I took this picture at the Race Street Pier where we went on a particularly glorious summer walk after work. Eliza and Sophia are always on the move. I can’t quite figure out when they’ve gotten so big or how I can slow down time and savor them more. Therein lies the challenge: spending time with them and building your future relationship now. Relationships don’t happen over night and they cannot happen through a series of sparse moments. They happen through meaningful and frequent interactions, through finding common interests, and through conversations.
Sophia and I have the best conversations as of late. One memorable one comes to mind where she wanted the same of something just because Eliza had this amount. We talked about not measuring yourself or what you have against others’ but valuating your possessions in terms of what it is that would make you happy.
