My oldest baby turns 8 today! I can’t believe it! I honestly don’t feel like eight years have gone by since the first moment I held him. The sad part is that I don’t accurately remember that day. I remember big parts, and glimpses, but I’ve lost too much. So, in honor of his birthday, I made a wish. I wish to go back in time for just one day and hold him again.

It snowed all day yesterday. We had to clear the sidewalks twice. And then we woke up to this. Oh. My. Goodness.

We planted a peach tree, plum tree, and maple tree. Little blossoms perched on a branch, bristling in the wind, reaching for the sun. Soon you will be leaves and fruit to eat, but for now, you are beautiful. My peach tree blossoms Baby… Keep Reading
