We’re having a gorgeous fall in Virginia — sunny days and cool evenings, when you step into the night and feel blanketed by the misty air and see the moon through a haze. I was privileged to spend one of these gorgeous weekends on a personal retreat at Corhaven, out in the Shenandoah Valley, to spend time reading and listening and praying and to mark this significant moment of healing.
We recently had family pictures taken. It’s been seven years since we did this last, and it’s hard to believe that the last time we did this the girls were itty-bitties. They’re not itty-bitty anymore! We’re starting to enter the teenage phase. Oh, these girls. I love being an aunt.
