Today is my son Max’s ninth birthday. I can hardly believe how quickly the time has gone by. Exactly two years and four days later on November 15, 2006 I had my second child, Sophia. Becoming a mother has been the most amazing thing I have ever done and ever will do. I am amazed by how much love and compassion a mother can have for her children and am truly, utterly blessed by their love and presence in my life.
Today, I dedicate this beautiful post to my children, Max and Sophia, who mean the world to me and who I can hardly wait to share the world with them. I look forward to not only being their loving, supportive mother but being their teacher to live a life with a loving, open mind and heart towards others.
All those photos were taken in October near the St. Croix River and at a nearby Apple Orchard in Minnesota.
Happy Birthday Max and Sophia! May the world be yours to discover and embrace!
