Having Lucas has taught me to slow down and appreciate the simple pleasures in life. I find it is often the small, unexpected moments that make our days together so special.
Recently while on a long road trip, Lucas and I passed a small farm in Pennsylvania with a wooden sign out front advertising blueberry picking. The timing couldn't have been better, as Lucas was beginning to get antsy after sitting for so long in the car. We pulled off the side of the road and walked through their farmers market. Lucas was given a small white bucket and we were sent on our way. We snacked and picked our way through the blueberry fields, until Lucas had enough to munch on while we finished our car ride back home to Virginia.
