We went apple picking today with twenty-two people, and there wasn't a wrinkle in the entire day.

I am here today to say go. do. live. feel. eat. touch. spend. take. give. laugh. yell. cry. get out. reach out. stop working. get working. climb. fall. hurt. heal. hold. hope. fumble. fear. reach. react. act out. bite off. make do. make new. make from scratch. borrow. beg. share. love.

It's all we can do.

Do it now.


{Who knew apple picking was so inspiring?}

More tomorrow. Thanks for reading.

I love to apple pick with my guys. It takes about 30 minutes to fill three huge bags but we have so much fun in that half hour!

I wish you would make a poster with those words on it. I would hang it in my kitchen to help myself wake up every morning!
