jenniferhoiyin We've been non stop this weekend showing family around but I really want to remember the way she looked as she crawled just far enough away from my tummy nibbles, giggling until she was breathless. And that doughy sweet smell she has. Oh my heart. 24h

jenniferhoiyin It's been a hard week for this one, she started school and although her first day went well, everything went downhill from there. This moment is from when I took her to tea at an English Cottage with a perfect summer garden. 2w

jenniferhoiyin Cannot stop thinking about @meg_in_progress's experience in helping rescue children from human trafficking (sex slavery). And those sweet little two year olds (among many many others) who are undoubtedly as spirited and vibrant as mine, being deprived of their childhood as they're forced into living such a life. Go read her blog, and let it move you to action. 1mon

jenniferhoiyin This week a monsoon of sorts left so many homes around us with flooded and ruined basements. Most of what was lost were simply things, replaceable, material, though I can't imagine the stress it has caused. Today I'm grateful for my people safe in my arms, sunny weather, and this mini field of black-eyed susans. 1mon
