kinders discover and play.
you can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
as our temps take a dip into the zero-ish range,
it is good to remember the importance of connection,
the joy of giving to others, and the comfort of the sun.
“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,
the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.
this crisp winter air is full of it.”

dear mom –
“just a few photos from xmas. still having shutterfly problems so thought i’d better at least send something. felix is talking, saying ‘car, ear, nose’ and magnus is crying over patsy cline songs. just back from swimming at ellen’s house with the dairy cows watching us from the other side of the fence. terry has his triathlon in two weeks then he can finally relax and not train every night. had our outdoor movie night on the weekend and it was great, everyone had fun and the kids got to stay up late and be maniacs.
what’s going on at home?”
❤ love, holli
