I had no idea it was possible for one person to change so dramatically, so significantly over the course of four short years.

I went through your answers to my survey earlier this week, and before diving into this week’s Love List, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated.

As you might have noticed, I did not even attempt to set goals for August. Dave’s broken elbow (which is almost completely healed, thank God!), back-to-back visitors, and then our first (wonderful!) trips of 2020 threw off any semblance of routine in our house from mid-July onward. It felt like the right time to pause […]
