Hard to pick just one moment

Three years ago today I became a mother.
Our family is more than the walls that we live in because of that day 3 years ago.
Our family has been increased by the love of a community who has become our family.
We have been tied and anchored to the roots of our family tree by this little sapling.
The magic in the world around us has become unavoidable.
All of the magic.
Cold snowy days and gloomy rainy afternoons give us the time to chill out and get silly at home.
You have always wanted to step just a little further away from where you are.
When you were just 3 days old I didn't think I could ever put you down.
It is still shocking to me that I haven't eaten you up, I love you so.

I suppose there is still time. Don't get too comfortable my Heart.

Benign Neglect

Benign neglect is a parenting philosophy that I strongly endorse, however it is a TERRIBLE way to engage people in your life through a blog. Maybe I'll try and get a bit more literate in the next few weeks.

Jeez eh? What the hell have I been doing for a month? Let these pictures demonstrate the active life of a Gemini lo' these many weeks:

Perfect Sunday mornings. Work conference in DC:

Running at Keuka Lake, NY:

Also, a little Thanksgiving to round out the great life. I've been knitting but have been really focussing on our home and family right now - hopefully more on that this week.
