The Best Thing

When I was a kid, I loved back-to-school time. I loved picking out my backpack, buying pens and pencils and dreaming about what my new teacher and classroom would be like. There was also always a small undercurrent of anxiety. Would I fit in?

Big Love Happens In The Small Moments

She Was Just Like Me

When my daughter, Lucy, was two years old she decided to see what would happen if she put her finger in the hinge of the refrigerator door as it shut.
