Looking back on these moments reminds us that we’ve been fortunate to work with an incredible team and generous collaborators.

We are on a mission to create a community who loves to take time to reflect, connect deeply with others, and document the seasons of life as we experience them over time.
We wish you a peaceful and memorable 2022 and thank you for joining us as part of our story this past year.
