|December roses from my garden for my girl|
|Mads with her friends and sisters|
|A feast! Party food for dinner|
|Proud mum with her girl (and the two photo bombs!)|
|Roasting marshmallows well into the night|
|Ukulele from Grandma and Grandpa|
|Another feast, this time for breakfast after the "sleep" over|
I didn't leave the church. As someone wisely pointed out, the church--rather, that specific and small community of believers--had left me.
