All photos taken by
my talented dad. As a retired cinematographer, he now focuses on oil pastel paintings,
mismatched tracksuits, lunch outings with “the Romeos” and puppy playdates with
Finn and Coco. If you’re interested in art, check out his painting portfolio.

Like any little girl
with a big imagination, our backyard became my play area. Besides countless
fake weddings (my younger brother typically stood in for the groom), I was
completely obsessed with “The Secret Garden.” I spent hours outside imagining
Mary’s adventures. I still have a soft spot for the book today. I guess we
never really do grow up after all!

      Yes, it is! I can't even remember the last time we actually grew fruit down there, but the name still sticks!
