As a season of life fades out, a new season comes to fruition. This spring became a season of slowing down. For real, this time. I’m done glorifying being busy. I joke and call this my quarter-life crisis as I turned 25 in May, but
Spring was made up of:
Resigning from my teaching job to prioritize family
Getting excited over loads of gravel and topsoil for landscaping projects
TuesdaysTogether Marquette meetings
Foraging for ramps (wild leeks), morels, wild asparagus, and picking rhubarb
Dustin falling off of our roof and fracturing his pelvis (he’s totally fine! God bless!)
Ayden graduating from kindergarten
REBRANDING! More details to come, but Gemma Darr and I have something awesome brewing
Using the word “no” and spending more time with family
Below are a handful of iPhone photos and a few from my Canon as well. I think its important to share my “less perfect” photos - I’m a human with phone pics too. :)
Exploring in the Huron Mountains.
Moose tracks on my 25th birthday.

No more training wheels.
