Lovely writing Jennifer. I am a HUGE fan of spring, a time of rebirth and renewal. It's the perfect time to think about transformation and sounds like you are ready to blossom into something fresh and vibrant, while securely keeping those roots down deep. xo Desha


As a mom of multiples dusting off my resume and figuring out how to head back into the working world--and what that will look like trying to mother and teach--this post is hugely resonant. Thank you for the connections to spring and resurrection!


Thanks Jennifer. Your post today touches me deep, as I too am returning to work after almost two years home with my twin girls. How do I provide for my family and for myself? Reminding myself that all of nature goes through springtime gives me hope and patience and comfort. Thank you for your post today. - shaz
