"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It's to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~ Elizabeth Stone
True statement and becomes even more evident when she leaves for college. While I am excited for all the adventures she has ahead of her in this new experience of independence and self reliance, I want to go too.
This weekend she came home for a visit. Her first words to me coming off the train were, "Mom, I love college." I'm so happy. I just wanted to sit with her and hear about all her new friends, classes and teachers. I listened to stories from getting meals to relating to her fellow floor mates.
All weekend I wanted to make a photo that spoke to her precious presence. This one seemed fitting.
