Time passes by, the world changes, but memories created with dear friends are forever.
Walking through the University of Minnesota campus as a family was a surreal intersection of memory and life and the realization of 20+ years flying by. Many memories created with great friends. Seeing the opportunity of the next stage of life for Dominic. Witnessing the steAdy forward movement of time over multiple decades. Inspiring. Humbling. Warming the soul. So much joy.
The smell of fresh soil always gets me! On a hike with my mom and my family we happened upon a patch if freshly dug dirt where a new trail was being put in. Closing my eyes to breathe it in and appreciate it was so rewarding.
