I love a good cloudy day at the playground after the rain. The light is diffuse and moody and everything looks soft and lovely.

And so it was when we headed to the playground during the post-holiday weekend so the kids could try out their new stomp rocket and bubble guns, both of which were a big hit.

I hope the holidays brought you at least some moments of peace and joy (ours did) and that the new year brings you love in abundance.

Thank you for being here.

And PS yes, I will be rounding up my year of sibling photos in the new year - see you then!
