  • ☀️🌸 Nothing more than zinnias flourishing along a rugged, white picket fence, to remind me that 
life is a fascinating journey of
simultaneously weathering the storm, and beautiful growth.

Also, I ❤️ walking though neighborhood alleys. Do it sometime.

  • 📝 We’re 7 years apart… and very different people. I was the type A, serious older sister, he was the easy going, curious younger brother. I’m a Capricorn, he’s a Gemini. And while I was away at college, he was at home caught in the middle of a failing marriage. .
We went through our parents divorce when I was 25 and he was 18, and I held little hope for the two of us to ever have a strong relationship.
.
I felt lots of guilt knowing he took the brunt of the situation at home, alone. There were so many emotions between the two of us… ranging from hurt, grief, anger, sadness, frustration... Scott was forced to be an adult before he should have been, to be strong for both of them. He was put in the middle of so much, without a choice, while I was beginning a career in a new city, and trying to navigate loving both my parents as separate people.
.
Over the past 10 years, it seems that as we walked down our own roads of personal growth, it allowed us to grow together as #siblings, too. And I believe that time truly does heal hearts. .
I see so much good in Scott (@paasco // @linksandrinksgolf).
He is loyal, and charismatic.
He is an amazing husband, high school teacher, friend, son…..
And brother. .
I love the things that make him and I different, rather than seeing them as reasons to push each other away.
.
I spent the earlier part of this week in northern Minnesota with him and his wife, and it reminded me of how far we’ve come. I drove home with an open heart, thinking of the bond we have, that I never thought would exist. .
I’m so grateful that neither of us gave up on each other.
Life ebbs and flows, but our roots remain. ❤️

  • 🌽💛 End of July = sweet corn in its prime!👏🏻 My favorite way to eat it right off the cob is with garlic basil butter. We had last night, for the first time this summer, and it was perfect. Tender with big crunch. 👌🏻
