1 Degree Fahrenheit

Our youngest returned to her freshman year of college a week ago. Yesterday, she and two of her suite mates put up on Facebook a whole bunch of photos of themselves frolicking in the snow. They made me happy to see, because the girls seem to be enjoying themselves. Here's one of the girl I love.

It's so odd to raise your children, to have them coming and going from under the roof of your shared home, to be able to sense what their days are like just by seeing them, and then suddenly they live somewhere else, and you have no idea of the shape of things. So I look for clues. Like the photos of my girl and her roomies.

I was also looking through her Instagram photos, I think as a way to peer into her life away from me.  This was what she woke up to on a 1 degree day this week. I think the photo is rather cool. (Pun intended?)


  1. It appears to me that you have done the most wonderful job of raising your babies into adults.

  2. She has the eye. No doubt about that.

  3. She just has the prettiest smile. :)

    By the way, I love the blog redesign and the homey photos combined with the handwriting font.
