A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown.

I remember when Scott and I went to get our very first tree together. I remember buying ornaments and taking a zillion pictures of it decorated. It sent a thrill right through me to see our very first tree sparkling in the living room of the apartment we were renting. It almost made everything we were doing, building a life together, seem truly, truly, true. If you know what I mean.…Continue

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…Continue
