Love this first family photo. . .
What a year this has been! More happiness than my heart can hold and loving every minute of it. Congratulations, Miranda and Luke and Siefer!
Happy New Year to all!
"When the road began to climb the first long swells of the Divide, Alexandra hummed an old Swedish hymn, and Emil wondered why his sister looked so happy. Her face was so radiant that he felt shy about asking her. For the first time, perhaps, since that land emerged from the waters of geologic ages, a human face was set toward it with love and yearning. It seemed beautiful to her, rich and strong, and glorious. Her eyes drank in the breadth of it, until her tears blinded her. The Genius of the Divide, the great, free spirit which breathes across it, must have bent lower than it ever bent to human will before. The history of every country begins in the heart of a man or a woman."
