Watch the butterflies flutter in our garden in the video below.
This month, we are marking milestone after milestone:
» 25th wedding anniversary for Jeremy and me
» 18th birthday for Jesse
» The end of elementary school for Dylan, marked by three-day 5th grade camping trip
» Last day of high school for Jesse
» Wedding of first grandchild for my mom Jeanne and dad Tony and of firstborn child for my brother Sky and sister-in-law Angie
» Marriage of our eldest nephew Justin
» Graduation party for first grandchild of Jeremy’s parents, Jane and John
Just as the monarchs play in our garden for a fleeting two weeks at the end of each summer,
I am reminded to be here, now.
Live each moment in its fullness.
Breathe it all in.
Let it all go.
