Peach picking.

One added benefit of maternity leave is that it's allowed time for us to build some deeper relationships with those in our community. We've been given the gift of time, and with it, we've gone peach picking and museum exploring and library hopping. I've enjoyed nights out with girlfriends and relished the solidarity in sisterhood.

These are the women and families that have rallied alongside us in our new chapter - meeting us where we're at and understanding when we need to duck out for naps, snacks, quiet. That we have found our people again here, that we continue to build fibers into the relationships at a distance, that we can laugh or cry and say, "me, too": I can't put a price on this.
