“And so, with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
A short post today – we’ve just dropped the girls off for another summer working at camp. My oldest will be one of the directors, while my youngest will be leading the L.I.T. program. They’re both thrilled (and a little nervous) about the step up in responsibility. I’m excited for them, and know they’ll rise to the challenge.
Earlier in the week, my oldest graduated from the University of Toronto with high distinction. And the week before that, my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We have much to be grateful for and, yes, life does feel like it’s beginning over again with the summer.

2/3 Tbsp chopped fresh parley
