Grow

21 Jun

With the first harvest of the season finally here, we are so excited to make dinner tonight with food from our own garden.  After the stress and worry the last six months have brought- the creative drought, leaving my job, going back to school, working tirelessly to find the next path in life; it is a good feeling to finally be able to enjoy what we have been cultivating together as a family.
