Six has always been one of my favorite numbers. My love for it only grew as I experienced Briar as a six year old and now Avery. There is something so transformative about the age, I remember my own time at 6 and genuinely marvel in all that the girls are discovering, shedding and claiming for their own. Reading Bethany’s post on six was a gift. The way she wrote it would leave me completely green with envy if I didn’t love it so much. It is spot on six!

Go, enjoy it, almost as much as you enjoyed being six yourself.
