Spring, finally! Though it's still cold (burning fires and wearing sweaters), the snow is slowly melting and the sun seems warmer and happier.
It's been awhile since I wrote. The year's been both fast and slow. The fastness that comes with aging, motherhood, keeping busy... and slowness that comes with endless chores, evening exhaustion, and a long winter. But we're rounding a corner, thanks to the weather, and light and energy is returning.
We've closed down our store's brick location - not because it was unsuccessful or unenjoyable, but simply to simplify. We're operating online-only, allowing for more reserves, flexibility, and freedom. It was a great experience, running a small town shop, and I'm glad we did it.
2013 is shaping up to be a wild ride in itself, but more on that later.
Our kiddo continues to be awesome, doing his own thing, at his own pace, and taking us all along for the ride. His joy and giggles know no bounds, and every day is a happy one. Our adventures through the medical system have only strengthened my resolve to remain an intense and dedicated mother, continually being proven that my own motherly intuition is the height of knowing his abilities and strengths. And even then, he surprises me, and I expect this will always be the case. What lucky parents are we.
