I have learned that even in a tough season of life, we can still make room for beautiful new memories. These two darling souls make me a stronger and better woman than I ever would have thought possible, and the freedom to love them with everything inside me is the greatest gift I've been given.
Carving pumpkins today was a reminder that what feels at first like just going through the motions can lead to moments of true joy and light. Henry made us sing happy birthday to the pumpkins and blow out the candles. All Alice wanted was to wiggle away so she could go splash in the puddles. My two treasures, just being themselves, their sweet innocent spirits lighting up the world.
