    Oh goodness. She speaks a truth that soars right through my chest. (And another that is always true for me: any more than 2 glasses and I have a hangover in my future.)

    I love this…
    Found you via “but then I had kids”. Loving your blog too. Holding onto those everyday moments has been a journey for me as well.
