5 years ago Sean and I were signing the papers on our first place together in Boston. After that we drove to Logan for me to fly to Seattle. We were en route as the first plane hit.

Today we signed the papers on our first new car.

We were lucky, we didn’t lose anyone, but how close we came was sobering.

Looking at our life now, our little girls, our house, the business, I hope that we have honored the chance we have been given.

It’s hard to stay on track and always live each day to the fullest. I hope that with reminders like today, we will always remember what a gift each day together is. I think the best way to do that is by raising Briar and Avery with as much passion, patience, integrity and humor as we can.
