  1. Hi Lisa! I was thinking of you early this morning as Emma and I were sitting outside, enjoying a Cape Cod morning. I read your blog post on the death of a friend and was really moved. I’ve also felt that love, respect, and sensation of being small and youthful next to beautiful old trees. I’m glad it looks like your maple is going to survive — she is lucky to have you! Also really enjoyed your post on raspberry diving! I hope you’re having a wonderful summer! Xo


    1. Thank you Katrina! I’m glad you can relate to some of my feelings. It was hard to put them out there. As for raspberry diving…well, I’ve spent the rest of the summer tomato diving because I let every thing grow crazily! I hope your summer and travels have been fun.
