! Annabel wanted to have her party at a wildlife park she loves, with her cousins and a few friends. She smiled all day long, and it was just a joy to watch her joy. She's a firecracker this one, with a heart of gold, and she is so very loved! Happy birthday, Annabel!
