Ages You’ve Been


About the photo: Exploring our surroundings has been a big part of our 2017 as a family.  Last weekend we went up to Julian: we window shopped, drank fresh apple cider, peopled watched, had lunch, picked pumpkins, and learned about Pippin Apples (they were George Washington’s favorite!) while buying a bag of them from a local orchard stand.  Yesterday I turned 39.  I think what I’ve noticed most is the ways in which I can trust in the years I’ve lived up to this point to help guide me through the now.  I’m enjoying being able to lean into and trust in this kind of “experience’: the ages I’ve been.
