Being a part of something is life giving. Feeling a sense of belonging, feeling rooted and grounded in a community is what restores me. My whole life I’ve longed for a neighborhood, for a place that is mine. To not be a silo alone in a field, but to have others with me. To create a place where I am accepted as I am, and a valuable part of something bigger than myself. I’ve been blessed with a beautiful family, whom I love and who I know deeply loves me. But to find and build your tribe as an adult is something spectacular. As my house filled with warmth and laughter, as neighbors walked, drove and rode their bikes over to spend the evening, I found myself basking in the glow of a community I am deeply rooted in. People I love, stories I’m a part of, lives that have become a part of mine. I am deeply humbled and grateful for the many people who I have in my life, my community, my tribe, my neighbors. Thank you.
