Summer in the city is always full of things to do. It's perfect for family "date" nights - something that I feel strongly about. It didn't really matter that none of us are fans of going to the ballet. What mattered was filling another summer evening with time together outdoors in the community we love. Sometimes I miss all the time Todd and I had together before kids, but then I realize that because of them we do more, see more, try more. laugh more and see things through child's eye's again. It's a time in our lives that is golden. It has and continues to change me for the better. I document these every day times through photos and this blog because it helps me see this life for what it is - special, blessed, beautiful. I never want to forget how lucky we are to be here, safe, happy and together.
